Does anyone know what kind of paint to use on the IKEA LACK series - made of paricle board, fiberboard, ABS plastic, etc??
Also, what kind of paint should I use on Beech wood?
Hi Deborah, There is a great book at Canadian Tire that shows how to paint melamine surfaces. The primer is very important as it will adhere to the surface and the paint with stick to it. Same goes for any wood surface. Stain is different. Lynn Houston
Primer is not required when using melamine paint. You must make sure it is cleaned & scuff sanded. Scuff snading help any paint to stick. You can prime due to color but melamine paint is for melamine. sticks to anything as well. As it cures it hardens but is oil.
Go to Benjamin Moore paint store and ask them for Alkyd Paint and primer. Make sure sand the furniture lightly to make the surface rough. Apply two thin coats.
