Welcome Paint Lovers to this week’s Power of Paint Party… a party all about paint and only paint!
So… if you follow me on facebook or twitter you might have noticed that we’ve been hitting some storage auctions this summer. The kiddos love watching the shows with the Hubster. Well… last week we bought one! I’ll be sharing soon on all the goodies we got, but one of the items was a set of sun-faded red Adirondack chairs.
So, before trying to sell them (or keep them) I figured they needed a little sprucing up.
I decided to spray paint them with Krylon’s Fusion in Hammered Copper… but in my rush to get these babies painted (before it was too hot to step outside) I didn’t even think to prime them (DUH!). Learn by my example… when covering red… use primer. You’ll save yourself time, effort and you won’t need to use as much of the paint color you’re going for… which means saved $$$.
One full can and I didn’t even get one chair fully covered.
I do love the color… but I’m in need of another can or 2 of spray paint.
So what have you been painting?
Power of Paint Party Rules:
#1… This is a PAINT party… so pretty please, link-up only paint related projects.
#2… If you want to be considered for the Spotlight, you need to put my nifty POPP button (you can find it up in my menu bar’s BUTTONS) in your blog post… that way others from your blog can check out all the paint projects too.
#3… Share the Love… visit the other paint pals.
**** Don’t forget… submit your paint project to my other blog, Power of Paint, to have it featured there!!!
