Lesson Learned

So, I am pretty new to the furniture painting. I wish
I would have gotten the memo that red paint takes
900 coats and a white primer is NOT IDEAL.
Still not finished but getting closer.

This is after about 5 coats. Only 2 more to go...
I got a really helpful tip. Whenever you are painting
something red you should go with a gray primer (thanks Jaime)


  1. i used grey primer and still had to do 3 coats of red in my bathroom. i will not paint anything red again. but it looks fabulous!

  2. Oh you poor thing! It is looking so so good though!


  3. its going to be so worth it! love the RED!
