It is quite possible to paint lacquered furniture. Here is the best way of doing so. First you need to prime the surface of the furniture before repainting it. It is highly recommended to use a sprayer rather than using paint and a brush as spraying will give a smooth lacquered finish and it will be done much faster. There are hundreds of primer colours available in the market. White is the most standard colour. You can also try out other colours such as green apple and meringue yellow. You can also use melamine paint for painting lacquered furniture. Melamine paint offers durability.
