Today’s spray-painting inspiration features sun yellow which I picked it up at Home Depot. I have no idea where I got this first piece. I’ve had it for years and now I like it all over again. That’s the beauty of spray paint, isn’t it?
I want to point out something important: If you spray-paint something and it looks very … “spray-painted” (read: flat color) it probably calls for a little distressing. This adds depth, dimension, and interest to the piece you’ve painted. You can go really subtle and light so you hardly notice it. You can go crazy and get a very weathered look. Or you can go for something in the middle.
This shows you what the bowl looked like painted before (left) and during (right) the distressing. I just used a little piece of sandpaper. Super easy.
I found this little number at Hobby Lobby. After rolling my kitchen washcloths for a dozen years, I have switched to an old-fashioned stack next to the sink. So I was really pleased to find this shape & size. It just begged for a coat of a happier color.
We’ve had these topiaries for quite some time. Don’t remember where we got them, but they’ve been feeling pretty drab lately. Until now.
This is how I prepped each topiary before painting: Plastic bag and some tape protected the greenery. I wasn’t worried about paint getting on the moss because it needed to have a little fresh layer added on top anyway.
