Step 3: Paint the base coat!
I cut up paper bags to use as a painting surface, but did this in my backyard because it was super windy the day I did it, and I knew my landlady might not be too excited if I painted all over the back porch. :D
You'll want to do two layers for good coverage. Make the layers nice and light - don't hold the can too close or spray so long that you get drips!
Do one thin layer, trying to cover as much as possible and then go inside and watch an episode of something (might I recommend Downton Abbey or Doctor Who?) or jump in place/dance around for a while. Then go back out and do another layer. Make sure you get all the edges!
You'll want to let the base coat dry/set for at least 24 hours after the second layer before you add any additional tape or mask them for painting. :D
