she missed the mark…just a bit.
As you can see, she painted over the hardware too.
Sand the entire piece and fill in any nicks with wood filler.
Prime. Lightly sand after it is dry using a 3M Sanding Sponge, Fine Grit to remove any bumps and bugs. (I prime with spray paint out on the front lawn and bugs love my work!). Prime again if needed.
Spray paint the entire piece with your base color if you want to distress the piece and have a particular color in mind that you want to show through. This is quick and easy. I used Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Spray Paint, Ivory Bisque. Lightly sand after each coat to keep the surface smooth.
What do you think? Was this piece worth the effort?
