I'm back with the spray painting again!
This shelving unit (I can't remember if we got it in NZ or UK), was a dark brown wood before.
I did a few coats on the outside and just one coat on the backing board.
I like how you can still see the knots and grain through the paint.
Being a lighter colour, it has really opened up the space in our living area now.
I also repainted some of our old dining room chairs.
(I originally painted them white about 12 years ago
when I was pregnant with the eldest).
I've used an outdoor paint so that some of
these chairs can go with the garden table.
And these are two of the second hand chairs we got a few months ago - with new coats on!
I love this blue, it went on really well. The yellow looks good too, but it was a nightmare
to spray on compared to the other colours I've been using. It dripped really easily,
so there are patches I need to sand over and do again.
(see the other chairs I've already done here)
Here's a bit more yellow for you -
some pineapple jellys setting for the little one (and her big sis)
who is not well at the mo.
I think that mixing things up a bit and stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing.
Have a go at something a little different, even if it is still within your genre.
Push past the frustration barrier and keep going.
Also - always have something at hand, to jot down new ideas
or inspirations where ever you are. Either a notebook or sometimes
I use Evernote on my phone, which is great for lots of lists.
(including the shopping list)
Thanks to Leonie for my gorgeous new notebook -
I love the tape measure page finder!!xx
