Post Sanding Before Painting.
Wipe with wet washcloth, then dry with dry washcloth before painting, this removes the dust from sanding.

Side by Side Before and After.

1 can down, 2 to go.

Okay, so, this is the easiest upcycling project I've done.
1. remove hardware
2. sand
3. spray paint
4. seal with faux glaze or clear coat
5. move into house (yet to happen here)

{I did finish this BUT a huge dust storm blew in before we moved them inside and now they're covered in dust, waiting until our room is painted to bring them in, but when I do you'll see the whole finished product, please don't hate me for making you wait}
