I painted the bottom of a VERY dated hutch awhile back to give it new life as a TV cabinet. I spray painted it because it was such terrible particle board and I was afraid I’d have to paint it multiple times. The paint I used was a grey. But after I brought it into the house and put it in its place, the grey looked a little purple. Not so happy with the purple twinge.
TV Stand Before
So I knew it would only be a matter of time before it got another facelift. This time the grey served as a base for the distressing process. So I got to painting.
I chose a very happy and bright old pickup truck blue. And I purchased it in a latex based paint. After I painted the whole stand, and before it dried significantly, I lightly sanded the edges of the front, to reveal some of the grey.
Adding the New Color
Then I let it dry completely.
Tomorrow, the next layer!
