Today just a short post about the wonders of spray paint. I know that a lot of bloggers get uppity about only using chalk paint or other fancy paints. But there are times when spray paint is a good option. In this quick-over I will show you how Rustoleum spray paint Satin Heirloom White transformed a dated plant stand.
This plant stand was found in a garage at an estate sale. I actually passed it by as it is not something I would normally buy.
My best friend urged me to buy it and transform it. It was either $1 or 50¢, I can’t remember now. LOL! So I reluctantly bought it, partly just to satisfy her.
I took it home and put it away and thought, it is so ugly. The bottom board was crooked and it was just not my style.
The wood was stained and orange color. I knew no buyer would like it.
It had the fake verdigris look – gold highlights on the green.
As I was thinking about it, I kept thinking, ugh, I don’t want to paint it. Then I thought what about using Rustoleum Heirloom White in satin finish. That is my go-to spray paint for things that have lots of crevices. It is a very nice white color. Not off-white but not bright white either. Now I choose Rustoleum spray paint as I don’t have paint runs like I do with other brands.
So I straightened the bottom board. It was just wired on and it took just a little adjustment.
The quick-over turned out great with just 2 light coats of Rustoleum spray paint.
Now I forgot to take photos when I was done. The only after photo is the one I took in my booth.
This plant stand lasted one day in the booth. So thank you dear best friend for talking me into buying it. It sold for $22.50 which is not bad for just a little work!
Would you have done a quick-over with spray paint on this stand or would you have left it the way I found it?
Wishing each of you a great journey in your hunt for vintage junk treasures and make sure to have fun along the way! Remember you are making memories!
Wishing you many blessings in 2017.
