I cleaned it, but did not sand as recommended. I used Rust-oleum Gloss Painters Touch in Real Orange. My hubby recommended I grab a snap on spray nozzle to make it easier on my hand. It is also by Rustoleum.
I sprayed the underside first, let it dry, flipped it over and did several light coats waiting about 20 minutes between each coat.
Then I applied Krylon Glitter Blast in Orange Burst. I did several light coats of it also. I love the glitter accents, though it is a little pricey, I wouldn't have liked the end results nearly as much without it.
You really can't tell that it is all that glittery in the photo, but I really love it. It was an easy updo and I kept a memory filled object but gave it a great makeover.
I have always found spray paint intimidating. My past experiences always had runny spots. I did not have any trouble with runs at all. So, grab something ugly and give it a fun makeover this week. Share it with me, won't you please? Now, go be crafty.
