First, I had to remove all the dust from the red crate. I used a barely damp cloth, then swabbed the little parts with a q-tip.
Then I put on my paint pants (everybody has pants stained by paint, right?).
At this point I should have also found gloves, but not realizing how difficult it is to wash spray paint off of your hands I did not break those bad boys out until the second coat. Don't let this happen to you!
Outside we go. Here I am waving to you!
It's a bit mottled after the first coat, but that's okay - second coat's a'comin'!
Until next time...
