Night Time Porch Painting…

Standard

…all the rage with the kids these days!

Time to get our antique tv a new paint job.

First, a trip to Lowe’s to grab some paint supplies:

     

Paint Primer

For a sponge effect with the second color

The paints: Sea Isle and French Riviera. Think we got the water tones nailed down.

Painting wood like this requires a base layer of primer. I used some white spray-on primer that’s good for all surfaces. Here’s the before and after:

Before

After: Ghostly White!

Then, I painted on two layers of “Sea Isle” and sponged on “French Riviera”. Better pics in the day time coming up soon!

At least one of us looks presentable...

  

After 2 coats...

Sponged!
