1. My paint was too watery, and
2. My spray bottles only had one spray setting - large drops.
Since my first attempt was indoors, I did not want paint to get all over the place. I waited for the weather to clear up before I made my second attempt - which should be out doors. I also picked up some better spray bottles.
Much to my surprise, I encountered the same results as before. Frustrated, I put this project on hold. And then one day I started making a computer desk.
