White paint can be tricky, so let’s dive in today and talk about what it looks like to get that perfect white finish on your next piece of painted furniture!
I have found that I get the best results, most consistently with actual furniture paints, rather than with using latex paint from the hardware store.
Prep is always your most important step! And when white is your paint color of choice, the right prep is even more important.
Nobody wants pink splotches on their white-painted furniture, so it’s best to go ahead prime.
It usually takes 3-4 coats of paint to get full coverage with a white color. The rule is, the brighter the white, the more coats you can expect.
If you’re looking for an ultra-smooth finish, my best suggestion is to apply your paint with a roller.
