Spray Paint Is The Bomb!

I am so silly and forgot to take a before picture. Right when I pushed my finger down and started to spray, I thought, "duh". But anyhoo, I sort of have a before picture from a previous blog entry so at least that will give you a very small idea of what the little wicker table looked like before:

And after! Have I mentioned that I love spray paint?

It turned out to be the perfect color of red. It definitely perks up the kitchen.

As for the kitchen, my project is to paint a chalkboard on the wall. Now, follow me here for a minute. I am sure you are thinking that is a very strange idea. But, I am not entirely crazy, I have seen the concept in Cottage Living and it looks really cute. You will soon see! Unfortunately, I was waylaid today when I realized that I can't put chalkboard paint on a textured wall because then when you try to write on it, it will look bumpy. So, I am going to have to sand paper the wall. Ugh. I did, however, get the frame for the chalkboard painted with the same red spray paint that I used for the table. I think I just may have this project completed by the end of this week! Stay tuned!

I've been wanting to make a little chalkboard area on the wall in the kid's room but haven't because of the texturing. The green paint in their room was mixed in my backyard with different leftover paint I had so i'm afraid it can't be recreated if I make a big mistake. Let me know how it goes. It's going to be SO cute. I can totally visualize it. Your kitchen is already adorable. Can't wait to see a post about your entire completed kitchen!

I was looking for a project for the house but I was not ready to invest a lot of time. This is something that I have wanted to do for a while and so far it is super easy! Had I planned ahead a little better, I could have gotten it done days ago and probably only in a matter of hours. If I have left over chalkboard paint, it's yours! I can see your boys spending hours drawing on the wall, they will love it! What great entertainment for kiddos! Now my house will be super kid friendly!
