Video: How to Paint Wood Furniture

Give your wood furniture a face lift with a fast, easy, and affordable DIY paint job. Here's how!

The time comes when we could all use a little change—in our decor. The fastest way to alter the look of a room is to swap out the furniture, but that’s not an economical option for the average homeowner. If you’re refreshing your space on a budget, your best bet is to shop your home, rearranging things you already own or giving outdated accents a fresh new look. That old dark-stained dresser? Or that blah-blonde wood bookcase? No problem. Simply take a brush, paint, sandpaper, and the tips from this video and you can reinvent your furniture and, as a result, your whole living space.
