Shake the primer can for one minute after the mixing ball rattles. Spray the primer on one side of the luan backboard in slow, back-and-forth motions, overlapping each stroke for best coverage.
Let primer dry for approximately 30 minutes and spray on the Gloss Deep Slate in the same fashion. Let dry for approximately 30 minutes.
Spray the already primed wood pieces with the Gloss Deep Slate and let dry for approximately 30 minutes.
Spray the metal pieces with the Metallic Copper Rose spray paint in steady motions to cover the entire piece. Let all pieces dry for approximately 1 hour.
Once all pieces are dry to the touch (not tacky), layout your pieces on the luan and measure equal spacing.
Attach wood trim pieces to the luan with a hammer and nail, making sure to connect the perforated metal in between.
Attach hook and eye hardware to each side of the back of the luan and string hanging wire between them.
Hang your beautiful masterpiece above your bed and enjoy!
