spray paint

Hi!

The other day I was reading Becky's blog (I follow her blog and just LOVE her fresh, creative ideas and products) and was happy to see that I'm not the only person obssessed with spray painting!!! And I started spray painting out of necessity and not curiousity........I just couldn't find what I was looking for so I usually altered things. I love spray painting because it cheap and it could totally change the object your spray painting and bring a splash of colour (or not).

These 3 frames I bought years ago and they where all brown.........I LOVE brown but I have a bit too much brown so I spray painted them green (love green too) and I used an old rag to rub some of the paint off in order to see a bit of the original brown.


(my babies)







This frame was a very light pine that I spray painted white..............but I think I need a little colour...I'm thinking a yummy shade of pink!! Mia would love that!






I also spray painted this basket yellow (it was a light pine colour).






I have such a hard time finding lighting I like here in Zagreb!!! So I ended up spray painting these lights...both of them were this gold-bronze-ish colour.





I was excited when I saw chrome spray paint at the hardware store.....now this light matches all the other chrome fixtures in our bathroom.




Well, I'm busy working on my digi releases for the 5th of this month so hope you pop by and see what I have come up with and what my design team has come up with........also there will be a challenge annoucement!!

Have a great day!!
Pin It!

I didn't know that you can get chrome paint and here in Zagreb, too! I remember when I painted our living room dark red many years ago, the Bauhaus clerk and painter thought I was crazy.

Hello,

I know this post is really old but just curious if you remember the color/brand of spray paint you used for the silver fixture?

Thanks!
