I have a very old desk, (where i put my computer on.)
and it's color sucks, it doesnt match anything in my room.
so I want to pain it black.
Can i just take a brush and paint it with Acrylic Paint? =/
Or do i like have to BUY a special paint..? (I iz cheap).
n_n" Kinda wanna get it done Today. My family just moved into this new house. <=/ tipz?
Enamel would be better, oil even better but acrylic latex will work. Or spray cans if you do not have spray equipment.
If it is an old desk you really don't care that much about? I would use spray cans. Prime it and paint it. Just go slow and plan on several thin coats.
If you need to brush it on, use a latex product with 100 percent acrylic left behind when it dries. Plan on putting on two coats and you should rough up or otherwise degloss the surface and prime it with an alkyd primer first since it probably has an oil-based varnish on it. Add some Floetrol to the paint to help reduce brush strokes. Use a nice brush. Let it cure for awhile before you set anything heavy on it though.
