Ready for Spring

I’m ready for spring. Not because I hate winter, I don’t. I’m not one of those people who complains about the weather every day unless it’s bright and hot and sunny, and justthewaytheylikeit. I actually like cool, partly cloudy days. Super sunny days just make me squint so much I get that annoying bit of a headache right between the eyes that just gets more annoying when people are fawning all over how BEE-U-TEE-FULL the hot, blinding sun is.

Anywho, back to whatever point I was getting at.

Right, spring. I’m looking forward to spring because the weather will be warming up enough to get outside and spray paint again. I just got into this whole craze last year and got a few things painted. Seeing other bloggers find cool stuff at Goodwill and other thrift stores gets me itching to find some more treasures, too.

For example: Thrifty Decor Chick found this pitcher at Goodwill and made it so much better simply with paint.





It looks 30 years newer!

And another example from Sherry’s growing menagerie at Young House Love:


A year ago, I would have surely walked right past this thing in a thrift store. But Sherry made this dude totally strut like the bird he was always meant to be.


So, since I can’t spray paint yet, I have a little project I’ve been working on with slow-as-molasses-brush-or-roll-on paint. Hopefully I’ll have time to finish it in a day or two. And hopefully it won’t be lame. Have a project like these, or not like these, and want to share? Leave a comment and/or a link!

  1. I love Goodwill. It is an amazing place.

    I went through a phase this summer when I would buy broken/ugly statues from the clearance aisle in Hobby Lobby and papier-mache them with patterned tissue paper (also from Hobby Lobby). Someone even asked for one as a gift once. They looked weird, but groovy.
