After great results painting the metal garden wall planter I contacted RUST-OLEUM and asked if they would be interested in sending me their product for a few more makeovers.
RUST-OLEUM sent me 12 cans in two colors which I chose from their website.
Since I have a few things in need of a fresh coat of black paint I chose 2X Ultra Cover PAINT+PRIMER in Satin Canyon Black.
I also have a pine Adirondack chair with a matching pine table that I want to paint so I chose RUST-OLEUM’s brand new color called Ocean Mist in Gloss. They featured this color in a Adirondack chair makeover on their website and I was sold on it.
Some of you might remember when Hayneedle sent me a set of Adirondack chairs along with a matching table last year.
The set sat outside through four seasons so it was time for a fresh coat of paint.
The table is small and the legs collapse for easy storage. It has a lot of angles and hard-to-get-to-spots. However, it was easy to paint with a can of RUST-OLEUM.
I sanded the pine table first with a medium grit sand paper (100) for about 1/2 hour. (The above photo shows it sanded.) As with most projects, big and small, the majority of the time is spent doing the prep work, which of course has to be done properly for great results.
For my spray painting project I placed a large sheet of painter’s plastic on the ground in the backyard and in the shade.
I sprayed the first light coat of Ocean Mist; it’s better to do light coats rather than heavy coats. The goal is to prevent drips. A few minutes later I sprayed the second coat. For a nice solid coating on the pine table I needed three coats of paint. (Allow to dry for one hour before handling and allow 24 hours to dry completely.)
When sanding, don’t forget the edges, and since pine is soft wood, sand lightly.
Other than the imperfections in the wood, the spray painted table came out looking great.
It took two cans of RUST-OLEUM to paint the table with three coats.
This winter I’ll store the outdoor furniture in the shed.
Stay tuned for a few more RUST-OLEUM makeover projects including metal, wicker and terra-cotta. It also works on plastic.
Using RUST-OLEUM 2X is fun and easy with fast results. Thank you RUST-OLEUM for providing the paint for this project.
And remember, wear a mask while spraying paint!
