Project Steps


It's the last day of July and it's also my birthday.  The last day of my birthday month.  I like to celebrate all month rather than just my actual birthday! :)  Why not?!  For my birthday this year, I decided to makeover a set of bags boards, also called "Cornhole" here in the Midwest.

Step 1

My friend had these old bags boards that she no longer wanted anymore.  I've been wanting to make my own for quite some time so I gladly took them off her hands.

Step 2

I gathered all of my paint supplies together to begin working on this project.  First, my best friend, the HomeRight Finish Max Super, Zinsser Bulls Eye Primer, Sherwin-Williams Paint, Rust-Oleum Metallic Blue Spray Paint, and two sizes of painters tape.


Step 3

I started out by using my HomeRight Super Finish Max and giving the boards a quick coat of primer.  I made sure that it was a nice, solid coat as the green needed a lot of coverage.

I let that dry and I went and gave the sprayer a quick clean!  Not only is the Super Finish Max easy to's easy to clean!!  Which is good because that's my least favorite part of a project, the cleanup!

Step 4

After the primer was dry, I used some Sherwin-Williams Urethane Trim Enamel on the boards.  I wanted a nice, strong coat of paint as they were going to see some wear and tear through the future years.

Step 5

I was wanting a fun geometric design on the top of the boards but wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to do it.  I decided to wing it and just started creating a design with painters tape.  There is a detailed tutorial on my blog, Refashionably Late, with the exact how-to!

Step 6

I found a really pretty Metallic Spray Paint at the store and wanted to use it on these boards.  I covered the top of the boards with an old yoga mat to protect the white.

Step 7

I sprayed the boards with even strokes so that it would have a nice and even finish.                                                             

Step 8

I waited about 15 minutes between coats and then I let it dry for a little while before I pulled the tape off.                      

Step 9

I peeled the tape and was finally able to see what my final design was.  It was kind of exciting to see exactly how it was going to look.  The metallic blue paint shimmers in the sun and I can't wait to play bags with friends this weekend! I also got some fun and festive weatherproof regulation size bean bags to match!

Step 10

Thanks so much for stopping by and stay tuned because next month I have a big reveal for you!  We are finally getting our deck extension painted!  I foresee a lot of outdoor fun in the month of August!  I would love for you to visit my blog, Refashionably Late, and see what other projects we are working on!
