As it is a holiday here in my part of the world, and very shortly I will be helping to revamp and revive Lily and Liam’s tree fort, I will be keeping this post brief.
— BEFORE —
Lily picked up this handsome fella at a garage sale for only 25 cents (you can read more about some of the incredible deals and discoveries we have made in recent months in Deals + Discoveries + Decisions or Deals + Discoveries + Decisions: Liam’s Bedroom).
Well, take a look at Twiggy after a spray paint makeover…
— AFTER A GRAND REVIVAL —
I used a spray paint colour called Smoke Blue (from Home Hardware); this shade goes well with the blue I used on Lily’s bedside table, Benjamin Moore’s Fiji.
To prepare for this quick and inexpensive project, I decided to consult an expert, Ms. Sherry Petersik of Young House Love, who’s obsession with ceramic animals is totally adorable. Here are the simple instructions that I followed when painting the Twigster.
Spray painting ceramic animals is relatively easy and pain-free. However, I am beginning to realize that spray painting is seriously addictive (old ceramic decor beware!, lol). To view how I magically transformed a vintage ornate mirror with spray paint, check out my post Mirror Magic, or How-To Spray Paint an Ornate Mirror.
Okay, I really should go help Michael with the tree fort now. Good luck with your spray painting adventures — do share any tips or advice you have.
Revive ya later!!!
