Came across an old oak coffee table for free. Oak does not fit our living room décor, so I refinished it this past weekend. First was to disassemble it, then a lot of sanding, and finally paint. To get the finish I wanted it took three cans of Rustoleum with turbo spray nozzle.
The turbo spray nozzle shoots a very wide pattern. By fully painting all the pieces first, I could let it dry and finish with many coats shot at twice the distance. This allows the paint to land with a slight textured or matte surface. Otherwise this is a high gloss finished with shot close and the paint can flow smooth.
