Good Morning, hope you all enjoyed a spring like weekend. We woke up to
a dusting of snow yesterday, luckily my lilacs weathered it fine,
because I had a plan for them!
I love this hidden pull out tray and bottom drawer.
Perfect for a beverage.
Rustoleum Protective Enamel - Gloss Black
Anita's Metallic Craft Paint Classic Gold
Purdy Paint Brush
Rustoleum Enamel - $10/quart - I used about 1/3
Anita's Metallic Paint - I had
Per Rustoleum instructions I gave it a light sand with 150 grit sand paper,
sprayed it down with water (squirt bottle) and dried.
I used 2 coats of Rustoleum Enamel, allowing 24 hours drying time between coats.
Dark paint going over a dark finish eliminated the 3rd coat I've done in the past.
Between coats I gave it a light sand with very fine 220 grit sand paper and wiped
it clean removing all particles.
After the second coat dried I used a child size paint brush for the gold details.
None! I do have a tip though, the black paint is much less forgiving than other
colors and will show every imperfection in your wood,
my piece was in good condition to begin with.
I mentioned it before, this paint makes me HAPPY!
If you haven't tried it and like a high gloss finish I highly
recommend you find something to paint...today!
