The Best Paint for a Desk, Easy Painted Wood Desk

Lost & Found Decor

Today I am sharing the best paint for a desk, one that will give you a smooth finish with great results!

Prep Work Before Painting

Give it a good wipe-down with a degreasing cleaner.


It only takes a few minutes to clean your furniture piece–just spray it down with a cleaner, scrub off any gunk and dirt, then wipe clean with a wet rag.

Sand Before Painting

After I cleaned off the old desk, I gave the entire piece a light scuff sanding with 180 grit sandpaper.


What brush to use

I recommend using a good quality synthetic paint brush with Fusion Mineral Paint.


Multiple Coats

It’s normal for the first coat of paint to not completely cover the wood surface.  Often with a second coat, that’s when your piece starts to look pretty great!
