I got to spray paint this week!
Yay, for me!
It isn’t that I love the fumes or anything. I do Not. In fact, they usually give me a headache.
Probably due to the fact that I am in such a terrible hurry I rarely usually don’t take the proper safety precautions.
What, who me, impatient??
I love a good make-over project. The transformation of ugly to pretty!
Although this one is more like not too bad to pretty cool because I didn’t think it was too bad in the gold just a whole lot better in black.
This girl came from the Hobby Lobby clearance isle-90% off. What? I love Hobby Lobby!
She needs a new coat.
I am a fan of the classic black.
Dun, Dun, Dun….Spray Paint to the rescue.
I really need to find a little emoji spray paint can with a cape. Don’t you think so?
Someone make me one, ok?
That would be awesome!
This project was as simple as simple could be. I was lucky that everything separated apart by unscrewing it.
I didn’t have to tape anything off.
Yay, team! I hate all that taping off business.
I just painted away. It took two coats to cover up the gold.
You can use any brand of chalkboard paint or flat black paint for that matter to achieve the same look.
Chalkboard paint is just ultra-flat black paint anyway.
I’ve used both of these brands of chalkboard paint in the past. Although I am partial to the Rustoleum,
I’ve found that the Valspar sprayer is kind of weird to use and the paint can does not keep as long as the Rustoleum does.
I had a ton of left over paint in the can so I just grabbed an unsuspecting basket that was laying around my garage that I thought could use a little make-over herself.
Be careful not to hang around my garage too long. You never know what might happen to you.
That took hardly any paint! I still have some left from the same can. What else can I paint……
Since I make candles in my garage I have a ton of supplies laying around.
What can I find?
Votive holders. I will paint those too.
This can is like never ending. It wants me to keep painting forever. I just know it….
“Welcome to the meeting!”
“Can you please introduce yourself?”
“Hi, my name is Kimberly and I may have a problem with spray paint”
No, it is not a problem it is a gift. Bwahahahaha.
Gets kicked out of group.
Goes home to paint more.
I hope you’ll try your hands at some spray painting projects my farmhouse friends.
Let me know.
Send me some of your pictures in the comments box below.
I would love to see your before and after transformations.
I don’t want to be the only spray paint addict out there.
