Everything is changing around here...even my favorite giraffe(s).
To work with the new color scheme they are going to have to be painted white. I started with one coat of Kilz primer and then began spray painting with white.
I noticed after 4 coats (yes...4!!) that it just wasn't going to cover. The paint was just getting sucked into the wood. I probably should have guessed this would happen...right?!
You can see it in the second picture...still after 4 coats it wasn't looking right. I love these giraffes so I had to take some serious action...ha!
Out came the Zinsser primer and I got started on one coat using a brush. I could tell right away it was going to work much better! After completing one coat of Zinsser primer I let the giraffes dry overnight (waiting is so difficult!). Once they were dry I did one more spray paint coat and it worked like a charm!
They look so nice in the newly painted family room!! So relieved I was able to make them work with the new colors...there are just some things I don't want to replace.
So different, but I really like the white!
