One Night Only..

we only have 'til dawn! HA! Weeeelllll one day really. I spent my whole Sunday painting, sanding, & priming furniture & everything else under the sun. It was in the 60's and I couldn't pass up warm day of straight painting. Thank goodness I didn't, it started raining Monday. Anyone else have good weather?



Here is a dresser I finished. It just needs a slab of beveled mirror & some huge shiny gold ring knobs to finish it off. I used spray primer instead of can primer & it worked like a dream.

I had some problems though. I was using Rustoleum Professional white spray paint & it was a total disappointment!!! Actually to say it nicely a pisser offer. After sanding and priming this is what happened.



It kept spraying out as an opaque yellow runny hot mess or in chunks. After trying 4 cans, yes 4 count 'em cans, of this mess I returned them for some Valspar. I'm starting to like Valspar more + more by the day. Did you take advantage of the warm weather this weekend? I sure did!! And I have a hurting back to prove it :o)

p.s. Bazaar of Serendipity is having a FAB giveaway!

I'm so jealous! I can't wait until the weather turns warmer and I can get out my BFF, spray paint, again.

Girl, the weather was BEAUTIFUL this weekend, and it sucks now. I got to do a little something, but not much because I was EXHAUSTED from company.

Don't know what happened with that paint--sounds like it may have been on the shelf for awhile . . .

Me and spray paint don't mix - I try to avoid it! I feel your paint...the black dress is looking nice

I would LOVE to have 60 degree weather but we've got a ways to go before we get that here! I'm jealous that you got to paint outside. :-) Congrats on getting so much done.
