Refinishing Pottery Barn Kids white table--which paint to use?

Posted by mybrowneyedgirls (My Page) on

I found a PBK table on CL that needs refinishing. I believe their kid's table is made of mdf, with a white lacquer finish. The finish is coming up on the table, and it has a lot of scratches. But, the price is right, so I don't mind refinishing it. What steps would be involved (such as sanding, priming, etc) and what type of paint should I use (actually, come to think of it, oil paint is now illegal in Ohio, so can it be done with latex paint?) Will it need a clear coat of some sort to protect the new finish (it's a craft table, so will see a lot of use). TIA!

Here's a link that might be helpful:

SW ProClassic, BM Impervo or any waterborne paint would provide a hard finish. You wouldn't need a clear coat. Just make sure you give it a couple of weeks to cure to its final hardness before using it.
