Spring...

Happy Monday folks! So, Spring has finally sprung around here. Snow is nowhere in our forecast for the first time in weeks. In honor of the weather, I thought I would bring back one of my favorite blogging series - the Before and Afters! Remember those? No? Anyway, if you've been reading my blog for a while or you know me personally you may know that once Spring appears I am running outside with a project and a can of spray paint. Spray paint and Spring go hand in hand around here. [Side note, I've tried my hardest to spray paint in the winter - just don't do it. 'Nuf said. I've also tried to convince my husband to build me a ventilated spray booth in our laundry room...he said he's working on it...] We'll start out small with the before and afters and hopefully I can finish up a few more and share them with you this week. Not all will be spray painted, but honestly I love the stuff!

BEFORE: Saved from my Mother in laws donate pile.


AFTER: Cute artwork for Sydney's room.

Cost: About 50 cents for the scrapbook paper (which I only used 1/2 of) so let's called it a quarter!

I'm looking forward to seeing more 'before and after' ideas from your creative mind.

Love the picture - such a cute idea. I might have to try.

And I don't think the spray booth in the laundry room is really out of the question - seems reasonable to me!
