Does that ever happen to anyone else? The color comes before the project? A little weird, but I went with it.
In my search around the house, I came across this old chair. I'm not exactly sure where it came from, but we've been using it as a replacement chair at our dining room table since one of our other chairs kept breaking. (High quality stuff we've got!). The only problem with it was the little crack (middle rung on the backrest), but oh well.....free and on hand....what could be better?
I found a great shade of red ~ Rustoleum Colonial Red in Satin ~ and went to work. Cleaned it and sanded it. The chair, as you can see, has one of the woven seats. Since I really didn't want to get paint on it I fixed it up with a little painter's tape and some Glad Press N Seal ~ which actually worked really well! I might have to start using it for my projects more often!!
The spray paint I used was Rustoleum's Ultra Cover (2x the coverage) and I was pleased at how well it went on. After it dried, I decided to distress it with some sandpaper....but then I didn't like how it looked. So I painted over the part I distressed, and for this chair, I was much happier with a non-distressed look. Here's the finished piece...
I love the fun pop of color it adds!
What is your favorite brand/shade of spraypaint? I'm always looking for great colors!
