~Been busy Spray painting ~

I've been busy spray painting anything and everything I can get my hands on....somethiing that doesn't take a lot of energy...but lets the creative juices flow.  Here are just a few things that I've done....

This little cup and saucer was bought for me by my Mama at a yardsale.  It was a dark rose and just didn't flow well with all of my light pink.  So I thought what the heck...spray paint it.  Now it's perfect!






I had some white plates up above the windows that just got lost from being too white.   Now I think they are perfect...I love this shade of green with the pale pink. 

I think I would actually have withdraw if I didn't have my trusty spray paint or a good old paint can.  There is so much you can do with PAINT!

  7. That is so pretty, and actually gives me an idea. I have several cups and saucers that I have inhereted, which I have never liked the color of, which I have tried to sell through Kijiji, to no avail. I could just spray paint them! Thanks for the idea!!

  8. Melanie, the cup and saucer look so pretty. I would never think of painting something like that. I have a few pieces of furniture I would like to re-do but have never done it. One of these daysI'll give it a whirl. Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. What a fantastic idea! I would never have thought to paint dishes. The cup and saucer turned out very sweet. I like the pink against the wall color in the bedroom too.
    So pretty.

  11. That's neat, Melanie! I wouldn't have thought to paint a teacup and saucer, but it looks great! That little topiary in the background ~ I have one just like it; it just doesn't have flowers.

  14. I am so pitiful with spray paint. The last time Debbie Doo had a spray paint challenge, I janked-up two trays and Mr. Art @ Home had to rescue them! You did a great job, though.

  18. Diane..I used Krylon Pink...I think it's for plastics and works perfectly. It gives a good coating. Thank you!
