Spray Painters Anonymous... The Blooming Hydrangea

**Before we begin this weeks meeting a quick announcement**
I am currently scheduling Spray Painters Anonymous meetings for the month of May!  If you are interested please contact me!  And now on with the meeting...

Tiffany, thank you for this opportunity for me to come clean about my addiction. I've tried to hide it from the neighbors by spray painting in the garage but it's no use. Someone found this picture from last spring when I was finally reunited with spray paint after a long hard winter and the news spread quickly. What can I say, it's hard living in the mid-west spending winters apart from they paint in a can that I love.

My love of spray painting really grew this summer after we moved and I was able to find all sorts of great buys on CL. My first victim just weeks after moving was this dresser for $75.

For a paint color I decided to go bold and blue, Night Tide by Rustoleum in Gloss Enamel was a perfect choice. This dresser turned tv console/buffet is my favorite piece of furniture in my home. It always receives compliments from guests and looks fabulous with most other colors. You can see her hiding in the background in this most recent picture.

It's now being used in my daughter's bedroom as her bedside table. The green is kind of fun and funky. I also spray painted her bed frame a bright yellow by Rustoleum. I am in the final stages of this room, maybe I'll be revealing it today on my blog, or maybe not.

Finally, for just a quick paint job, I found a pair of thrift store lamps for $6 and with a little bit of white spray paint they went from blah to beautiful. I love them in our master bedroom!

Thank you Tiffany for giving me a place to feel welcomed and accepted, a place to come and share my addiction with people who understand and also have fingers and maybe even toes that are covered with paint.

Ha!  Yes I have been there!  And spray paint is the hardest to come off... even with vegetable oil!  I LOVE Night Tide.. that is the same color as my dressers in my master.  It is my favorite color!

Be sure to check out Ange blog:

She is also a participant in the Color My World Challenge!  She picked Chartreuse!  And she has been doing a wonderful job with it!

And now let us all repeat the Spray Painters Mantra:
Friends, help me source all the items I am searching for but can not find.
Give me the vision to think outside of the box and remember the can of spray paint,
and bless me with the patience to let each of the coats dry before I move on to the next step!

Cookies and coffee are in the back! =)

If you need support for your spray painting addiction and would like to "attended" a meeting 
please contact me!

We always love to know other addicts, and can always use more inspiration for our projects!

We just adore Ange and it was so fun to come over and read her post here! I'm loving the yellow bed for her daughter's room and can't wait until she reveals the whole thing. That foot picture was hysterical!! :-)

Lisa Scibilia said...

Those feet - that is hilarious!
Love that peacock blue dresser!

The blue is gorgeous! I'm currently spray painting a vintage rattan dining table a deep, almost primary yellow, to go in my very, very white house. Thirty bucks for the table and about the same for the paint -- pretty reasonable investment in my book. Loved this post. Can't wait to try more projects.
