Spray Paint


Yesterday started my week of home improvement. :) I got my barstools touched up with spray paint. My kids are hard on them and we use them every day so they were looking a little worse for wear. They look so much better now!


If you're going to use spray paint for more than about 5 seconds, be sure and get one of these handy sprayer trigger thingys. They're cheap and worth it to save your hands.

And by the way, did I mention that in addition to preparing for guests, we are hosting a cookout for 16 people this Saturday? I'm off to Sam's.

I've hardly made a dent in my list of projects for the week. I'll be sure and keep you updated on how everything is going.

Good tip! :) I may need to invest in one of those now that I've discovered the joys of spray painting. ;)

Good luck with everything!! I've been decorating my home like crazy myself. Getting ready for all the spring get-togethers. I will have to invest in one of those, thanks so much for posting. I'll go today to find it, so I can paint my little table.

The chairs look fantastic. It's amazing how a little bit of paint can go a long way. Happy shopping

Just found your site, adorable, fun, and great job on those chairs! I was a stay at home mom of 6 for almost 17 years before I had to crank up my career again. I miss being home but hubby is unemployed. We home school and our youngest is 10. I am so thankful for all the years I did have at home. Enjoy...
