Why am I writing about something so lame? Because it’s what’s been going on. We’ve been working on small projects around the house and the whole reuse, recycle, reduce and its fun. We’ve been creative and have had a good time finding new uses for old pieces or just a unique use for a common piece.
Anyway, I decided that I would spray paint an old dresser to use in the playroom to brighten up the area and hide toys. I’ve used spray paint on little things like cork boards and vases and wanted to give Steve a break and thought, seriously how hard can spray painting be? Steve does it for EVERYTHING shy of walls. He has spray painted furniture, frames, tables, toys, cabinets. Well, now I know why it takes so long. It really is an art.
So after I emptied and dragged this big mama jamma down the stairs, out to the yard and onto the picnic table, this is the end result….Kerry’s end result that is.
These are the things I realized in that 20 minutes of frustration.
- I cannot do it
- So much harder than it looks
- Don’t do it in the wind
- Pay the extra for the cool spray paint cans with the ergonomically correct handle
- My wrists are weak and shaky for hours after
- Clean and sand piece first
- Taggers are truly amazing
- Steve should be a tagger
Steve has taken over by sanding and painting. There will be no chips, no streaks, and no ugly marks. It will look bright and beautiful! Thanks Steve….again….You ARE the spray paint master!
