Today I stopped by D. I. to find a few glass items.
I needed them for a bridal shower I am throwing for my soon to be new DIL.
Of course, you can’t just leave with what you went for.
I went out into the yard area. Look what I found.
Three of these little iron metal thingy’s. (For lack of a better word.)
Only one of them was marked $1. The cashier asked me if it was $1 for all three or $1 ea. I told him that I really didn’t know because only one of them was marked. He replied, “I’m feeling generous today, you can have them all for $1. What a bargain!
I decided to stop by Walmart on my way home and pick up some spray paint.
I wasn’t sure what color I wanted to paint them. Then I spied this.
Spray paint in hand I immediately went to work.
I stuck them here and there for a little pop of color.
When I was finished I thought, “Hmm, why stop there.”
I have a child’s Adirondack piece that I ordered years ago from Lillian Vernon.
It was starting to fall apart and hubby wanted me to toss it.
I couldn’t part with it. The toddlers always love sitting in it.
A few years ago my cousins hubby refurbished it for me. He sanded it, but I told him I would paint it.
Why not spray it too?
I almost forgot to take a before pic.
Here it is half and half.
As I was spraying it I found that I really liked how It looked with just one coat. You could see a bit of the sanded area.
What do you think?
It found a new home under our pergola.
Just so happens that we have two grandies that are 18 and 22 months old.
They are going to love this!
It is just their size. Don’t you agree?
