    You won't need to sand if you use a paint with primer in it. It comes out beautiful. Be sure to get "Satin".

I love this tip on how to paint an antique black look! Very easy to follow. Definitely going to be using this on our dining room furniture!

If you need your paint job to be durable, go with polycrylic. Polycrylic is great because it's durable like Polyurethane, but it doesn't yellow over time and it's really low-odor. To apply your polycrylic, just brush it on with a high quality paint brush. I did 2 coats, allowing it to dry for several hours in between.
