I HATE brush-stroke marks. For painting furniture or cabinets-- add floetrol by sherwin williams to your paint when painting furniture or cabinets and it will take away all of those brush stroke marks and leave the paint smooth.
So I looked at this before spray painting some wooden picture frames and a few other items. I started sanding and hated it, so I just used primer and then painted. Hope it doesn't turn out like her coffee table.
