Fusion Mineral Paint and a Mail Organizer4:00:00 AM
Happy New Year!
The new year is the perfect time go get organized!
Organization is always an issue in a busy house...
especially the mail, coupons, papers, leashes,
and keys that always seem to be thrown onto the desk...
During a weekly scan of the thrift store shelves
I ran across a dusty old piece
that was in desperate need of a new life.
I couldn't miss the potential in this piece and
I had some ideas for a make-over...
Today I'm trying Fusion Mineral Paint for the first time...
I received a box of samples to try and I couldn't wait
to get started.
The Fusion Mineral paint comes in gorgeous colors
and there is no waxing involved. For this piece and all the intricate details, I thought the no waxing part would be a great thing.
I changed out the dated pegs on this piece with metal hooks.
For this piece I just painted right on the wood, no sanding or
priming but if your piece is shiny or has a finish you may
want to use their Ultra Grip Primer first.
I coated the metal hooks with Ultra Grip to insure that the
paint would stick to the metal hooks.
Because I knew these hooks would take a beating...
I didn't want to take any chances with chipping.
I painted the entire piece with a very pretty color called Damask.
And I was done! No need to give it a top coat or wax!
The new Entryway organizer is beautiful and the Fusion Mineral paint really did a fantastic job. This piece that may have ended up
in the trash turned out beautifully and will be the perfect addition to the kitchen drop station.
I'm looking forward to using Fusion Mineral Paint again soon!
I loved the way it went on smoothly and covered in
2 quick coats. The drying time was fast and I loved
the no wax finish which for this project was amazing!
