I bought a very used old crappy desk that I would like to paint as an easy way to make it a little nicer. My last desk that I painted went poorly as the paint started peeling off almost immediately. I was told to get “Zinsser 1-2-3 primer” followed up by a latex paint. This apparently was not the right way to go.
I do not want to spend the time sanding all of the original finish off as the desk just is not worth the time. Is there a paint product that I can use that will effectively stick to a finished surface as well as the laminate top? The original finish I am guessing was some sort of penetrating finish as there is no film.
My best guess is that an enamel would be more likely to form a shell and be a more permanent covering.
Thanks for any info. As you can probably tell, I do not know much about paint.
