Step 1: Clean the Surface
The first step is to remove all the layers of paint, varnish or dirt on the furniture, until the wood is left natural. To do this, you can use coarse sandpaper or an electric sander if the furniture is large. Be careful not to damage the wood and to follow the direction of the grain.
Step 2: Repair the damage
If the furniture has any bumps, holes or broken parts, they need to be fixed before painting. You can use wood filler, glue, or nails, depending on the case. If you have to replace a piece, make sure it is the same type and color of wood as the rest of the furniture.
Step 3: Apply your chosen coating: Tcolors Colorless Varnish or Chalk Paint Tcolors
Now comes the fun part: choosing the finish you want to give your furniture. You can opt for Tcolors Colorless Varnish, which will protect the wood and give it a natural and elegant look, as in this video from KelekHome:
