Plug Ugly Loveseat update

Remember the little loveseat from Craigslist? Well, she’s coming along nicely.

I was too impatient to take a picture after masking and before painting, but here she is after her first coat of black satin spray paint. My very special thanks to Centsational Girl (link here). Kate, you and your spray-painted furniture have changed my life!

ah, spraypaint, my new best friend!

Here’s a closeup of the side, where you can see a few spots I missed. That’s what second coats are for! Can you see the areas masked off? They are going to get a light coat of ebony Minwax stain. The tape I used was the best I ever found, Trimaco. It’s not your typical painter’s tape, it was smooth and stuck really well.

You can’t see them in the picture very well, but the legs are sitting on little plastic painter’s pyramids, a thoughtful gift from mr husband. Guess he didn’t like seeing me struggling to paint the picture frames I did last month!

Here’s one more picture. Sorry they are so dark, and you can see the beer bottles are STILL sitting there. You would think someone would need gas money, or something!

we won't know the result until the bandages are removed
