People ask me all the time whether I use spray paint, a brush or a professional sprayer for my furniture redos and the truth is, all three. Sometimes nothing beats the look of a brushed piece, other times, especially for a smooth sleek look, only the sprayer will do. But that doesn’t dilute my love of spray paint. And I’ve tried it all.
I used Valspar on this project which I like because you can recoat in just 5 mins. Crazy, right?! The only problem is the finish takes forever to cure. It’s at least a couple of weeks until I’m comfortable putting a project that I’ve used this paint on to use.
I used Rustoleum on this project and it’s great. It does take longer to dry than Krylon but it’s my go-to paint for metallic like this Oil Rubbed Bronze. The drying time can definitely be a problem unless you’ve got a protected place to spray paint. And let’s be honest, how many of us do?? So using this on a windy day isn’t the way to go.
Which brings me to my first love….Krylon.
Our dining chairs was the first big project I did with Krylon. Dries fast. Comes in lots of great colors. Did I mention it dries FAST?
Our dining room chandelier was also done using Krylon.
And pretty much EVERYTHING at this party, which can be found right here on my other blog, was done using Krylon.
So. The moral of this story is, I don’t always use spray paint but when I do, I use Krylon.
**I wasn’t paid, sponsored or compensated in anyway by any of the aforementioned companies. But I totally could be. I’m easy like that. Hear me KRYLON???**
