Polycrylic is great because it's durable like Polyurethane, but it doesn't yellow over time and it's really low-odor.
For awhile now I’ve been thinking about the next project.
I've made this mistake before, and it's a sad moment. Primer will adhere to the laminate, and it will create a surface that your paint can adhere to.
It will keep your paint from scratching or peeling off, it will cover up the wood stain, and it will even cover up that musty smell old furniture tends to have. Once you allow your primer to dry (You probably only need to wait a couple hours, but I let it dry overnight.), it's time to paint the dresser.
Note: please call ahead to your location before dropping off large furniture donations.
Outgrowing your clothes or considering updating your closet?
But now 15-30 years later, are we stuck with a bunch of tear downs?
