A Mini Makeover So here is a little project I did yesterday. Got out the spray paint and sprayed this Christmas tin. The tree was fine, but the red color was really orangey and not my favorite shade of red. I got the chance to go to Walmart a week or so ago- yes you heard me right! I know a lot of people like to dis Walmart, and believe me I've done it myself but I have to say, now that there are no Walmarts near me, it's a whole different story! The closest one is about an hour away. Anyhoo, I have only been to Walmart about 3 times in the last 4 years, it's not my favorite place in the world but this trip there didn't disappoint! The most exciting thing I found was spray paint- really cheap spray paint, like half the price that I pay in my town hardware stores, and WAY more color choices!! Wow, I couldn't believe how many color choices they had, I wish I had bought even more. This tin top is sprayed with ballet slipper pink- so pretty. I bought this and "celery" for a future furniture transformation for the little gal. So, this tin looks cute, but I think I need to do a bit more experimenting, or just dry the paint longer, or shake the can longer because now it is stuck closed and I don't think the lid is going to come off at all- not exactly a good trait for a storage container. Anyway, I will buy a tin of cookies or something and try again, but it does look cute. I think I just have to practice my spray painting technique a bit more.
Christmas tin before: I've got some other metal spray painting projects to share, and a few other Walmart purchases to show, so stay tuned!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
