My husband has been wanting tray tables since we moved and gave our son the tray tables we had for his apartment. He especially likes them during football season so he can eat and watch the game. I had been intermittently looking and, serves me right for taking so long, he found them himself and came walking in through the garage door one day holding two of these.
My first words ~ “You are NOT bringing orange tables in my house, are you?”. Quick as ever, he said, “but they won’t be orange when you get done painting them.” Well, what can you say at that point! Unfortunately, whenever I look at them the words “bleed through” keep coming to mind, so I haven’t started on them yet.
I could use a little help on this one. Not having painted anything before that had bleed through potential, what might those of you who have dealt with bleed through suggest I use first? I would like to use chalk paint for the actual paint, but know I need to put something on them first. Should it be Kilz, shellac, some other kind of primer? Chalk paint is great, but I know that some bloggers have had bleed through issues even using that.
Thank you in advance! And, since football season has started, my husband will thank you!
