Over Spring Break I tried to tackle some unfinished projects. On one of the days that was nice enough for the kiddos to run around outside I spray painted the lamp my mom fixed the last time she was here for a visit. As always I took forever with my prep work. Please tell me that I am not the only one who spends as much time taping as they do painting!
This was my first time spray painting and I was so grateful for everyone's helpful hints. I took the slow and steady aprouch. I was happy with how even the spray paint went on but I was freaking out about the color. It looked nothing like the can! I took some deep breaths and finished what I had started. Then I walked away....
Boy am I glad that I didn't give up. I love the way the paint dried! The color is just what I envisioned it would be; a cheery red. And everyone in the house seems to like the lamp's new look too. Both of the boys are fascinated with its shine. I fear it will be covered in finger prints before Friday.
So now that the lamp has gotten a makeover I feel that my table needs to be restyled too. Or maybe I should just re-do the whole family room! I am sure Hubby would not mind at all!!!!
