April 25th, 2008

Bought a sofa table that was suppose to be black but isn't, what kind of paint do I use to repaint it?

Inside the store it looked black and the ticket said it was black but once I got it outside it wasn't and I couldn't return it. I want to paint it black to match the rest of my furniture in the room but not sure what type and finish of paint to purchase.

It depends on the texture of paint that is already on it. If it is in a matte finish you can use just about any kind of paint, acrylic waterbase or you can even buy a black or mahogany gel glaze. You brush the gel glaze on in sections and take a clean, dry rag and wip off while the glaze is still wet until you get the look you want. You can buy a matte or satin finish acrylic paint and paint it with a brush.

If the table is a slick finish you will need to use a Kilz primer before painting.

Either way, it is not a big job.
GOOD LUCK and I bet it will turn out great!
