About two years ago, I found a great little metal "teacart" at a garage sale. Score! At the time, it was lovely and not rusty. But, abuse on our part in using it outside had taken the shine on the poor cart. If I used it as I often did for big parties and such, I covered it with a tablecloth.
Yesterday, I decided it was time for a change. I figured if chalk paint didn't work (remember no priming or sanding)...then later I would spray paint it.
But, spray painting something is more complicated. It requires moving cars...setting up the spray station and of course getting the spray paint in the color of your choice.
Or....you can go into the garage, where my chalk paint is nicely stored, pick the color of choice, set up a drop cloth, grab a paintbrush and sit down and enjoy yourself. No fumes, no fuss.....
So, yup. that is what I did!
So, sweet Hubby, who was keeping me company, took two shots with his phone, realizing I had forgotten the "before"...
So, here I am, painting. I of course wiped it clean, but just went right over the rust. Like I said. The rust may find its way to the top again (it does with other paint), but why not have fun, right?
I painted it Duck Egg Blue (no wax as it will primarily be used outside, at least in summer).
What kind of things do you do on a whim??
