So yesterday I had an order for an Old Ochre side table. I opened a new can and got started. And Old Ochre is such a great color I decided to shoot a table and gossip bench I had around. And why not a chair and some picture frames for that art project I've been planning. And then someone dropped off an old TV cabinet so I cleaned that up and shot it.
Then I thought--whoa--I'm at 8! Let's go for 10! Well, I got to 11.75 before my can ran out!
Girl Scouts Honor. 1 can.
Ok, I know you all want the specs.
Color: Old Ochre-- which in my opinion gets the best one coat coverage of all the white/creams. Another fav for coverage is Paris Grey
Application: HVLP Graco Spraystation 3900 with 20% water added to the paint. Two coats were sprayed on each piece.
Hours: Worked the pieces from totally dirty, defunct raw stage to first coat of Clear Soft Wax in the following times: 11:30 am-2 pm, 2:30-4:15, 9:30 pm-1:30 am. (Yes, I know you're all seeing an element of crazy here--but it's easier to work when the store is closed and the kids are asleep.)
Here are my pagent gals:
1 French Provincial Side Table
1 Gossip Bench
1 TV Cabinet which will be turned into an Ipod Player
3 Chairs (One of which will need a final touch up coat--that's the .75)
1 double flip round table
3 large Picture frames
1 ceramic jug
1 metal container thingy
Of course those of you who know me, know the real accomplishment here. That would be me keeping my ADHD in check long enough to paint 12 pieces the same color. ;)
thanks for stopping by!
