Just Call Me Trigger Happy

I was so excited to have a warm, non-windy day this week.  And you know what that means?

Spray paint!

I have been trigger happy;  itching to get my hands on cans of spray paint once again.  I decided to start on a smaller project and work my way up to harder projects.

Here's what I started on . . .

I originally bought this little table for $2.98.  If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll remember when I brought it home and spray painted it a hammered bronze color.  I used it for a while on my back porch, but decided to move to another space (are you surprised?).  The color wasn't working in it's new spot, so out came the spray paint.

I spray painted one coat of Rust-oleum's chrome colored paint on the base.  Then, in a flash of daring spray painting, I decided to paint the glass top as well.  I turned the glass upside down and sprayed the bottom side.  After the paint dried, I flipped it over and found that it had a wonderful frosted look to it.  The paint won't get scratched because it's hidden underneath. 

I'm liking it in the 2nd floor bathroom.  It may not stay there long because we have plans to remodel this bathroom when my health improves.

Are you getting trigger happy to paint anything in your home?


  1. I would love to learn to spray paint teach me how to do it, please!

    Painting on the back was genius!

  2. It looks great! I LOVE spray paint! You can pretty up almost anything with a little spray!

  3. I would have never thought to paint the underside of a glass table - very cool!

    I have an ugly metal folding chair that I'm using as a desk chair...I just may attempt to spray paint that!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
