Did you guys see the cherry and white farmhouse kitchen table revamp I posted about on Tuesday? I am so in love with it and I enjoy the warmth it brings into our kitchen!
In that post I showed you that I used my finish max to spray the whole thing so today I wanted to talk about something that probably happens to everyone! You get a little trigger happy on the paint sprayer or on the spray paint can or you get a little antsy and spray on a layer to heavy and of course… the paint runs! ahhhhh!!
No worries! I am here today to help you through it! You see, when I was sponge sanding my chairs down for final coat and getting rid of all the grit I found a run… dang it!
Good thing I know how to fix it and in just a couple minutes you will too! Now even if you were painting and found a run in the wet paint, you would take the same steps – only wait for the run to dry.
You need the paint to be completely dry.
And you need a really sharp razor blade!
Take your razor blade and simply slice off the run. The paint in the “run” part will be thick and will slice away really nicely.
Here you can see where I sliced off the run.
Take a sponge sander and lightly sand the area where the run was and the surrounding area.
and then you are ready to paint once again! You will need to add a few extra coats to the area to cover the place you sliced off – but you will be run free and happy!!
Have a great day – and be patient as you spray!
