My Favorite Products for Prep:
Prep work... Bleh! Everyone hates it but you must prep if you want a quality finish that will last.
Hey look! It's me! My name is Kristen! Hi!
My go to primer is Wise Owl Primer! Here's why:
Blocks stains and bleedthrough
It's water based and has low VOCs
It comes in 4 different colors
It will cling to slick surfaces like granite or laminate.
I highly suggest using primer for your project if your surface is slick (excluding glass, chalk synthesis paint would cling better) or if your finish will be a light color.
I also love...
This is a brand new product, but I was instantly in love! Prepper Spray is an all natural and degreaser from Good Bones Paint. It works incredible against grease, grime, stains and sticky residue... and the added bonuses: it smells like oranges and once your out of the cleaner you then
have a really cool amber glass spray bottle to repurpose!
I have used it to remove stripper that had been sitting on there for weeks because I just didn't want to deal with it anymore. It removed all residue! I was really impressed.
