How to Prep Furniture for Painting: Bleed-through and Primer

HOW TO PREP FURNITURE FOR PAINTING: BLEED-THROUGH AND PRIMER

Today I’m giving furniture painting tips for updating old furniture. If you want to paint it white or a light color, watch this video before you start! Here’s an explanation of paint prep, primers, and paint “bleed-through”. I’ll explain what causes ugly dark spots from tannins, sap, and other staining problems. Learn how to prevent ugly tannin bleed-through stains, and how to fix them if they have already occurred. Even if you are using chalk paint you sometimes need to do surface prep work so you can flip furniture for maximum profit (or keep it for yourself!)
