How To Prepare Your Furniture For a Smooth & Durable Paint Finish in 4 Simple Steps

I get asked so many questions about furniture preparation, there seems to be this crazy myth that it's difficult and complicated and I wanted to correct that.

You can do this easily... I promise!

I get so much joy from painting furniture and I want everyone to have that feeling.  My teaching method is about building confidence and empowering my customers.  With this in mind, I decided to create a flow chart walking you through the four steps of preparation and helping you assess your furniture at each stage. This way you'll feel amazing when you know exactly what prep you need to do for each individual piece and you'll understand exactly why.

As I started creating this flow chart I realised how much information I wanted to share... it turned into a 16 page reference guide to help you with all your furniture prep questions.

You're going to love it!

I've designed this guide to be your easy quick reference when you’re prepping a piece of furniture.

You can save the pdf to your phone and work through the flowchart each time you start a new piece.
You can also skip straight to a specific page if you want more information on a particular step or topic.

So why is furniture prep so important? We prep our furniture for two reasons...
1) We want a beautiful smooth paint finish
2)  We want great adhesion so that our beautiful smooth paint finish lasts
