Have you ever seen those beautiful furniture pieces with swirls of colorful paint and wished you could create something similar? Well, good news! With a little bit of prep work, the right supplies, my insider tips and perfect pour tricks, anyone can achieve the perfect paint pour on furniture.
After watching acrylic paint pours on canvas and completing a few paint pours on furniture, I have discovered the best way to achieve a perfect paint pour on furniture. It is important to use the right type of paint for this type of finish because not all paints can achieve perfect results.
This painting technique is perfect to use on plain furniture pieces that need more detail. Or for furniture that has a lot of flaws.
This 3 drawer dresser had veneer pulling off the bottom drawer. After removing the veneer the bottom drawer had a different finish from the other drawers. This made it the perfect candidate for paint pouring to cover up the imperfections on the bottom drawer.
