Today, I overcame my inability to properly use spray paint. Yes, I KNOW it’s easy. Well, I know now.
I used one of our moving boxes to keep the over spray in check and went to town! (It’s not warm enough outside here to use the great outdoors, so I painted in the basement computer/entertainment/craft studio – with the air purifier on high and the window open!)
First, I painted the goblets for the pedestal bowls.
Then I painted the wooden knob for another dome I picked up for $.99 and a set of Dollarama frames.
And this pretty? It’s silver plated, and cost me $2.99. But the plating had rubbed off in spots. So it got a shot of the hammered metal paint, too.
I got a lot of mileage out of this can of paint. Even after I messed up a coat on the goblets and had to sand things down and start again, there’s still some left. And I’m a spray paint convert.
Here’s some shots of the finished projects. There are no photos in the frame yet, and I haven’t staged anything, but I certainly feel like I’ve accomplished something today. Since I’ve haven’t touched the chair for a few days, or done laundry or dishes or any of the umptillion other things I SHOULD be doing, I’ll take the little accomplishments I get!
I have plans for the tray holder that involve a lighting fixture. Believe it.
Once everything dries and has a few hours to cure a bit more, I’ll be gluing the domes into the goblets to finish off the pedestals. Hopefully, I’ll have a reveal tomorrow!
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by!
