make me pretty – spray paint powerMarch 23, 2011
I am not very good with spray paint – I get drips and light spots and setting up the drop cloth outside, or in the garage, is just a pain in the butt. Sometimes, though, it is just the right tool for the job. Here are three projects I recently completed that really wanted to be spray painted.
I found these cute plastic vintage frames at the thrift shop. I loved their shape but wasn’t really into the fake wood brown color.
I want to spray paint everything yellow but I decided to branch out and try a pretty turquoise color on this ornate gold mirror.
After Frankie the Pug gave these bamboo plant pots his approval I spray painted them yellow on the outside and blue on the inside. After adding a couple pretty plants my yard is looking pretty happy!
If you decide to get crazy with the spray paint be patient and do several light coats. Also, wear a mask. That stuff is so stinky, even outside! But once you do one project I guarantee you are going to start looking for more stuff to paint. I could make that yellow, and that yellow, and that yellow!
