Here are the products I purchased for the re-purpose:
Polycrylic is essential to refinished furniture. This allows items to maintain a clean surface and coat the furniture for durability. This layer is applied after the piece is spray painted the desired color.
Next, I spray painted the table, using two cans of paint in Paprika from Rust Oleum. This is my new favorite color, and supposedly, the color of 2012. Just a heads up for all of us do it yourselfers!
Make sure when spray painting, you use a mask and stay at least 10-12 inches from the item.
After two coats, and the paint was dry, I gave the item three coats of polycrylic spray.
