White Spray Paint



Here’s the after:

Here’s the before:

What do you think?  Isn’t it cute!  When I saw it sitting there, I just knew that she was coming home with me :)

I cleaned her up, primed and painted with a flat white.  

I added some Christmas sparkle and a bow.  I’m loving the greens, blues and naturals this year, did you see my pinecones?

I can see her sitting beside the fireplace.

She’d look great as a centerpiece on a large table!

Placed outside the front door.

She’s waiting for you at the store :)  And she’d look great anywhere!  

Where were you put her?

    I absolutely LOVE this! I have been insisting we keep moving my childhood tricycle with us and my husband just keeps looking at me with this confused look as he keeps finding space for it in the back of the garage or storage unit over the years. I keep telling him I’ll know what to do with it when the time comes. FINALLY I have something adorable to do with it. Thank you so much! How much of the rust did you have to remove before painting it? What did you use to prepare it for painting? This will be such a nice addition to our decor and a sweet memory for me. We just moved into our current home so it is perfect timing.

    Pure genius and so unbelievably cute! Totally makes me wish I hadn’t just thrown away Landon’s little Radio Flyer trike because the seat was broken. Darn it! ;)

    That is beyond cute! I’d put on the hearth so I could sit and gaze at her all day long, but she’d be adorable by the front door! Love it!

    Super duper cute! Such a great idea. It could even be used for outside with a plant on the seat. I would put it on my front porch for sure at Christmas!
