Finally, we had a day nice enough to do some spray painting! It's so hard to wait for all those project that I come up with in my head, that seem urgent, but of course, the weather is not nice here in Wisconsin!
It almost seemed decieving when the thermometer in the truck said that it as 63 degrees at noon on the way home from church! So here was my first project that I needed to do. I picked these up from a friend that no longer wanted them. I couldn't leave free ... but they were really ugly!I decided to start with the three best ones, the first two on the left and the forth one. Because they were already painted a dark color, I decided not to use primer on them. The burgundy/purple/brown color was darker than the grey primer I had, so why go lighter to get darker?
It was a bit windy, but since I really shouldn't be doing this while pregnant, I figured the wind made it more ventilated! Right? Anyway, I was again reminded why I love spray paint!
Just an update - I did go ahead and add the numbers with white acrylic paint. I used my Cricut to cut 5 inch numbers and 3 1/2 inch "no." I then traced it onto the milk cans a tried to fill it in. Now, please be gentle with your criticism of my paint job. I am too
I hope you enjoy the results!
