Here's the results of being locked up in the garage for the better part of a week with lots of spray paint.
I have what may end up being a permanent headache and I can't imagine how I'm ever gonna get all that overspray paint *dust* off everything in the garage (including my vehicle) but....I did get a lot done.
I thought I was doing so good just using what I had on the paint shelf, but in all honesty I may have bought nearly as many cans this week as I already had.
For the yellow crib and the green drawers I used that new Krylon H20 Latex spray. Coming out of the can is kind of sketchy, but once I figured out how to work with it I liked the results. And the colors.
So I put together all the odd bits of furniture I've been picking up over the years with several cans of spray paint. Heading to a crafty sort of tag sale/flea market this weekend. It runs both days but I'll only be there Saturday. If you live local you should drive on down! It's about 45 miles south of Eureka, on the main drag (Avenue of the Giants) in Redcrest. It will also be very nearly 45 degrees hotter than it is here, too. Strange, I know! Anyway, it should be a nice day with nice people. And fun stuff to buy!
Quick thanks to Sue, antique expert and right-there-when-you-need-her friend among other things. I'd bought this shelf thinking I'd paint it, too; but luckily thought to run it by Sue first.
It's almost 3 feet tall. She suggested that it is California made furniture from the 30's -40's and would best be left as is and sold as folk art. Do you have any other ideas about it? Here's the back.
Okay. That's it for now. Gonna go see if I can cram all this stuff in my (overpainted) vehicle!
