I'm about to update an old dining room buffet. The piece is solid oak with a 'speckly' finish and I'm planning to repaint it a soft blue-green (BM Woodlawn Blue or Palladian Blue). I'm also planning to add crystal knobs and will need to patch the holes where the old pulls were removed.
Any tips for this paint job? I've combed through some older posts and found some comments re sanding vs priming, but thought I'd check if anyone has done something recently and has any pointers or advice on new products that might be available, or just general advice!
