It’s no secret I love spray paint…and nothing in my house is safe from it. When we drug our outdoor stuff out of the shed at the beginning of the summer, my cute Crate and Barrel tables were no longer cute.
Rustoleum’s Key Lime has been taunting me for awhile, so I thought these tables were perfect for that little party-in-a-can! Oh, and this handle whoo–sie is genius, really! Save yourself from having an ever-present painted pointer finger, and hand cramp, and get this $6 clip-on.
splashing a little water washing off the grime, I gave them a coat of the glossy Key Lime. I came back out later for the second coat and found this….along with an empty can of Key Lime!
It might as well have been a chalk outline of a body! That is so typical Mr. Sugarplum….see something laying around, have brilliant idea, execute said idea with no preparation or consulting
the boss me! I mean, at least lay down a sheet!! I guess I’m lucky he didn’t do it directly on the driveway?! Anyway, my voice might have gotten a little shrill when I told him I still needed to give the tables a second coat, and “You used the rest of the paaaaaaaaaaiiiiint!” (insert nasal whine)
Being the sweetie he is, he
fled the house ran to Home Depot for another can.
They turned out pretty cute.
hate have to admit, Mr. Sugarplum’s project did too!
Oh, and some of you eagle-eyes may notice one of the tables looks a little different….um, yeah…I later went back and painted them Green Apple. But the sun is still Key Lime. What?! That’s the greatness of spray paint….Happiness in a Can!
