Once upon a time I painted a beautiful pink dresser for my daughter. She helped me pick out the color and it was so perfectly princess even I was a little jealous. We moved it into her room, filled it up, and life was good. Less than a week later, the corners of the paint were peeling up, and within a few days, the princess dresser looked more like Cinderella’s shredded dress.
After a fair amount of research, I discovered three main reasons why paint doesn’t adhere, and how to prevent chipped paint.
