Try This – Paint It

This month, my “Try This” posts are going to highlight some things you can do with thrift store finds. 

One of my favorite things to do is just paint what I find.

The first step is to clean the piece(s) and apply primer.

Primer comes in different colors.  I use white if I’m using light paint colors and grey if I’m using mid or dark paint colors.

I love Martha Stewart High Gloss paints.  They have a thick consistency and offer good coverage.

I painted this set in sea glass colors.

I painted this set in fun bright colors.

About the photo (taken August 8) …I admit it; I love to learn, and I have a weakness for “self-help” books.
