Ode to Spray Paint

Oh, Spray Paint! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
I have just recently (over the last month) discovered the joy and bliss of spray paint. I had no idea what I was missing! My life is so much fuller, so much richer and more colorful now that I have it in my life!
Though some may say I am taking it a little too far. I wander around my house looking for things (Both inside AND outside) to paint. Exhibit A:
Yucky Brass House Numbers turned FABULOUS with some Outdoor Black Spray Paint!!
Exhibit B: Ho-Hum Paper towel holder purchased a million years ago at a garage sale for $0.50.
Now tell me this doesn't look better?
Now when I go to thrift stores I am looking for beautiful things that are asking for a make over.
Exhibit C & D (The item on the left and in the middle--all of these items I bought for $0.25 at my friend's thrift store):

The bowl on the left was a little too brown and a little too shiny on the inside--but I loved the look of it and the price! So I took care of it with some Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint.

And Viola--An awesome new fruit bowl!

Remember my little dish holding my thrifty Jute Balls? It was the gold thing in the picture above! Doesn't it look like a million bucks with a coat of OIL RUBBED BRONZE paint?

And this little vase I didn't actually paint--I just put it in here cause it was such a fabulous vase for 25 cents!! And filled with some fun grass--it was the perfect thing for that space!

Stay tuned for even MORE fun SPRAY PAINTING PROJECTS!



  1. Sharon, I am so proud of all you are doing. Everything is so innovative and, as usual, completed to perfection. I don't
    know where you get your looks, talents, intelligence, patience, etc.--certainly not from me. I do know you got your (only slight) tendency for OCD from your Dad.
    You have to guess who wrote this!!

  2. I love spray paint too. It's cheap and easy. With a paint sprayer I don't need to buy new stuff. Just spray paint it and it will looks good as new or even better than the original.


Thank you for your comments!
