While I was getting the paint for the lanterns, I realized I should grab some black paint since my brassy fireplace tools have been bugging me for years. Monday it was raining and windy, so when the sun was shining yesterday I decided to take advantage of it. After taping up my lanterns and laying out my stuff, I started spraying away. Although I have spray painted a few items in the past, for some reason I was really enjoying this. Talk about instant gratification -- I'm all about it!! I enjoyed it so much, I started walking around the house and grabbing things and spraying them. I did an old step stool that was white...made it black, I did a brass lamp that I had, and I think I'm going to go for round 2 in the next few days...LOL!!
I had to stop myself from spray painting my whole kitchen...it was so fun! Don't forget the $$$$ I saved by doing this. Similar lanterns at Pottery Barn start at around $40 and a new fireplace set would probably cost me around $40. I got 4 lanterns for $6 and a can of spray paint is around $5...yay! Stay tuned for some more reveals... In the meantime, spray paint therapy -- I recommend it!!
