I pinned an idea on Pinterest for a turquoise blue table and I pinned DIY instructions for re-furbishing furniture by using only spray paint. Then, I put these two seemingly-great ideas together.
I followed the instructions… I sanded, primed, painted (and painted and painted and painted). The original “spray paint pinner” promised it would not look spray painted or streaky if you just used enough paint. I bought SIX cans and used all of them and it still looks streaky. Should I have bought and used SEVEN??
I also “distressed” the table and added a glossy coat to the top to finish it off. It still looks streaky.
(One a side note: The distressing worked well, but I am not sure you can miss trying to “wreck” something).
We need our kitchen table and I don’t have the energy to re-paint again this week, so we moved the table back inside the house.
I like this idea and I like the color (although, my family disagrees about the color).
When I do a similar project:
- I will use a paint brush and a can of paint (no more spray paint)
- I will use a satin paint and not glossy paint
Don’t believe the hype.
