My son has a little pint-size picnic table. It used to be a nice bright yellow but after a few summers in the sun and a few visits from the backsides of our chickens, it definitely wasn’t looking too bright (or sanitary) anymore. With spring here and summer weather on its way (I hope) I decided it was finally time to give this little table a facelift.
The paint was chipped and cracked so I gave it a good sanding before I started to paint.
Next step was to use a spray primer for a solid base coat before the color went on.
I used a few coats of a bright glossy green spray paint (Valspar Gloss Lucious Green) until it was nicely covered. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stencils for the letters. I used a foam roller to apply a light gray/blue for the lettering. After everything was dry I used a couple of coats of Valspar interior/exterior gloss clear protector to protect the finish. Tada! Here’s the new table… pretty darn cute I think.
Okay summer, we’re ready for you! Chickens, you are not allowed anywhere near this table from now on!
