One of the most common questions I get about painting laminate furniture is if it should be sanded first. In my experience, no. Sanding laminate furniture can damage the laminate and basically ruin the piece. So, be careful.painting bedroom furniture 3SarinaSeptember 13, 2013 at 1:57 PMHaving made some furniture courtesy Ana White i totally ruined all those efforts by painting them awfully. since discovering your blog i have been reading your blog entries on painting furniture almost daily. i need some courage desperately to start on those. your posts are so nicely written and the after photos so beautiful, i feel i can do it even though i am in india and many of the products you talk about we don't even have here i think like polycrylicReplyDeletepainting bedroom furniture 4I'm so excited about this post!! When I got married 9 years ago, the furniture my mom surprised me with in high school came with me. I never liked the furniture, but it was a lovely gesture and I've never had the heart (or money) to part with it. We're moving at the end of the summer and I've dreamed of a new bedroom suite in the new house. Money-wise, that just might not happen. You've inspired me to paint this furniture and make it new for our new space! Thank you!We were going to put it in my 5 year old daughter's room whenever we got new furniture. I'm excited to maybe even paint it purple for her.painting bedroom furniture 5JessicaMay 1, 2014 at 2:42 PMI'm so excited about this post!!

I spent yesterday painting an old media console I bought in the 90's – not laminate but veneered and beaten to heck after 10 years, 3 children, 4 cats, 4 dogs, and 5 living rooms. I thrifted a barrister's shelf for its spot in the living room (my TV is mounted on the wall, so I don't really need a console any longer.) I am thinking it will live in the foyer next to my bedroom door and will host a thrifted pitcher and basin set. My next project is my kitchen table, chairs, and hutch. The hutch and table ARE laminate-topped. Wish me luck! I've also become addicted to spray painting. Thanks, Virginia!painting bedroom furniture 7Becky LongJanuary 2, 2014 at 10:10 AMYou have totally inspired me.

I tried the same technique on my kitchen cabinet doors which are formica, some are fine but others have chips taken out of them. I primed, painted and protected but still chips. Any advise?painting bedroom furniture 9JuneSeptember 8, 2014 at 12:42 PMIs painting laminate furniture the same as painting formica?

It was some pretty dated stuff, but I knew I could up update with paint. The pieces were laminate, which usually isn’t ideal, but I get tons of questions about how to paint laminate furniture, and I knew this would be a great chance to talk about it. So, here we go. This is how to paint laminate furniture. I paint the majority of my real wood pieces this way, too, so it really works for just about any sort of wood furniture.painting bedroom furniture 11The reason you should prime your laminate furniture first before painting is simple. Laminate has a shiny finish and if you just try to paint directly on it, the paint will not adhere well and you’ll visibly see the paint bubble up as soon as you apply it. I’ve made this mistake before, and it’s a sad moment. The solution is primer. Primer will adhere to the laminate, and it will create a surface that your paint can adhere to. It will keep your paint from scratching or peeling off, it will cover up the wood stain, and it will even cover up that musty smell old furniture tends to have. Basically, primer is awesome.painting bedroom furniture 12Virginia, I thought some furniture items looked familiar and when I took the tour of your bedroom, saw the before picture and after, I remembered I found your beautiful blog earlier this year and commented on it.
