I am painting a bare wood table and chairs for my son's room. I have primed it and was advised to use exterior gloss for tough finish. Trouble is I've done two coats of this on a small bit and it has a rather sticky finish, I can't imagine its going to be any good to lean a notebook on. I'm wondering whether this is because its specially made for outdoors. I intend to sand it down again and repaint with a satin paint. But I want a really bright red colour and am wondering if there are any special craft paints I should be using or just an ordinary dulux satinwood if I can get it in a bright red.
Can you help
