Hooray, Hooray, A Spray Paint Party!!!

Joy over at JOYS OF HOME is having a spray paint party!


So, if you have a project to share, head on over to Joy's blog and add your party to the list!


Here are a few of my recent projects...


White Pumpkins:















Hammered Bronze Stair Railings:








Silver Frame and the letter R:






Homemade giftbox, in Ivy Green and Chalkboard paint, which is black, so is that against the rules? Probably. I'm a rebel:






I do truly wish that I would have painted something Aqua. I love Aqua. So, why have I not painted anything Aqua? Now I feel bad for Aqua. I must do something about this...

ttfn ;)

Ooh, can't wait to see what you paint next. The pumpkins are awesome! Just make sure it's aqua next time!

Justine :o )

Marie said...

I've never seen the silver frame before! Very cute! You know I love those pumpkins! :o) Heck, it's all great!

AND...I swear I had that Christmas popcorn can for years. I showed a picture of my kitchen a few months back and Mrs. B told me to spray paint it. I wasn't inspired to do it until I saw the picture in Ballards. lol I have tons of those popcorn tins. My kids probably eat 10 of them over the Christmas holidays (I wish I was lying!). They are in my garage full of Christmas lights, etc.

LOVE LOVE LOVE those pumpkins! Are they real or the styrofome (I can't spell.. too early in the morning) I want to do some white pumpkins too!

Cameo said...

You have some great ideas. I love the frame with the letter inside. So creative.

Hi deepfriedapples :)

I bought those pumpkins about 3 or 4 years ago from a craft store, they are very light, but I really don't know what material they are made out of. They were orange with a green stem, but over the years had faded quite a bit, because I put them outside in the garden to decorate with. I was going to throw them out and get new ones til I discovered spray paint ;)

White pumpkins seem to be elusive this year even though everyone seems to want them! Some have found some at The Dollar Tree. I found 2 pitiful ones at Walmart and then I got a little nicer one at Kohl's the other day, too. Good luck :)

I just bought some of those fake pumpkins at Michaels the other week. I'll keep the spray paint idea in mind for when they fade!

Joy said...

Bella, my girl, you are becoming the Spray Paint Queen! EVERY project looks professionally done. They would make for a great commercial on the wonders of spray paint---not just for crafts, but for home improvement projects as well. Wonderful job my dear!

Carrie said...

I love all of your projects! I love the pumpkins I did the samething last year. I love how you displayed them I think I might have to try something like that!

Bella,

Your so funny feeling sorry for aqua. Your spray painted items look great. I especially like the white pumpkins and I need to get some of that chalk board paint. There are so many things I could paint with that.

Those pumpkins are darling!! I am so ready for Fall. I just may break out the Fall decor when September gets here. I just can't justify it now. It's TOO hot!!
I also really liked your hammered bronze stairwell. My sister spray painted her rusted white patio table that color. It's very nice.

Good idea in painting that railing too. ;)

Thanks for stopping by at my place. :)

I love those pumpkins. They are a must do for me this season!!!

Thank you for the inspiration!

Angie said...

All your projects look great! I especially love those pumpkins. I got the rabbit topiary for $1 at a garage sale. I was wondering why in the world the lady was getting rid of it, but I sure am glad she did! The color in my guest bedroom is Cress Green by Olympic from Lowe's. It's a good green, not near as bright and limey like it looks in pictures.

Bobbie said...

Cant wait to see what you do with the aqua!!

Christina said...

Love all of your projects. I saw an ugly orange pumpkin (really cheap looking) at the thrift store last week. I wish I had thought of spray painting it. Wonderful.

Enjoy your blog.
