So last week I finally check off an item on my patio sprucing to do list. That was to repaint my patio table. I used Krylon spray paint in Island Splash and it was a fairly quick and simple project and it had a big effect. And after searching Google for ideas and tutorials it was go time.
A few tips I have for you if you plan to do this:
1. Make sure your table is clear of dirt and rust. I wiped my furniture down first with vinegar to remove rust. Once that dried and the rust was gone I followed up with a dish detergent and water mixture.
2. Spray in quick short bursts whenever possible to be sure you cover the table and not your drop cloth. See my picture below for what I'm talking about. Because I let too much come out at once I ended up needing two cans of paint to finish the table. MAJOR WASTE!!!!

3. Be sure to let dry between coats
All in all for my first try at spray paint, I think it went well. Can't wait to paint the chairs and add all my other decorative elements.
Here's a before and after...
