Sea Blue Vintage Life Ring
Recently, I picked up this old orange life ring at a private house sale & immediately thought it would look perfect painted sea blue and displayed on a wall at home.
Firstly, I painted the entire life ring white and then taped the areas that I wanted to keep white and then set about painting the rest blue.
Once that was completed, I then left it to dry in the sun for half hour before giving it another coat.
A little touch up in the areas where needed,
and then a light sand to give a little shabby aged look before waxing to protect the paint.
I love hearing your thoughts. So don't hesitate to leave a comment on any of the blog posts if you would like to.
and until next time - lover of the sea and all things Coastal Vintage
