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.
In April's live tutorial we talked through the full guide, plus I walked you through using it to assess your furniture on a few examples in the studio.

I hope this helps!
I'd love to hear from you...any feedback, thoughts, experiences using the guide on your furniture.
I'm planning more guides, I'll let you know as soon as they're ready! xxx
