Well, if it is September, it must be time for some painting and staining. Well, in my world, that is. The humidity was down and the temperature was cooler .... so, why not do some spray painting. Good thing this job got done early in the week, because hot temps. and humidity came back with a vengeance.
About 35 yrs. ago, we bought a inexpensive bedroom set when we moved into our home in Toronto. Time was not kind to this set. The finish has worn off in places and there are many chips and scratches. The set just looked tired and worn out. So, after buying 9 cans of spray paint, my furniture has been revived and here sit the pieces waiting for the paint to cure. I still need to add a coat of water based Varethane to protect the paint and that was done inside.
Edit September 21, 2016: I've added the photo below to show that I do the spray painting outdoors with lots of plastic protecting the flowers, shrubs and brickwork. A few comments made me aware that I omitted this important fact. Please don't spray your stuff indoors as spray and the smell will be everywhere. I do paint with a brush indoors with plastic or painter's canvas to protect the rug and floor.
The headboard received a coat of Varethane indoors (the spray painting was done outside).
These crates were stained indoors.

Have a great day!
