Have a table, chair or even a desk that needs a new lease of life? Maybe you just want to add a pop of color to a room in your house?
Do you hate all the prep that goes into painting furniture? Do you wish you could skip the sanding and priming and have a brushstroke-free final product?
Well, I’m going to let you in on my secret to perfectly painted furniture. And the best part is, there’s no sanding and no priming needed!
Look at these items that I have previously painted. Notice the soft, velvelty like finish? How amazing is the color pay-off, too?

Both these pieces of furniture were painted with my ultimate secret – Velvet Finishes paint.
Whether you’re new to DIY or an old pro, you’re going to love this line of products developed by Kellie Smith. Every piece I’ve painted with this line has turned out simply stunning.

If there’s not enough choice for you there the Velvet Finishes website also has color recipes for you to mix up a whole other slew of beautiful, bold colors.
If you are going to paint something that has some sheen to it (like these IKEA nightstands that I painted) it’s a good idea to prep with the READY product. This easy spray-on product removes dirt, grime and deglosses to prepare your surface to take the paint.
And while a few coats of paint is all you need, if you know your piece will get used a lot, I also advise adding a top coat of PROTECT, a satin poly that goes on slightly white and dries to a beautiful finish.
I used both READY and PROTECT on my Guest Room Nightstands and they have held up perfectly to regular use. My Handsome Dresser doesn’t have any additional product other than paint and is also still holding up perfectly!
