My Very Own Spray Paint Party

The temperature is finally above 50 and the wind is calm. What is a girl to do . . .


I have been waiting all winter for this day. Dug out my stash of "to-be-painted" stuff and got to work, assembly line style. I still have a few things that need a couple more coats but I can show you what I have complete so far. (I once again forgot to take before pictures - I was just so excited)
First off was this cute little wicker table my mother-in-law passed on to us a few years back. It was in need of scraping and a paint job, it was so bad every time you touched it an avalanche of paint chips would fall off! After scraping, priming and painting it is once again looking great. I placed in on our screen porch and added my Pepsi crate to hold all hubbies computer cords and such until he needs it.
Next I had a dark brown urn that looked a little goldish. The color just didn't suit my decor, it is now sporting a fresh coat of paint. It looked a little bright when finished so I sanded off some of the paint and added a light stain to tone it down a bit. This picture doesn't do it justice, seems to be very bright white, but it is not in real life. I really like how it turned out. Placed it on the dinning room table and added one of my wheatgrass planters to it. Looking GOOD.
My assembly line is still in working order and I have much more to show you when I am finished.
Spray painting ROCKS!


  1. Oh, goodness yes!

    First of all, your projects are lookin' good. Secondly, you've reminded me how much I need to check my own paint supply for the wrought iron on the porch. I just posted my dusty, rusty table and chairs.

    Spring just feels soooo good!!

  2. Looks light and bright! Great job! Spray paint is just amazing.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
