I just wanted to share my first foray into the world of spray paint since I’m so proud of myself. One of the only pieces of furniture I moved (besides my bed) was a bakers rack. It started out a funny speckled green color.
Since I had to take the dang thing totally apart to get it to fit in the trailer, I decided to take the opportunity to give it a facelift. I used a primer made for metal that’s already been painted, and a glossy black spraypaint. After taping every single space on my little porch over with a plastic dropcloth, I got to work. After two days of painting and a whole day of letting it dry and putting it back together, let me introduce you to my very first spraypainting beauty:
(forgive the not so great photography, I never claimed that was a skill of mine) 🙂
Also, since I had some paint leftover, I got to work on this little picture frame as well:
Now it’s a much better match for this long and skinny print I bought when I was studying abroad in India. I’m pretty happy with the results of my experimentation so far. Also, I thought I’d share this list of spray-painting tips first brought to my attention by a friend of mine (Thanks Britt!). It was helpful to have someone who does it a lot explain the basics (especially since I had no idea what I was doing).
