Well, I finally finished up my son’s crib….well ahead of my Feb. deadline I might add. Once everything was mocked up and fit nicely, I took the headboard portion off and sprayed the finish on in 2 sections. I used Bullseye Sealcoat tinted with 40 drips of Transtint Medium Brown (40 drips cause I didn’t have a measuring device). Anyway, sprayed on 6 coats with 320 sanding between each. The final coat was buffed with 0000 steel wool. I am pretty happy with how it turned out…..especially since I didn’t follow any pattern. I also had my first experience with a spray applied finish. Worked well, I picked up a Critter spray gun, and though my compressor is a bit small, it worked fine. There are a few photos below…...next up…..matching dresser!
As always, all critiques are welcome,
-- Measuring twice and cutting once only works if you read the tape correctly!
