Tip #1 You cannot spray paint holding the can upside down. It really just won’t work out for you.
Always hold your spray paint can at a right angle.
Tip #2 Check the price tag because they can really vary!
Neutral colors tend to be less expensive and you can find them at some stores for only 99 cents a piece. So you can freshen up your antique finds with a neutral and then add your pop color with accessories, fabric, and other embellishments to help you save even more money.
Tip #3 The spray paint can will make that awful hissing sound even when it’s empty. So, try not to stand there for 10 minutes wondering why that last coat doesn’t seem to be taking.
Simply test your paint on a blank surface if you aren’t sure if it’s empty or not.
Tip #4 Spray paint is super sticky so make sure you wipe down your project piece and keep bugs and debris away from your drying item because they will be stuck there unless you want to scrape it all off and try again.
Tip #5 Unless you are going for an unfinished look, you may want to spray paint in all directions.
When painting wicker or any other woven material remember to spray paint in small circular motions to make sure you have achieved full coverage.
