Painting furniture: semi-gloss? satin?
Hi everyone - I usually hang out at the Kitchen Table and several of the gardening forums, but I have a decorative painting question, and what better place to ask it than here?
I bought two of these pieces at a thrift shop for $5 apiece, to use as tables on my porch. They're reproductions, and I thought it might be fun to paint them. I've read a lot of instructions on how to paint furniture, but none of them mentions what sheen to buy.
I picked up some small bottles of acrylic paint to use for the decorative part of the project. They seem to be in a flat finish, but what about the base coat? I'll be out shopping for a creamy khaki Â what finish should I choose?
