I ❤ Spray Paint

A simple post for today. I ❤ spray paint!! What else is there to say? Really, is there anything else on earth that can so quickly and beautifully transform an object?!? I think not.

We got this vase as a wedding present 9 years ago. I love the shape, but it's no longer "goes" with anything. It's been relegated to a high cabinet since about 5 years and three moves ago.  She can no longer be used for fresh flowers, as she received a small crack in one of those moves.

But, as with most things, I can tell you exactly who gave this to us. I love them dearly, and one part of that couple has passed away.  So there was no way I was going to part with this.

So a little spray paint love was administered to give her new life and a home in the made over dining room.  
And no injuries in while in the process of this craft!!! I must be improving......

Hi there Brandy! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and for being a new follower!

I can't agree with you more about spray paint. Despite how transformative ALL paint can be on just about anything, I hold a special place in my heart for the stuff in a can. I too posted about my devotion here along with a tutorial.

Small tip: I found out thanks to another blogger that True Value has a ridiculous amount of colors of Krylon spray paint. I don't yet know where one is around me, but I'll be passing through there in no time!

It looks like new!

Can you use spray paint on furniture? Like say a nighttable?

Brandy said...

Livy, I have. It's always turned out really well as long you make sure you clean the piece really well first.
