Do you have that random object or tchotchke laying around that you love but it just needs some updating? Have you thought about spray painting it?
I have objects stashed away that I don’t even remember how or why I got them, others I bought them for 50 cents at a garage sale for some unknown reason other than my brain thinking I needed it for something.
Last week I was looking around for something to do, and I looked in a box in the closet and found a turtle that I bought on the cheap cheap at the Dutchess County SPCA yard sale. It was a cute turtle but it was dull and uninteresting. So I figured I could spruce it up with some bright spray paint.
After scouring and gathering some more odd objects I started my project.
Here are the items…
The first thing I did was prime the items with a spray painting primer. I almost didn’t prime them because I am a “lets get it done as quickly as possible” type of girl, but I figured it would only save me steps in the long run.
With the turtle and bird I decided to go with a bright orange, mostly because I had it on hand.
It was a quick two coats and a couple of hours drying time and now I have some very cute new accessories that I can’t wait to incorporate into one of my stagings.
What do you think?
