Do you have rattan tables that need to be painted and no paint sprayer? Well, today I will show you how to paint rattan tables without a paint sprayer. It is all in the paint you use.
Now I do have a sprayer and was planning on using it for this project. I had my heart set on a certain color for the tables. That meant I needed to buy paint. And there is one thing I don’t need is to buy more paint. It hit me. I had the perfect color paint already and it is perfect for this particular project.
Participating in the Fab Furniture Flipping© contest one month we used Velvet Finishes by Kellie Smith. It dawned on me that this is the perfect paint to use on the rattan tables if I wasn’t going to use the paint sprayer. How perfect to already have the color I wanted.
The tables had been sitting in my garage way too long. I was actually using them as shelves. To really clean off all of the dust I hosed down the tables and let them dry in the sun. I had to do some minor furniture repairs. Just gluing on furniture buttons and filling in a spot.
And I did have everything to do this project. I glued in the buttons and filled in a spot on the leg. To prep, spray the table with a product called Ready. It is just as it says. The piece is clean and ready for paint.
Paint it I did. I tipped it upside down and right side up. It didn’t matter how my brush strokes went and they went every which way to get into all of the nooks and crannies. You would think in such a haphazard fashion would be a disaster. And, I repeated the process on the other table for a matching set.
Protecting a paint job is important. After all look at all of the work you did. There is the perfect product for that called Protect. It is brushed on and gives the piece a nice subtle sheen.
That is the story of how to paint rattan tables without a paint sprayer. It is all about the product used for the effect you want to get. And the tables turned out exactly as I imagined they would.
