Paint Party!!!

Joy from Joys of Home is having a Paint Outside The Black box. party. Go check out her site to see what she has done with spray paint and what other bloggers have done too!

I have used spray paint for almost a year. Love it since it's quick and no brush strokes. Now I know this party is for color only spray paint but I've only done one color so far. The rest I have painted in black. Here's some of the projects I have done with spray paint.

If you have never used spray paint, you should try it. It can be addictive since now you see things with a different eye. Things that look cute but have the wrong color can now be changed to the color you want. Just remember these tips.

1) Remove your jewlery.

2)Use a latex disposible gloves. You'll thank me later for this one.

3)Have some paint removal in case you forgot about tip #2.

Now go to your local hardware store and get a can of paint. Have fun painting!

A bientot!

Love the little red chairs. The chair looks great and so updated with black legs.

I love the red chairs! I also really like the stand that you painted and added the straps to. What a clever idea.

That's a great way to extend the life of those outdoor chairs and amke them match. They look great in red.

I painted the legs of a chair that's similar to yours. Isn't it amazing how painting the legs black makes the entire chair look so much better. Your chair looks so classy now. And what a great way to give that stand a makeover with paint and new sassy straps! Great job!

Your patio chairs are great! I've used that Krylon paint on some patio chairs before and was pretty happy with the result. Great projects!

Love everything you painted. They all look brand new! Isn't paint wonderful? Now everything you look at you think of the possibility because you look at what it could be, not what it is.
