    I love spray paint! Yesterdays yard sale find was a beautiful little vanity for my 6 y.o. daughter. A friend of mine had given me a 30 y.o. metal chair for her to use. You should have seen the poor cushion, tons of masking tape to attempt to keep it on and lots of rust. It’s so funny how people don’t realize that with a screwdriver, fabric, staple gun and a can of spray paint gives you an awesome new item.

    OH thank you thank you! I have a bunch of cans of spray paint. 3 shelves, 2 picture frames, a Texas basket, a grapevine wreath. I want to paint them all but end up just staring at them and the spray paint. I get so nervous because I have never done this before. Thank you for posting this!! 🙂
