Painting Indoor Teak Furniture

I have a very good condition indoor teak buffet cabinet that I would like to paint. Does anyone have experience doing this? Do I need to strip and sand or could I just apply a good primer and latex paint?

Welcome to the forums Ray!

I've never had the occasion to paint any teak but since this is a piece of finished furniture [I assume] painting should be fairly straight forward. You need to first make sure any wax/polish is removed and then sand with 180-220 grit sandpaper, remove the sanding dust and apply a coat of oil base or pigmented shellac primer. Latex enamel can be applied over the solvent based primer although oil base or waterborne enamel will dry to a harder film than latex enamel = will wear better/longer.
