How can I paint over cherry dining table?
We have a cherry dining room table-the one with the high-sheen, high-gloss surface. We have had this table for about six years now and we rarely use it because of this type of surface. I bought it because it was so beautiful, but soon realized we have to be very careful using it as to not scratch the surface. I know there are table pads but that defeated the entire reason for purchasing the table.
So, I would love to paint it an off-white color. I am in love with the Swedish painted furniture style
(nordicstyle.com). Could someone tell me if it would be difficult to paint over a surface like this and what are the steps? The table is in perfect condition but after six years of just "looking" at the table, I believe we'll be happier with a table we actually can use.
Thanks so much!
