On July 15, 2017, Susan Donnelly of O’ Fallon MO. participated in a St Louis premier furniture spray painting class. In the same week after taking the class, Susan painted her dining room table and chairs to a two color flawless makeover.

So let me start by saying “I am so not a great DIY person but I am trying and I REALLY wanted to learn how to do this and make some changes in our new house myself. When we moved into our new house, the dining room table and chairs matched the hardwood looking laminate floor. Like it seriously blended in! I didn’t want to put down a rug underneath so I had to change up the table and I wanted to paint it.”
I found Redposie when I was searching online for resale shops in the O’Fallon MO. area.
Redposie host furniture spray painting classes at a cute little house in the city of St. Charles (431 McDonough Street)
When I stopped in to check it out I found out about the furniture spray painting class and got online and signed up right away. Redposie was super helpful in the painting spray class and answered most all our questions before we even asked them. We got to try the sprayer out and he gave tips on how to adjust our form to get the paint to cover evenly without having tons of bare spots. I left the class full of spit and vinegar and ready to tackle my table and chairs.
This set has six chairs and a bench seat. First I very lightly sanded down everything just to knock off some of the shine then I wiped down everything using the surface prep, just to get it completed clean and degreased. I had no problem putting up my spray shelter in my garage and left the garage door open to ventilate.
I decided to spray four of the chairs first in the Dixie Bell “Drop Cloth”.
Once I had those done I went ahead and sprayed the legs of the table and bench seat.
With everything done, I poured the remaining paint back into the container and completely washed the sprayer and took a lunch break. I came back and started in on the Dixie Bell “Hurricane Gray” for the table top, seat of the bench and two chairs.
Take a tip from me – Do Your Top First
In hindsight, I should have done the gray tops first because even though I covered the legs a bit, there was still some overspray and I had to touch up the legs. Once I poured the gray back into the container and cleaned the sprayer, I gave everything a coat of Polyvine “Dead Flat” finish and did the table top twice.
I was soooo pleased with how everything turned out that I’m already off to the next project!!! What a wonderful furniture spray painting Class!
