A couple of weeks ago, I ran down to the Depot and
After I purchased the sander, I decided to refinish my stools that belly up to the kitchen bar...the wood finish wasn't bad, but I wanted a darker finish because they visually sat in my living room where I have a combination of black and cherry.
I took the advice of my many DIY Diva blog pals and decided to spray paint the stools. (Specifically, I watched Jenny Garland's tutorial, which was SUPER helpful!) After I sanded the first one, I wiped it down, then used a spray primer. I didn't expect my hand to be so sore after one coat of primer...but then I found THIS GENIUS CONTRAPTION! This $5 piece of plastic is somebody's gold mine and I wish it was mine!!!! It made painting SOOOOO easy!
UPDATED!!! I've decided to give away TWO of these bad boys!!! In order to be considered, just comment on my blog and become a blog follower and you just might be the lucky recipient of a spray paint gun!!!I love my new tools because they took my stools (nice rhyme, huh?!) from drab to FAB!!! What do you think? Big improvement, huh?!?!?!?!
Updated: I'm sharing this post with my friends over at Trash to Treasure Tuesday...because instead of getting new stools, I just updated the ones I didn't like anymore!!! Have you had success with repurposing? If so, share it with me!!!
