So am about to start my furniture painting. I bought some Ivy Leaf spray paint by Krylon and Krylons white primer. Wal-mart didn't have the Kilz that Brooke from All things thrifty recommends and since trying to get out of the apartment with a 8 month old and being 5 1/2 month pregnant is a chore hopefully I won't regret my choice.
Since I wasn't sure how that color would look out of the can and on something I experimented with a picture frame. Just not in the mood to redo a WHOLE desk if I like the color. The best part about this upcoming project is that it will probably cost me only $12-$15!
- Spray paint~ I'm estimating 3 can @ $2.97/ea = $9 basically
- Primer ~ 1 can $2.97
- Sealer for the top not even half a can ~ less than $1.50!
- Maybe if I feel ambitious I will line the drawers with paper ~$1-2
- Desk~ FREE!!! MIL gave it to me, because she didn't have a use for it but didn't want to throw it away. SCORE!
