painting end table


I have a wood end table that has been marred and scratched over the years and not worth refinishing. I plan to paint it a matte/satin black. I don't know the species of wood. Any suggestions on primer (oil or waterborne)? I will either spray or brush with SW. Should I consider using flotrol? Thanks. Igneous

You can't go wrong with oil... some water based primers could work but you should do an adhesion test 1st. Zinsser oil cover stain or BIN Shellac primer, either of those will work for sure.

Flotrol will slow down the drying of paint allowing it to level out and look more like a sprayed finish. If you have a sprayer and the knowledge then spray it, unless you like the look of a hand painted piece.

Good luck

Thanks for the speedy reply. I will look at Zinsser products and ask SW rep as well. The brush lines won't be a problem. It is kind of nice if they're not too obvious.
