Spray Paint and Stain
I've had this tiered basket tray for quite sometime, and a while back I sprayed it white. That just never seemed to go, so it was time for a change.
I was out of ORB, so I grabbed the can of black and gave it a quick coat. Not sure if this is what I wanted or not. I may have to redo it. When it is dry, we will see.
As usual I forgot to take a before picture. This was a teal and white pitcher that I've had for quite a while. It didn't go with anything I had, so I got out my bright yellow spray paint and gave it a coat.
Next I sponged some dark walnut stain on and then wiped it off quickly leaving it in all the lines. It turned out with a checker board look. Kind of fun.
After that dried I gave it a couple coats of Crystal Clear for some shine.
Of course I had to play when it was all dry. It has a really old look to it. Kind of a dirty mustard color.
I never know what something is going to look like, but if I don't like it, I can just paint it again.
I put it in the island vignette for now. Different for a change. I love old pitchers and jars, so I like the look since it looks old.
Fun day just playing. I am going to have my granddaughter here for a few days so I will be visiting and running around with her. I will check in when I can. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
