I am trying re-purpose an IKEA kids table from blue to pink and purchased Gloss Candy Pink General Purpose Spray Paint. I've spray painted the legs and now spray painted the table top with one coat.
I decided that it would be easier to use a roller on the table top. I've color match this spray paint with BEHR dynasty sampler. I started reading about oil based vs water based paint. I think the spray paint is oil based and the BEHR is water based. I also read that oil based paint is more toxic but more durable.
I am trying to understand if this type of spray paint is used to color furniture (wood/metal) or should get acrylic spray paint.
If I want to paint a wooden cabinet would it be ok to use this spray paint? I've read a bunch of blogs on this topic but can't get a definite answer.
That make sense regarding spray painting furniture is a bit easier especially if there are details on it. What about the type of paint when using spray paint vs regular. Is general purpose spray paint oil based? Is it better to get acrylic spray paint which I think is water based? Is there a difference?
Thank you all a lot of great information! Very excited to work on and paint more furniture :)
To follow up on the spray paint information. Is most spray paint that is sold in cans oil based? Especially the once that are sold in Home Depot / Lowes. It's hard to find that information. For water based paint one would buy a can then thin it and use a paint sprayer? It seems that for DIY / Small project it's just easier to buy can of spray paint. What would be a reason to choose to use roller / paint brush?
Next project is IKEA Billy Book case. I guess it would be easier just to use all purpose spray paint for all the shelfs and walls. What do you think?
