Many of us have old furniture which doesn’t quite fit with the rest of our interiors. But, rather than the costly pursuit of buying new, why not give transforming it a go with spray paint?
We gave this dated magazine rack a whole new look and feel in just one weekend.
For this project we used Rust-Oleum Surface Primer to get started. As the magazine rack was very old, it may have varnishes or other contaminates on the surface which may effect the finish of the paint. This primer is ideal for painted wood, it avoids the need for sanding and provides a superior adhesion for the application of spray paint.
We followed this up with two coats of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Purple Gloss waiting eight hours in between coats to ensure it was fully dry. The rich, purple gloss is elegant, calming and perfect for a quiet corner of the living room.
