Who else used Tai Pan as their source of inspiration for home decor when they first purchased their home?
I admit, I bought into the whole Tuscan style that I hate now and am slowly getting rid of throughout my house. Which is precisely why these wrought iron squares had to go. I paid good money for them though (purchased before my thrifting saviness began) and I couldn't just get rid of them. So, I overhauled them and now love how they look flanking my mirror.
To paint, I did a coat of Kilz spray paint primer and then used a brush to paint more primer in all the nooks and crannies that were too difficult to hit with the spray can. My finish coat was white, gloss Krylon Dual.
The finish of the primer is somewhat different on wrought iron then when going on wood or other surfaces. I think it is because the wrought iron is so porous, but it is almost chalky. Don't worry, the top coat has its normal finish.
How have you made over some of you purchase regrets?
