Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving everyone. Why does it seem like it takes 2 minutes to eat and way longer than that to clean up?

Spray Painting Part 2

I went outside yesterday in the freezing cold to get another spray paint project done before it snows. This is a lamp that I bought at Home Depot last year. It looked like it was a dark brown finish in the store but after I brought it home and finished assembling it I realized that it was a cherry finish and matched absolutely nothing. So out came the black satin finish paint that I used on the mirror in my previous post...voila, "new" lamp!

Spray Paint Virgin

Yes, that's right, I had my first foray into spray painting last night. It was dark out and damp, not the best conditions, but I just couldn't wait. I was quite tired of this distressed blue framed mirror in my entrance so satin black was calling out to me. I then sprayed and old urn that I had and I have more things that I'd like to spray...a filing cabinet, a floor lamp and possibly some picture frames. I have to do something with the urn, possibly stick one of my pumpkins in it and a little moss. I'll post a picture when it's done.
