I'm trying to decide if my wife and I should buy some furniture new or buy an old piece and repaint it.
It's basically a large dresser + hutch (made of MDF) and is currently dark brown (we want to paint it white). From my understanding, we really only need to put primer over it (sanding appears to be optional but if we do must be very light) and then repaint it.
I'm a bit nervous because we haven't ever repainted anything but the price difference is ~1000.
Our main concern is whether or not it will look good but also, if the item is scratched, will the dark brown show through the white?
