In two weeks I will be living large in 655 square feet of my very own. So my recent weekends have been spent shopping for the goods. Furniture, cookware, bedding etc. However, I am all about the freebies....and these babies are throw-backs from my childhood.
Here's the deal. I'm twenty-two. This is my first time living on my own and I have no idea what in tarnation I'm doing when it comes to tutorials. But I repainted these green monsters and I'm gonna show you how to do it Emilie-Janky-Town Style.
Note: you probably should find people who actually know what they're doing if you ever are going to do this and you want your to turn out nice. I however, just tend to go for things. Some call this foolishness.....let's call it valiance.
The first step is to stare at the spray paint aisle, Instagram, stare some more, and decide on a color. You shouldn't be like me and spray a little bit on the price tag to see if you reeeeally like it.
Sanding should occur next. Don't be like me and forget to wear gloves. Because then this happens...
Also. This is an example of how you probably shouldn't sand. I don't think the sand paper is supposed to look like this at the end.
Priming the chairs is important. But don't be like me and only get one can of primer....because you'll be angry later when it takes four cans of blue to cover. And you may react like this....
Then spray....one can
Two cans.....or toucans if you're feeling jolly
And four cans later I had the finished project. Don't be like me, buy a quart of paint....it's cheaper.
They did turn out pretty fly for some blue guys if I do say so myself.
But really. Don't be like me.
Because then you make weird faces like this when you're finished.
