  • Wood is porous and must be sealed before you paint it. Apply a coat of aerosol primer to any wood surface, even if it is varnished. Sanding glossy or raw wood beforehand will result in a better finish with fewer coats.

RS paint pick: Kilz Odorless Aerosol Sealer-Primer (white only, about $5, and Krylon Interior-Exterior (62 colors, shown in Celery, $5.50 for store locations).

Also try: To simulate the look of metal on wooden objects, use Krylon Metallic Enamel Paint (17 colors, about $5, for store locations) or Rust-Oleum Clean Metal Primer (white only, $5,
