Have you ever found a beautiful, beat up tea set that just made you sad? Barely any silver left and maybe a dent or two? Well, I did and it made me ecstatic! I had finally found the perfect tea set to see if my spray paint theory would work. 5 dollars for all 3 pieces at a junk sale and now I’m the envy of afternoon tea drinkers everywhere. Break out the cucumber sandwiches folks and let's party it up like the English. Have fun! xoxo, Mark
Next time I try neon colors!
An old tea set or even just an old tea pot
Krylon Fusion spray paint in colors you like
Crystal Clear Enamel Protective Finish (high gloss) in a spray can
Outdoor workspace where you can spray paint
2. Sand the pieces with the fine sandpaper and remove all of the dust
3. Wipe down the pieces with rubbing alcohol
4. Tape around the inside of the mouths of each piece so that spray paint doesn’t get inside the pieces.
5. With small strokes, lightly spray each piece.
After you’re finished painting them, spray on your crystal clear enamel protective finish.
Let dry for one week in a dust free zone before use. This will give time for the paint to cure perfectly and keep it from chipping when you use it. Hand wash with warm soapy water and a soft sponge.
