Hello Everyone! Happy wet Thursday to you all from the Mile High city... or there abouts. I have a quick and easy little project that I wanted to show you. I re-painted a little side table I found at a thrift store a few years ago. This time I used spray paint in a color we're highlighting in my girls' room. Man, I love spray paint. Little finds can be transformed in a few minutes for a few bucks! I think I'm going to have to a section just for spray painting items on this blog.
I love having a pop of color like this, but look at the before picture below. I paid half price for the table so it was just $1.50. It wasn't perfect, but seriously whose going to complain for a dollar fifty.
Then I painted it like this. Why did I think this was cute???? Ugh. But you can read what I was thinking in this post.
So my girls decided they don't want a yellow and grey room anymore. They are liking the coral and turquoise combos. Love that color combo, too. To get a move in that color direction, I decided to repaint this table.
I started out by lightly sanding the piece with 100 grit sand paper. It was just enough for the primer to cover over the grey and yellow dots.
Then just a simple coat of spray primer ...
I love the white already, but she wasn't finished.
The first time I painted this piece I used a brush and paint from a can. This time, to minimize the brush strokes and save mucho time and aggravation, I decided to just spray paint.
Best decision! I used the Aqua color from Rust-Oleum. Love it.
Love, love, love the results and so do my girls! It will be going to their room now, but just for this post I wanted to show you how pretty it looks holding my birthday flowers from Mr. Lewisville. I celebrated being 41 this last Saturday. So blessed and thankful for my Lewisville life.
So do you love spray paint, too?
