Spray painted tapware

Hey Guys, 

 

Over the weekend I spray painted the tap and the mixer from one of the bathroom and was pretty impressed with how it turned out. After looking at some prices to buy a brand new one, I thought I would try out the Dulux 300g Metalshield Epoxy Enamel Spray Paint Satin Black first since it would save me a lot of money and it would be such a quick DIY. 

 

Here is how I turned the tapware from chrome to black:

- First cleaned everything really well

- Sanded everywhere with a 240 grid sandpaper 

- Cleaned again to make sure it was perfect to start spraying it 

- A very important step, tape everything well to make sure spray paint doesn't go anywhere 

- Spray following the instructions on the bottle ( I applied 2 coats) 

 

 That's it very easy DIY that makes a total difference.

Wow! What a difference. Great paint job. I’d be too worried of drip marks! You’ve done an amazing job 😊

Thank you so much, I just try to not spray too much in the same spot to make sure there are no drip marks :smile:
