Once there was a very Sad Little Experiment. Since the Experiment failed, it was hidden away in the darkest corner of the house, left to fend for itself. There, it came in contact with many a cruel twist of fate. Glasses with drips, plates with sloppy eaters, bumps, scrapes, dust, grime and not a bit of love.
But one day, an Idea came to town. And there, on the Sad Little Experiment the Idea came to rest. But it was not just any Idea – it was a Whimsical Idea. The best and most coveted Idea of all time. It came with spray paint. GOLD spray paint. Lacquered WHITE spray paint.
Because of it’s special Whimsical capabilities, just spraying the top or the legs of the experiment never entered the Idea’s creative mind. Instead, golden goodness and glossy white came to rule. And it did. And the Kingdom rejoiced.
Here’s how it played out:I used Rustoleum Gold metallic spray paint and White Lacquered spray paint (from Home Depot, naturally). I propped up the feet on the side I was painting.That way you get every nook and cranny. (what exactly are crannies?) Paint one side – you don’t need to use spray paint if you have other paint around. Use what you have!! And peel off the tape.
Here’s one of my favourite tricks. When the first side is solid in colour and very, very dry, use repositional spray glue and wax paper. Spray just the straight edge of the wax paper and line it up exactly on the white paint edge. Rub down lightly to make sure there’s no lifting. This way the overspray will not seep under. Spray your next colour as many coats as you need and remove wax paper before last coat dries.
All dressed up and ready for Royalty!
