Rust-Oleum Furniture Paint - A Transformation

It's been so long since I've blogged. Life just got in the way. Nothing major, just didn't seem to have enough hours in the day to get a blog post in. Until now.

I bought this piece in a thrift shop with a view to doing something fabulous with it....I had seen different projects using Rust-Oleum Furniture Paint and knew that I had to try it for myself.





We're redecorating the living room to incorporate a dark teal as an accent piece. I didn't want anything too strong so we have a few pillows, a lamp and a throw to bring in the colour.

I really don't like mahogany. Especially the cheap looking faux-mahogany. BUT I did like the hinged door and the shape was perfect for the living room.

I don't know how I narrowed my choice down - just look at all of the colours Rust-Oleum have available.


Finally, I settled on Graphite for the outside and Belgrave to bring in the teal I wanted (for the inside).





First off I went to prep for painting. Pulled out the palm sander and got ready for dust everywhere. (and a little refreshment)



Here's the thing......I didn't need to. Yup, you heard me. NO PREP NEEDED. I wiped it down and then got to work. 

2 coats!!! Thats it.




It went on so smooth and its thick enough to hide any sins you want covered up.

Belgrave is a beautiful colour....




It dried so quickly and with no drips or bumps.

Next it was all about sealing it with the wax. Now, I have to be honest, I've seen a lot of chalky finish paints and I was never too thrilled with the finish. I appreciate that they have a chalk finish but I need a little shine...I don't like too much of the matte look.





This Rust-Oleum paint had a hint of that a little too matte finish until the wax went on....Holy transformation! I rubbed the wax on and went to bed. I woke up the next morning and it was like a whole other piece of furniture. The finish was gorgeous and the texture to the colour was just what I wanted.




I think its a great change!
