One of the most important things you can do to help your painted furniture be long lasting is to learn how to clean your furniture before painting.

My favorite scrubber to use for cleaning my pieces is a Dobie sponge. As for a cleaner, you want to be sure to use something that is a degreasing product.

I work in areas, spraying down each area then scrubbing with a Dobie sponge. Then I wipe off the cleaner residue.


How to Clean

Once your piece has been wiped down, grease and grime scraped off, and any cleaner residue rinsed off, you’re ready to paint!
