Spray Painting Furniture (Revisited)

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Every DIYer knows paint has the power to transform anything. Spray paint happens to be one of my favorite tools especially on small pieces of decor, but it can work really well on furniture too. A few years ago I wrote about spray painting furniture, and most of my tips are there, and today I wanted to share two pieces I recently finished, the first is a set of chests spray painted gloss black and the second is a console table spray painted white with gold detail.

Spray Paint Sprucing + The Squad!

Monday, June 25th, 2012

This weekend, I decided to tackle one of the 2012 Home Goals I set a few months ago, one of which is to pull together a conversation area on our balcony that overlooks the yard.  Sadly, it’s sat there empty and neglected for too many years and I’m finally in the process of creating a conversation zone up there.  Instead of a new purchase, I decided to be cheap and spruce up a set of old furniture that I already have to work with what I got!

Look for a bunch of projects in the coming months with the stuff I find on the shelves of my local store. 

Yesterday, I headed down to my local True Value to grab some outdoor metallic spray paint I’ve used in the past, Rust-Oleum makes a great version for outdoor furniture in oil rubbed bronze.

If you’re looking to spruce up your old set, I’m tellin ya, spray paint is the way to go!   I spray painted all of my outdoor furniture five years ago, and it’s held up well, but this particular set was in special need of some touch up love.
