I am sooo addicted to spray paint. One you create a masterpiece it’s hard not to wanna make more. I decided I would take this Bud Light Lime bottle and a Guinness bottle and turn them into vases.
Here they are before paint..
They came out sooo cooool.
I bought these cute…. uhhh…. ugly owls through facebook and I knew they would turn out great. I showed them to Nathan and my friends and I think they might have barfed a little when they saw these little guys. OK maybe they didn’t barf but they did say “Ughhh those are really ugly!!”. I know that but wait till you see how cute they will be afterward.
Here they are again with this camera that I bought at goodwill for $2. That turned out awesome too.
Next I primed them all with Valspar.
Then came the color!!
This is what I used on the camera.
Look how cute they are! They have some weird texture in the paint. I cleaned all the dirt off of them before I painted them so there might have been a texture on them before I painted. Or maybe I didn’t shake the can enough. Either way they are still cute.
I made the Love and Create words too. Yes that does say Love and not lave or Joe. When I wrapped the yarn I kinda combined the o and the v and it looks like an “a”. It is on my list to redo.
And the camera AFTER…..
For now the camera lives on our buffet. I haven’t really decided if he will stay there or not.
Have you taken something ugly and old and made it beautiful? I’d love to see what you did.
Sherry over at young house love and Katie over at Bowerpower have whipped up the third pinterest challenge. The idea of this project is to get you to stop pinning and to finally do a project.
I saw this picture through pinterest and I’ve been wanting to do it for a while now. The original post is here. Instead of either of our dogs (I have no good pictures yet) I have chosen a picture of my cat. I have plans to hang four pictures (Oliver the cat, Thomas the cat, Pepper the dog and Bella the dog) together in the hallway.
My supplies for this project were a 10 x 10 canvas and yellow paint that I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. It was $5.39 with a 40% off coupon and the canvas was on sale. Wooo hooo. Ya can’t beat that!!
First I went to my computer and printed off this image. I caught Oliver and Thomas checking out a squirrel and making chirping noises at it.
Then I cut it out, taped it to the canvas and traced around the picture.
Take off the image and this is what you get.
Next I painted the outside area yellow and Oliver in white. I don’t know why I bothered painting it white because it was already white.
All done!!! That was so easy! I absolutely love it!
Have you done this before? What have you used for your silhouette?
