SO, all the blogs I follow are talking about spray painted left and right. I have so many things I want to spray paint but I'm scared that it will look dumb! LOL I have lamps, a desk, 3 dressers, a side table, some vases, and some chairs. SO, I'm trying to see who has spray painted any home furnishes or furniture... =D Pictures would be awesome if you have any! THANKS!!Answer Question

I spray painted my twins dressers. For a big job like that I recommend getting the plastic "gun" attachments for the spray cans to keep your finger from going numb.
I spray painted a mantle shelf, a fireplace screen, a small table, the grill, and I'm sure other things I am forgetting. My grandmother used to spray paint all kinds of things. It's especially good for livening up old or worn items.
Sorry, no pics.

Tips for wooden furniture: clean really well, remove any metal hinges and any knobs you don't want to paint, sand lightly, fill any holes with wood filler, sand excess wood filler when dry, wipe with a damp dust cloth to remove any loose dust from sanding, lightly cover with spray on primer, and then paint allowing drying time between layers. You might also want to practice a bit on the backside or bottom before you paint the front and top, and always spray a few test sprays when you start a new can. Oh, yeah - paint outside or in an open garage!
