We're Painting!

I've been on a spray painting kick lately - I bought galvanized pails at the dollar store, spray painted them black, the pink planter was purchased there too, it was green and it's plastic,  the paint really perked it up!   I also spray painted the little green chairs, they were black. Regular paint was out too, I painted the entire deck and also the little plant stand.

A couple of weeks ago I salvaged this retro red lawn chair, from the dump - I have NEVER brought anything home from there before, but I just had to rescue this chair - I spray painted it green!!  

This little birdbath had seen better days, the pedestal broke so my husband attached it to an old can and I spray painted it!!!

Nothing is safe at our place - everything here (except the picture) was spray painted to match our new cupboard handles.  What a saving that turned out to be - we have two light fixtures and two vents in the kitchen - that would have easily been $200-$300 to replace.

We have been working on a partial kitchen renovation for four months, finally, it's done!!   More painting!!!  

We made this corner shelf out of an extra door we had - my husband made the shelves, I did the painting and while I was at it, painted this kitchen shelf.

I wonder if there's anything else I can spray paint???

I'm linking up to Tell it to Me Tuesday - there's ideas galore over there....

It's Wednesday and that means Rednesday -it's great!


  1. Great idea on the corner shelf!

  2. Wow Jill! You really have been on a painting kick! It all looks great too! Your kitchen reno really turned out nice!

  3. your door shelf is so adorable! Ok I want to see your finger..what color is it? When I spray paint I always get paint on my index finger!

  4. I've been DYING to see what color you painted your chair. I love the green!!! Makes me re-think what color I am going to have my husband paint mine:-)

  5. I adore how the chair turned out. What a perfect color! I love to paint... but hate sanding.

  6. Gosh! You make me want to get out my spray paint! And I would have grabbed that chair from the dump, too! It looks so pretty green! I love all your upgraded painted items. And the kitchen is looking pretty! Love the door turned shelves, what a winning idea!

  7. It is amazing what people just throw away. LOOK AT THAT CHAIR! It's beautiful now. I not only have brought home stuff from the dump but from the curb in front of homes on trash day too. Much to my husbands embarrassment!

  8. Wow, can I drop off some things I have been wanting to get painted at your house? LOL Everything looks grea. Happy Rednesday!

  9. Oh my gosh! So much awesome craftiness going on over here! I *love* the green chair and your corner cabinet is so cool! What a great idea; I'm going to have to pin it!

  10. Your hard work paid off as everything looks very nice.

  11. What a wonderful post! Love that corner shelf!
    Happy Rednesday!

    Spray paint is wonderful!
    Love the chair. I have picked a couple of chairs like that curbside.
    The shelf from the cupboard doors is terrific! I will have to show Mister that....we've got some like that and have repurposed them already, but still have some leftover. Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. I would have rescued the chair, too :)

  14. Wow - I am so impressed! And inspired! :-)
