My daughter Amy is about to have a 2nd child (a girl that will be named Payton) in a matter of weeks, so she is getting ready for the larger family by getting a nursery ready and making sure that Grandson Alex’s room is more than an afterthought. She asked me to paint a white chest of drawers with a hammered metallic brown, so of course I did.
I removed all the handle hardware that was black, then mounted it on cardboard for spraying with a Rustoleum nickel metallic spray paint. The metal painted parts took the new paint very well.
Though not melamine, the white paint I had to cover was pretty slick and hard. I wiped it down with DA, then scuff sanded with 150 to get some tooth since I did not want to prime. I used the Rustoleum Universal Paint and Primer in One hammered version. It took three coats to fully cover, but after a couple of days of curing, it is very hard.
I was glad to see them re-cycle this since it is made of wood and durable enough that it will be great for a young man’s boyhood years at least.
Thanks for stopping in.
