– Spray Paint Without Sanding

I hate sanding, I always wished that there is a way to paint without sanding. After some research, I found this easy way to spray paint without sanding: It is simply by applying an oil-based spray paint primer like: Zinsser.

Here is my before picture, I just wiped my nightstand from dust.


Then I applied my spray paint primer . After the primer is dry, I lightly sand it with a fine grid sanding wedge to get a very smooth finish.

Now time for spray paint, I used Rustoleum Black Gloss, I wanted to have a glossy surface so my nightstand doesn’t look dull in front of my shiny silver leaf dresser. I applied almost 3 light coats of black spray paint. ( always 2 or 3 lights coats are  better than 1 heavy coat, like the nail polish concept).

I forgot to take picture with just the primer on 🙂

Since I didn’t distress the nightstand I wanted it to have some movement, so I chose the pulls to be silver so they can pop. I used “Rustoleum Metallic Silver”.


This nightstand is in my Master bedroom now, soon I will finish painting the walls and I will have the reveal, make sure you stop by to see it 🙂
