Give me a can of spray paint and watch me smile!

Or, more accurately, give my husband a can of spray paint and watch me smile as I stand there watching him do my every bidding. ;-D
My husband ROCKS! I love that we love to do projects and decorate together.

I wanted to show off some of the projects "we've" been busyin' our crafty selves with!

So, I was just a-wanderin' down the aisle at Goodwill, when my eye landed on this little beauty. Now you may be thinkin' what I first thought, and that is...

"You UGLY, you UGLY, you U-and-G-and-L-and-Y! You UGLY!" And you stinky!But as I studied it in all it's ugliness, a small spark of vision grew. "This thang could be beautiful" I thought.

Feast your eyes on this! Uh Huh, Oh Yeah, see what I'm talkin' 'bout?!


Black makes all the nasty 70's disappear!

This is the flourish that caught my eye in the first place. Especially because it looks an awful lot like this...

These mirrors, I also found at Goodwill and were also a nasty wood grain look. I spent 5 bucks a piece on these beauties!


I just couldn't get the whole effect together with my camera... oh well. Come see it in person!

I was feeling a spring in my step and had to do a little sumpin' on my table. Green and white and critters are cute on a cake stand!
Inspired by The Nester, of course.

This little cutie was always peeking out at me from a plant in my Grandma's house. I got the plant after she passed away and didn't see the bunny for a loooong time. When I found it again, my heart was filled with joy! Sentimental.


Just wait till you see what "we're" doing with this mirror!!!

What do you like to do with spray paint?
