The Spray Painting Continues
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
I picked this set of lockers up at a garage sale for $3 a few weeks ago. (I thought about taking pictures of it after I had laid it down to power wash it and was too lazy to pick it up for the picture.) They had been painted off white with lots of wear and some drips-- so time to repaint.
I chose a hammered metal spray paint and I really like how they turned out! It took two cans of primer and two cans of the hammered metal paint to cover it and the inside is only lightly coated. Oh well, "good enough for who it's for..." ( a saying from my brother when we built our house!) These are in our basement now and I will probably move them to the storage room. When I can get in the storage room that is.
My recommendation if you are going to spray paint a lot--as in 4 cans of paint on one project--or if you have to go somewhere where it will look tacky for your index finger to be tipped in gray--is to get one of these spay can adapters. My husband thought I should try this, worth the $2.50 for it he thought. He was right. Wow, what a relief for your finger and hand! It just pops on the can and you are spraying with ease. It really looks like it should hold up for possibly years of use too.
