Craft Paint and Brush
I love to make something old new again with a little paint. I don't consider myself a creative person in the sense of having an idea and knowing how to execute it. The executing part is where I have problems. I come from a long line of very creative and talented people but I think it stopped with me. I have realized that I am a wiz with a can of spray paint. I discovered this purely by accident when one day I just got up the nerve and picked up a can and started to paint. My advice is to grab a can of spray paint and start spraying something big like a metal chair. You can practice getting the feel of how to spray paint.
Metal Wall Hanging Before Spray Paint
I picked up this metal sun wall hanging at a garage sale a few years ago. I still really like it but recently I changed my family room accent color over to silver. I decided I would spray paint the sun silver. I am pleased with how it come out.
Metal Wall Hanging AFTER Spray Paint
Another treasure I picked up at a sale was this (hum...not sure what you call this) art piece. I liked the overall design but knew I had to give it a little make-over with silver paint. I enlisted my mom's talents. I told her my idea and asked her to paint it for me. She used craft paint and a paint brush to accomplish this. I love this piece now and it works so well in my family room.
