The Ultimate Supply List for Painting Furniture

The Ultimate Shopping Guide for Painting Furniture

After sharing post after post of painted furniture makeovers, a few home decor posts, personal posts and even a holiday gift guide I realized that the most simple thing that I have yet to share is a basic supply list. I’ve decided to put together an “everything but the furniture supply list” or an “Every Girls Shopping Guide to Painting Furniture“.  Though I do realize that men paint furniture as well, so I suppose that wouldn’t be appropriate. But you get the idea. I have an arsenal of tools and supplies in my workshop and I will do my best to include as much as I can possibly think of. supply list, shopping guide, must haves, painting furniture


Though, not always necessary tools are a major part of the furniture painting business. Many pieces are old and in need of sanding or repairs. Here is a list of some of my most used tools as well as links to each.
