When the FedEx box arrived at the front door, I was eager to get to work. I put it together first to make sure that I had all the pieces and everything fit together. You never know when your furniture arrives in a box. Once assembled and satisfied, I was ready to start.
All I needed for this project was a good ole can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint......
....and a bottle of vinegar. I read somewhere that you can use vinegar to remove finger prints and other residues left on the surface. Some websites say to use spirits and some use a liquid deglosser, but I use vinegar. I think they all accomplish the same goal, which is to clean the surface so that spray paint bonds properly.
I set up in the garage using the cardboard that it came with.
Here is a close up of the color (antiqued black) before I started spray painting.
Once ready, I started the process of spray painting. I am not going to go into too much detail other than I spray painted 3 coats on each side. There are lots of nooks and crevices in a project like this. So the trick here is to be patient.
Once you have done 3 coats of spray paint, you got stop for at least 24 hours, let it cure, and then you can start again. It helps to rotate each individual piece on its side so you don't miss any spots.
After six days of spray painting I am excited to show you my new side table.
