Two tone furniture staining, diy wood stain - Try Out

Furniture pieces like this dresser redo make me think there are tons of you out there who could live double lives running successful furniture design or restoration businesses. After staining the border and adding another coat of sealer and a top coat of catalyzed lacquer, this is what the top looked like.
Wow, such inspiration from this week’s Paint Projects Party, you simply must visit so many of these links!  There are over 400 projects to browse, from furniture to floors to fabrics to home accents.  Oh the power of paint never ceases to amaze me!
These are my tried and true techniques for repairing, priming, and painting an old hand me down, or a lucky Craigslist or thrift store find like this damaged honey tone wood dresser. For the top I brushed on a thicker coat of Zinsser because it will get the most wear and tear.  It’s a personal preference to use the brush on formula, but for tabletops, desktops or other surfaces which will have lots o’ stuff sliding back and forth, a thick coat (even two!) of brush on Zinsser is a miracle worker, plus you can sand it smooth once it dries (in less than an hour per coat) making it easy to get really good bonding coverage in an afternoon.


Always Two Coats of Paint.  Once you’re primer is fully dry, sand any drips, brush marks, or paint residue and wipe down with a soft cloth. I have painted furniture for years and you have done a really good job explaining it to people that need to know. I repainted furniture for my baby girls nursery and one of the dressers had doors but Hello Cutie - A Two Toned Looker!
I never skimp with just one coat, two is always best for uniformity and even coverage, allowing 4 to 6 hours of drying time between coats.  There are two tools I won’t paint without. I have a lot of furniture painting to do over the next few weeks and this tutorial will help immensely.


I adore that dark sage-gray green she’s chosen, and the finish on the wood is the perfect tone. For the remaining two drawers and dresser, I put on two coats of latex paint and allowed it to fully dry.
