I didn't post my bridle tree barn raising project on the facebook group yet but I've been putting photos of this on my instagram as I built it. I've recently fallen in love with book nooks and I realized that having a tiny stable for my bookshelf would be a great project for the already busy month of December.

The spray paint adheres well, there's minimal effort and you don't have to hide brush strokes. I swear I'll be doing any more kitchens/ painted prints this way. But this is about the second way, the hard way.
This way still requires a layer of primer, specifically one intended for plastics. I still sprayed on my primer for this because it is way easier but brush on primers exist and can be ordered off of amazon.
Then I started brushing on the craft acrylic. This is at two coats.
