Spray paint afternoon

Some of the lil knick knacks I've been collecting from various garage sales and thrift stores finally got a much needed makeover today. After seeing everyone else transforming ugly stuff into treasures using spray paint I figured it was time to get over my spray paint virginity!

It started with a lil make shift workspace in the backyard. After that I lightly sanded each piece then cleaned all pieces. Then I went to town with the primer, a light coat on everything. What's great about this primer is it was dry in less than 5 minutes (probaby would take longer if you were spraying inside).

After 1 coat of white. I did a few light coats on each
(don't forget to let it dry completely between each coat)

Final outcome
This is the first time I ever spray painted anything. It was so much fun!
Not everything came out looking perfect. There's a few pieces that have some small runs and lil imprefections but oh well, practice makes perfect. Now I just need to find more things to spray!


The paint bug has officially bit me, I can't wait to paint something else!!
