Furniture Painting

Following are the steps to update old, tired looking furniture. It's really very easy and no sanding necessary. You will need some latex paint (any color you desire)I used black for this piece, plaster of paris, water,and modern masters metallic paint. I used ME-150 Silver, ME-209 Pewter, ME-659 Olympic Gold and ME-660 Pharoah's Gold. You will also need modern masters clear coat to protect your piece and a screwdriver to take off the pulls, a paint brush, a plastic disposable plate and a damp rag.

1. Clean your piece with the damp rag.
2. Remove hardware. 
3. Mix 1 c. paint with 1/2c. plaster of paris and 1/2 c. water in a container and stir well.
4. Paint entire piece of furniture.
5. Let dry over night.
6. Drop a dollop of each of the four metallic paints on your plastic plate.
7. Dip your brush in all four colors and brush onto your piece of furniture. I put more of the silver colors than the gold.
8. Let dry 24-48 hours.
9. Paint the clear coat on for protection. Let dry. 
10. Replace hardware. I painted my hardware ME-150 Silver. 
11. Voila!
