Posted on

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.

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!

With this unit you can change the spray tip set to adjust the flow of material. You can also select a fine or wide air cap nozzle that also controls the flow of material for the sprayer.

This allows you to use this sprayer for small detailed craft projects, furniture or large fences and decks. The sprayer comes with a 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm and 4.0 mm spray tip set.

The spray tip sets are changeable with the wrench tool, simply turn the tip counterclockwise to loosen the tip. Then use the other end of the tool to loosen the tip. Place the desired pin on the needle and then tighten or snug with included wrench tool. Then place the matching (tips and pins are color coded) spray tip on and tighten with the tool. The sprayer comes with the 2.0 mm spray tip set installed and fine air cap. Yellow Air Cap Nozzle = Wide spray pattern and is used for high production projects like large decks and fences.

My  Front Porch Saltwash Chalk Paint Chandelier Flower Holder

Posted on

I have this white metal chandelier, very plain looking that I had replaced with a ceiling fan, but I just couldn’t find it in myself to toss it. For the longest time, I didn’t know what to do with it. The chandelier hung in the garage for over a year.

To tell you the truth I didn’t know how I wanted to recycle it until I discovered on Pinterest some images of re-purposed chandeliers into hanging flower pots holders. My chandelier I thought was perfect as a Chandelier Flower Holder, It is really sturdy and could handle the weight of small clay pots fill with potting soil and some cute plants. I figured I had everything already Saltwash® and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®color Napoleonic Blue to create the fabulous textured worn outdoorsy look I wanted.

So here is that old chandelier recycled  and how to paint your own using a Saltwash & chalk paint®  mixSaltwash Chalk Paint Chandelier Flower Holder

Step 1: Prep the chandelier

Remove all bulbs, candle holders, and cut away all electrical wiring that may be showing. Clean with Surface Prep cleaner or TSP. Surface Prep comes in a spray bottle that makes it supper easy to use and it is wonderful for prepping surfaces so paint will adhere.

Step 2: Assemble flower pots on the Chandelier

I picked up 6 small clay pots at Micheal’s for $1.79 each. For mounting the pots on the chandelier, I was able to use the assembly that came from the chandelier but I did have to buy 6 Hex Nuts from Lowes.

Step 3: Mix saltwash in paint and apply as a basecoat on pots.

Mix SALTWASH into paint until mixture has a thick icing like consistency. Now apply the mix to pots using a chip brush. Be sure to apply using a glob like technique, pulling up the peaks of the mixture.

Step 4: Add a colorful top coat using a chalk paint

I used  Annie’s Napoleonic Blue but here is where you get to pick your own color. After your second coat dries lightly sand back to show the color of your base coat. Now add plants and you ready to hang the chandelier.
