Layering Paint onto furniture has become the latest rage! I've shared several different furniture makeovers explaining how to paint furniture in different paint layers. They've become so popular that I decided to create another furniture refinishing resource page dedicated to layering paint techniques so that you can find all of them quickly and easily!

The following layering paint techniques and tutorials will help you learn how to layer and blend multiple paint colors together so you can achieve a one of a kind finish for your furniture!

Just think! You are on your way to turning your old and boring furniture into something that people will stop, drop their jaw and drool over!

Here are some of the basic paint layering supplies that I use to create a beautiful layered finish:

  • Small Artist Brushes -for getting into the details of a furniture piece and for highlighting detailed areas. These are really high quality brushes at a great price!
  • Paint Brushes- I prefer a little stiffer brush when I'm layering paint because it helps me have a little more control over my brushing.
