Goodwill Find Redo

Do you remember this find the other day from Goodwill?

After some altering, it now looks like this.

How did I do it?  Simple.  I used a 50% off coupon for Michael's and bought my favorite brand of spray paint, Krylon Satin Ballet Slipper.  I sprayed a few coats of this.  Probably should have used some primer first since the original color was so dark, but oh well.  Live and learn :)!  So, after the few coats, this is how it looked. 

You could still see some of the original color come through, but I was not going to worry about it since I was going to black wash (?) is that what it is called.  I had some black acrylic paint already that I washed out a little with water and added it to all the nooks and crannys and then wiped it off with a paper towel.  I applied and wiped off until I got it looking like this. 

It didn't come out like I wanted.  Maybe you have some suggestions for me.  Let me hear it.  All for around $5.

  1. The rub n buff stuff is awesome. A little goes a long way. I think it looks funky and cool the way you have it though.
