Spray Paint

Spray Paint…

Sometimes all you need is a tarp and a can of spray paint to change your world, or something like that.

I’ve had these for a while, I think they were some shade of green when I first bought them.

I used Krylon Satin Ivory for this project.

This is a large ceramic candle holder.  I think Kim from Savvy Southern Style has two similar ones.  Nothing wrong with the color. I just needed a change.

After the paint dried, I mixed a little Medium Gray Folk Art paint with water and brushed over my spray painted pieces.

It brought out the imperfections of the pieces.

I like the effect of the color wash.

What do you think?

These two are above my cabinets.

And this one is holding a candle.

You can spray paint anything.  At least that’s what I believe.

Did you see this that I recently painted with Spray Chalky Paint? <<<click there.

Using spray paint and an acrylic paint is an easy way to create this look.

  • Clean your piece well.
  • Spray according to the directions on the container. This is very important, I know from experience.
  • Water down your choice of craft paint
  • After the piece has completely dried, take a chip brush or old t-shirt and wash piece with craft paint.
  • Wipe off excess
  • Let it dry and refresh your space with the renewed piece.

    I think you just tripled it’s value. It now looks like it came from some old country estate. I may not pass over those ugly colored candle holders I find at Goodwill!
