What advice would you give someone starting this project? prep is the key to a good make over. Take time to sand and clean before any priming or painting takes place. And pace yourself no need to get in a hurry, just take your time. You will make less mistakes that way.

I have found that it is the prep work that determines the success of the paint. On the really old furniture, I really work hard on the cleaning of the grime off (with a TSP wash) and then a good overall sanding to prepare for the primer. Also the longer I have waited between coats of paint the more resilient the finish seems to be.
