Painting Over High Gloss Furniture

Hi everyone! It’s Denise from Salvaged Inspirations! Has a shiny piece of furniture ever left you scratching your head on whether it’s laminate, Formica, or melamine? Well, you’re not the only one! Today is all about Painting Over High Gloss Furniture!

I started with a boxy, glossy dresser that I picked up for $30.  I knew it was laminate because of the slick plastic finish. Also, the grain pattern is EXACTLY the same on each drawer. Let’s get started!

Materials List:

White Lightning
Titebond Wood Glue
Orbital Sander
Sandpaper | Tack Cloth
White Dixie Mud
Conch Silk Paint
Golden Gemstone Mousse

How To:

Step 1:

First, I gave this dresser a good cleaning with White Lightning.  Then I repaired the loose drawer fronts by using some Titebond Wood Glue and clamps.

Step 2:

Next, I sanded the piece with an 80 grit sandpaper and my orbital sander. I did more than a scuff sand because of the damage on this piece.

Step 3:

I sprayed two coats of this Conch Silk Paint. This was my first time using this color. Feminine and calming… it’s gorgeous! This paint is self-leveling and brushes on beautifully as well!
