Spring has Arrived!
I spent the day outside yesterday working in the yard. I pulled all the dead stuff out of my garden and raked a ton of leaves. (I know, most people do those things in the fall. Oh well!) After all that work, I enjoyed my favorite (or at least one of my favorite) parts of spring - spray paint! Spray painting is just one of those things that you can not do around here in the winter. Trust me I've tried, it doesn't work. Its just too stinking cold. And sometimes, you just can't beat spray paint in a project! This was definitely one of those cases. We got a hand-me down set of little kid table and chairs from my sister. It was adorable, but filthy!
She had tried everything she could to clean it as had I. Everything. Bleach, Magic Eraser, everything. It has a wood grain texture in the plastic and it was just not coming clean. So it was begging for a coat of paint! I used Krylon spray paint that is specific for plastic. Its a little spendy (almost $4 a can) but well worth it. It worked like a dream. Here is our after shot!
Bright fire engine red! I love it! I think we will be taking our lunch outside from now on!
