Grey over Gray

For my first table job, I think this went pretty well. I bought a brass colored spray for the feet rather than getting a gold or silver. The originals are brass so I thought I would keep it the same. I just might change it still. I think a silver would be HOT.

Now I must add that I used this spray attachment and it is the DAMN BOMB! It felt like I was using a professional sprayer. PLEASE BUY ONE. Its only like $2.50. I dont think I would have achieved the smooth finish without it. Jenny mentioned it on her blog, and I followed. Look what she spray painted with it below...I think I found something else I love to do. Just no room for it all.

Before/After

FAB job huh? I could not believe she did that with spray paint. But like I said, that sprayer changes the game.

Looks great! Are the attachments available where you purchase spray paint? I'd loved to get one.

Tami said...

Great job on the table. I'm so glad to hear about the attachment b/c when I spray paint it is a mess and hard to achieve a smooth finish. I have tons of stuff to spray paint as I remodel. Did you get it at Home Depot or Lowes?

I saw that sprayer on Jenny's, too and bought one for my big buffet (but of course I haven't built up the courage to use).
BTW - I see you w/ your new J. Crack purse on the table.

Great job! Now I have inspiration for my table that is similar to yours

Tamstyles said...

hey yall...i bought mine at walmart. it was hanging on the end of the isle. not sitting on a shelf or anything..

Dayka said...

Love the blue you chose. How do you like the Valspar spray paint? I saw that yesterday in Lowe's and was wondering if it was any good. Also, how did the feet turn out? I didn't get a good look and have wondered what to do with tarnished feet. I'm going to have to get one of those spray guns--I was always worried about keeping the finish even using spray paint, but I guess the gun takes care of that problem. Wish I would've known that before I did this sideboard the hard way!

Tamstyles said...

Dayka the valspar is by far my favorite spray paint. i have tried others from home depot and didnt like them as well...the sprayer makes its so smooth and finish great. the feet are a prob. and i will prob fix them today...

Montanna Mitchem said...

Tam what an inspiration you are to me!!!! Because of this post I am going to see if i can find me a "thrift store find" (a DESK) what i would like to do is find a wood desk that i can spray paint and refurbish the glass top that i have (adding it on top).. wish me luck! OH.. and i must find me a fab "grupie" color... something bold.. will let you know how it turns out.
