Pretty sad looking huh? But not bad. It is a solid piece made of real wood, imagine that? Anywho it was totally free from feecycle.org.
I love FREECYCLE!!
So I had never spray painted furniture before and I tell ya it's an art. After putting on a dust mask and putting down a drop cloth I went to work in my garage (with the door open mind you). I needed plenty of ventilation. So I used Rustoleum's Heirloom White in Satin finish. And. I. Love.It.
The color is so pretty and soft. It will go nicely with my new bedding that I've had my eye on for the last month. I am planning on painting my bedroom and removing the awful wallpaper that's there UGGGH Who invented wallpaper???
So, here's the after:
Isn't it cute?!
Total cost $13.50 for spray paint and sanding paper. Now I do admit I need to work on my spray painting skills a bit more. Wait 'till I show you my other projects. Now I am so excited I want to try spray painting with a spray gun and a compressor!! CRAZYNESS!! But I've got to remind myself.... baby steps.....
(after uploading the pic, I noticed that I need a little more paint touch ups inside, oopsies, but that's ok, just pretend it's perfect)
Up next.. this chair~
(antique chair that I've had for about 13 years)
Seriously, if you guys have not joined freecycle.org in your neighborhood, I STRONGLY suggest you do so!!
