Jitterbug Tallboy with Country Chic Paint

Friday, January 10, 2020

Happy Friday Everyone!  I hope everyone is as excited for the weekend as I am.  Except for tomorrow morning, I have to go to the DMV to change my name on my license #adulting.  BUT at I am excited to go hunt for some furniture to paint later today!

Facebook Marketplace has been pretty dry lately, same as the thrift stores, so I really hope I find something because my creative juices are flowing and I have a ton of pretty colors I want to use!

Okay enough rambling, lets get into this gorgeous teal tallboy makeover that I did with my new Homeright Paint Sprayer!

(The paint used in this post was so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!:))

JITTERBUG TALLBOY WTH COUNTRY CHIC PAINT


Products Used:

Jitterbug (& Behr Paint)

I picked up this piece at Goodwill for just $15!  It wasn't my favoriteeee piece but I wanted to test out my new paint sprayer that I got for Christmas so I didn't want to spend more on a piece in case I messed up!




I gave it a good clean and filled the existing holes in with some putty!  Then I drilled my new holes for my hardware and gave the whole piece a good scuff sand!

I also wrapped my drawers with pre taped painters plastic so prevent any overspray from getting in the drawers!



Next up I set up my paint sprayer and got to work.  This isn't going to be a tutorial on how to use the sprayer because I am still getting the hang of it, but just know, it was amazing to use!



I followed the instructions and poured my Country Chic Paint in the color Jitterbug into my sprayer and thinned it with a little bit of water.  I tested my spray pattern on a piece of wood to make sure it was all set and then got to work!  



I gave this piece two coats of paint. One of Jitterbug, and then I ran out of paint.... so I had to run over to Home Depot and get a color match for my paint.  I grabbed a quart of the color match (which was the perfect match) in a flat finish and came home and kept spraying.



I love the way the finish turned out with my sprayer!!

Then I applied my poly topcoat!  I tried to use my sprayer for it, but I messed up! I think I had to much coming out of my sprayer and I got major drips on the one side, ughhhhh.  So, I had to wait for that to dry, sand down that side, and repaint it.  



It's okay, it is all a learning curve trying out a new tool, and that's just how it is!  Now I know for next time :)

So, I decided to save myself more stress and just use my paintbrush to apply the topcoat!

I put on my new hardware from Amazon and it was complete!








What do you think? Have you ever used a paint sprayer?  I really love this sprayer!  I can't wait to use it again and again!
