Spray Paint Party- Before & Afters
This has been a fun little hobby for me lately. I'll stop by a store, buy something cheap, then do something (anything) to it to change it up. I'm starting to look at things differently when I shop. Instead of thinking, "I like that, but not the color," I think, "I can easily change the color on that." Zach 's happy about this, I'm sure.
This is "Little Blue"...
"Little Blue" is blue no more... :)
I did love that shade of blue, but it doesn't work in our house. I'm planning to pick some flowers to put in it soon and place it on our little kitchen table.
And this is our little arrangement that serves the purpose of hiding the cords to the computer and speakers:
And the finished product:
All bronzed up and shiny!
I bought this plain wooden frame for .50. I knew I wanted it red, and I already had some red spray paint. Simple.
AFTER (Part 1):
I love the fresh, Spring-y look of these! Now, I just have to find somewhere to put them! Ha!
I have one other thrifty craft that I want to start on soon. I already have the stuff for it, so I'm ready to get started. I'm hoping to create my own apothecary jars from glass candlesticks, glass vases & a little bit of E6000 glue. A simple craft involving just 3 things- not too bad.
I'm going to make another post soon on the piece of furniture that I painted, since I took a few step-by-step photos. I still have to put a few more coats on it for best coverage, then I'm planning on antiquing it, so it may take some time. I was SO surprised at how well it has turned out thus far though, because I was a little nervous about it. Looks like I have a new distraction!
Hope I didn't bore you too much with my new hobby! I get excited about it, whether you guys do or not. :)
