How should I repaint laminate wood furniture? How should I repaint laminate wood furniture?

To repaint a piece of laminate wood furniture you should start by first sanding the surface lightly with a fine-grained sand paper. Then remove any dust left on the furniture from the sanding and apply a coat of high quality spray primer, such as Kilz or Glidden Gripper. This coat of primer will help the paint to adhere properly to the surface. Once the primer has dried you can apply several light spray paint applications. Finish the painting job by applying a high gloss or semi-gloss liquid acrylic top coat. Apply this top coat by using a sponge applicator, rather than a paint brush which can leave brush marks.
