I know this has been baby week (see Monday and Wednesday’s post for the goods) and while this is not just a baby post, you could definitely use it in a baby’s room or for a baby shower. So it fits… at least by my logic. 🙂
This is a tale of yet another spray painting adventure of mine… we all know how much fun spray paint is. Check out other spraying adventures here, here, here, here, and here. But this one’s a bit different because I didn’t just completely change the color of an item by adding a coat of paint- I tried my hand at a bit of detailing. Ooooo, fancy!
This project was great because it took very little time (10 minutes tops), very little effort (just get that trigger finger ready), and very little money (hoo.ray.). All that you’ll need for this project is something to spray paint, a bit of painters tape (I also used some Scotch tape), and spray paint in a color of your choosing.
Step 1: Tape off your design. For this project, I broke out a basket-y tray that I found for under a buck at a thrift store (hence, the “very little money” part). I decided to follow the shape of my woven platter and tape off a few rings so that there would be some in the wicker tone and some bright white ones. I don’t know if it was the type of painters tape I used, but mine wasn’t sticking all that well, so I gave it a bit of reinforcement with some Scotch.
Step 3: Peel off the tape and let it dry. When I peeled the outer most rim off, I discovered a bit of discoloration that I didn’t see before, so I decided to go ahead and cover it by spraying the entire (previously taped off) rim white as well.
Don’t you just love a quick and easy way to add a little interest? Yeah, me too.
Anyone else breaking out the ‘ole spray paint lately? Any intricate “taping off” tricks you can share with me? I’d love to hear…
