Two months ago, I posted on some unusual items in my home that got spruced up with spray paint. See the whole post HERE.
My bathroom faucet was the most bold. I told you that I would keep you posted on how it held up. So, here goes.
I didn’t prime the faucet or paint it with anything special.
I just wiped it down really well and then spray painted it with my $.97 can of paint.
It held up very well in my opinion. This is our main bathroom and there are six of us home most all of the time.
So, to say the least…the bathroom gets a ton of use!!
The handles got the most use. The cold one to be exact.
Then as I was cleaning the bathroom this weekend, I scrubbed a little too hard and a big chunk of paint came off at the base.
I was kind of frustrated and then I realized that there was a five minute and under $1 fix available.:)
This time however, I decided to use a metal brush and scrub all the paint off and start fresh.
|A real beauty, huh?!|
Next, I primed the faucet,
and spray painted it again. The results look better than new.
I am assuming it will last longer this way and I won’t have to be so careful when I clean.
However, for the amount of use this bathroom has gotten since I painted the faucet two months ago, I think $.97 and five minutes of my time was a great investment!
