Spray paint is vogue.
Tables, dishes, dressers, chairs, windows, tree branches~
everything is fair game for DIY’ers with itchy trigger fingers.
Sometimes, I worry about their kids, especially if they stand still
while watching their color-their-world parent with aerosol can in hand.
They could end up Smurf blue or Minion yellow.
But, I just want ya’ll to know,
I was spray paint,
when spray paint wasn’t cool.
In the early 90’s, I spray painted thrift store baskets glossy white for baby gifts.
A patio table I acquired curb shopping was given new life along with some ugly outdoor chairs.
Yea, I was way ahead of my time.
Back then, when I went into the hardware store for spray paint,
they usually wrinkled their bulbous noses and superior brows at me,
and told me it couldn’t be done.
Spray paint comes in prettier colors and covers better,
and salesmen like to encourage, not discourage, useage.
With all my expertise, it was only natural that I create something unique.
I began with this plain ol’ can.
The painful job was eating all those chocolately cookies.
I don’t think I shared the misery with my family,
I handled this one on my own.
Of course, I had to use this Rust-Oleum product.
It was actually Mitzi’s blog that inspired the craft. Isn’t she talented?
I love her generosity in sharing her printables and her ideas.
The vintage coffee labels make we wanna’ Mod Podge everything in my house.
I printed my favorite images onto cardstock.
Oh, yea, another staple in my random crafting life.
The look of this vintage label on the black tin made me love, love, love coffee even more.
What special people am I crafting for?
The same people who got this match box tin.
I have one more wedding present crafting to share with you…
…meanwhile, all these vintage coffee labels are making me crave a cuppa’ coffee…
