Several weeks ago I decided I would strip down, prime, and spray paint our old kitchen table and chair set. Everything I read said spray painting old furniture was a great way of re-furbishing. Well, either I'm not super handy in the area of furniture re-finishing or, all the so-called experts were wrong. This project took much longer, twice as much paint and primer, and I ended up having to put a top-coat over the paint in the end, which all the experts claimed I would not need. The set looks better than it did before I tackled the project, but there are drips of top coat and the paint is uneven and slightly bumpy in spots. Sigh. Well, now I know, re-finishing furniture is not my thing. Thankfully, the set looks nice enough to use for several more years and then I can invest in a nicer set.
