My love of spray paint continues…

I’ve got so many projects going on right now it’s hard to keep them straight. The kitchen counter looks like Michael’s threw up paper and die cuts and glue for Sabrina’s bridal shower invitations. The craft table has pieces of things I can not mention because it may or may not be a gift to said bride. There are frames on the back porch, spray paint long dried but totally lost from my mind. My most exciting project is being housed in the garage- an estate sale find for our family room… a table I plan to sand with love, then prime and paint within an inch of it’s life. My list of to-dos keeps growing and not enough things are being crossed off. Not to mentioned my sudden obsessing with all of the BBC masterpiece series’… why must they be so long?

Anyway. Here is a project I completed awhile ago that was easy, cheap, and fast. I will refrain from making a joke there.

I am in lurve with our kitchen. It is very spacious and there is literally five times as much counter space as our Sandy apartment. Above our cabinets we have some space between the ceiling that is just so….empty. I saw this on a friend of a friend’s blog and thought, like I often do, I can do that!

I ran through all of our local salv army type stores and grabbed vases, jars, plates- anything that I could envision spray painting. I got them home and washed the gross off of them. Am I the only one that feels the need to wash up to my elbows after I visit a flea market? After they dried, I took them out back to the spray studio (…the grass) and gave them each about five coats of my fav white high gloss. Sounds time consuming but really, the thirty minutes drying in between went by super quickly.
Some pieces are actually white milk glass pieces that I already had, so I threw them up there too. I really love the way it turned out, I feel like it filled the space really well without being distracting. Total cost: About 30 bucks, mostly on spray paint.
And here’s another ongoing project of mine:
The child that loves dress ups.

  1. what an awesome idea! I always have some sort of craft I am working on, but I love the idea of spray painting jars and plates white. I spray paint all sorts of things, but never thought of that! Very pretty, and not distracting, I agree. I may have to copy you… 🙂


  2. Awesome! Good thing you don't live in CA where they have earthquakes. Oh. Wait. Hmmmmm.
