Inside our garage sat this locker. It was pretty neat by itself, but not quite what someone would want to put in their living room. Then it occurred to me: Paint Locker! Yes, that easy.
Step One: Clean! Scrub that baby down with some warm water and soap. Use some good ‘ol elbow grease.
Step Two: Paint Locker. Throw some acrylic paint on. Just put a glob on a cloth and smear it in nice and good.
Step Three: Sand it down. This will help blend the colors and bring out some of the original metal and rust. Yes rust is good in moderation.
-I wasn’t a huge fan of the overall look at this point-So i just kept going…
1. It’s important you do all strokes in one direction, in my case, it was up and down. Do some areas with a thicker coat of colored paint, and some really thin areas. This is messy…get into it!
2. Electric sander is a good friend to have.
3. If you’re getting frustrated, walk away from the project for a few hours or overnight to get some fresh eyes on it tomorrow. You may like it more than you think!
And there you have it folks. It’s as easy as: Paint Locker.
