During the trip to Builder's Surplus that resulted in our new vessel sink, mom picked up a new vanity for the half bath. Only problem was that it was white and she wanted a darker base. With a little advice from her friend Mary Ann and the Home Depot guy, we opted to spray paint the base.
Sounds easy enough, but with that thin plastic coating on top and the notorious Texas heat we were in for a battle. The first round was going along just fine until we realized that the two cans were not going to cut it. Mom made a mad dash to Home Depot before it closed just to find out that that location was all out. Determined to finish that night, she headed over to Wal Mart to pick up a couple of cans. Same brand, but not the same easy to use can which ended with sore fingers. Nonetheless we finished up and let it dry overnight.
The next day we figured that the doors were dry enough so that we could turn them over, spray them and leave them to dry again overnight. Sadly something happened overnight with the heat and when we went to pick them up in the morning, the front panels (first painted) stuck to the drop cloth and peeled off some of the paint.
You live and you learn. We did the best we could to just spray a couple more layers to cover it up and let it dry inside.
It may not have been the best experience with spray paint, but in the end we got it done. Have you had any issues with painting?
