When I left off last time (see Part 1 here) I had picked a paint color, hardware and paper for the top of the shoe cabinet. Over the weekend I took some Valspar Seaside Villa paint to it. I skipped the primer step because with the age of the piece I wanted the more of the antique and little less “crisp”. This isn’t the technique I’d use for everything but, for the most part, if you aren’t dead set on things being perfect (and nothing in our house is, it’s more well-loved and broken in) it works just fine, especially if you just use high quality paint. If we were painting a crisp, new piece I’d prime and then either roll or use a paint sprayer to spray it.
It still needs some work but it’s getting there.
Oh and also, we have this currently sitting in our backyard. I’ll give a cookie to whoever knows what we’re planning to do with these (and no, Emiley, it doesn’t count that we told you!)
Does anyone else have multiple projects going on at once like we do?
