It is helpful to clean the piece before starting to remove all the grease, grit, grime, and wax that tends to accumulate on a piece of furniture over time. Scrubbing it with a coarse cloth dampened with mineral spirits will do this. Scrub the piece until the cloth comes away clean. The proceed as directed otherwise to knock down any sheen with a green scotchbrite pad, then apply the primer and paint.

Hope this helps.
