Hi. My name is Megan and I’m addicted to spray painting.
It’s a new-ish addiction of mine and I just can’t stop! I started with this owl I found on clearance at Target (the color doesn’t look that bad online, but in ‘real life,’ it wasn’t good). So, I made him navy! He’s been on the dining and living room tables and now he lives on the wine cabinet with three glassybabies. (Have I mentioned my glassybaby addiction yet? I have one of those too. Lucky for me they’re a Seattle company and have ‘second sales’ of their slightly imperfect models a couple times each year.)
I quickly jumped from navy spray paint to purple and tried out this pin from my new Pinterest lifestyle challenge. We’re in the middle of the seemingly-never-ending process of painting our house, so I decided to paint this mat purple, similar to the color-to-be of our front door. We tried it for a few weeks and this pin goes in the FAIL category. After a few weeks of the purple door mat, the paint wore away and I repainted the mat with a hammered black spray paint. The black seems to be holding up and I like the metallic hammered sheen.
Since I’ve been spending so much time in the spray paint aisle at Home Depot, a new color/style of spray paint caught my eye: metallic gold. I had high hopes when I bought this spray paint and it hasn’t let me down! I have spray painted the following in the past week: a glass shell, a mason jar, two plastic dinosaurs and a glass vase and picture frame today for next weekend’s Oscar party. Like I said, I may have a problem. In search of the Oscar party supplies today, I even wrote “things to paint gold” on my list for the Goodwill. Brandon saw the list and called me out, don’t worry. Gold photos will be forthcoming!
As I went out to spray paint the latest items this evening and as I was walking out, Brandon coined my ‘addiction’ as Midas-itis. So, do you have Midas-itis too? Are you into spray painting? I’d love to hear about it.
