The best paint for furniture, especially in the kitchen, is non-toxic acrylic. You'll also want to choose a satin or semi-gloss finish. Applying this may take a little extra work to prep, but you're guaranteed to have a beautiful finished product.

HOW TO PAINT FURNITURE
- Step 1: Prep, prep, prep! First, prep your piece of furniture.

- Step 3: Prime. After your furniture is dry and dust-free, paint on some primer.
- Step 4: Sand Again.
- Step 5: Paint.
What is the best finish for a dining room table?
Varnish and oil-based poly finishes are the most durable. Tung oil and linseed oil are relatively durable. In general, it's best to stay away from shellac. Lacquer can be tough, but it tends to take on a yellow color as time goes by.
