Paint projects like a pro


Painted finishes give you a rainbow of options

Painted finishes give you a rainbow of options

When it comes to finishing oak, cherry, or maple projects, "paint" sounds like a dirty word. But for inexpensive, less attractive woods, such as pine, poplar, and aspen, a little cover-up can do wonders. Painted finishes give you a rainbow of options to complement your home's decor. Easy to maintain and repair, they stand up to direct sunlight far better than clear finishes, too.

For an attractive look, though, you'll need to paint with more finesse than what's required for walls, ceilings, or siding. For expert help on the subject, we sought out Jeff Jewitt of Cleveland, Ohio, who has authored four books and several videos on painting and finishing. Here, he demonstrates a surefire painting procedure that includes a coat of glaze for an aged look.
