Painting Old Furniture

My husband owned this end table for a few years before we got married. It had been in our bedroom covered up with a sheet, and we mostly used it as a junk drawer. I got tired of seeing it in a corner collecting dust, so I decided to spruce it up and paint it.

I used spray paint instead of hand painting the table because I’m pretty impatient when it comes to waiting for things to dry. I bought Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze Paint + Primer (I used two cans) and Krylon Looking Glass Paint from Walmart.

I cleaned the end table with a warm, wet towel before I began painting the table in my backyard. I also removed the handle because I was painting it with the Looking Glass paint.

Krylon spray paints dry very quickly. I let each coat dry about 20 minutes before I started painting again. Then I screwed the handle back onto the drawer. I’m very pleased with how the table turned out. I love the Blue Ocean Breeze color, and I plan on using it for future projects.
