Step 3: We've tried numerous types of paint and primers over the past few years. We're presently using the Behr Ultra brand with paint and primer mixed together from Home Depot. Great paint! Wonderful coverage!! We highly recommend it. Most of the time , it takes one complete step out of the restoring process!In these pictures, we've got one coat of black satin( by far the most popular amongst our customers) on the base piece and all the drawer fronts. Doesn't it look good? After 24 hours, we'll assess whether it will need another coat or if it's"good to go"!
