Project 1 was turning this old desk that sits in the foyer into something less hideous. I LOVE antique maps though, which is the design that resides on the top of the ol' gal. I followed my friends on all their blogs and taped off the top:
Onto to #2. The Christmas Tree Shop $6 each shelves.
Cheap? Yes. But how adorable would they be in the purple guest room if they were....
And voila. 2 silver shelves to be installed on the purple wall of our guest room. Some tips I learned while I messed up my own furniture.
1. Keep the spray nozzle about 8 inches away from whatever you're spraying.
2. Don't use TOO MUCH spray on any one area. It drips and drizzles and with a metallic paint, the marks will always show :(
3. It has wide range, so move EVERYTHING out of a 5 foot range that you don't want to turn silver (or color of your choosing. Puce? sure). I especially advise this with cameras. Don't ask me how I know that. Ask my new silver dotted camera.
4. Don't wear flip flops....
That is my foot, still covered in silver paint 2 days after the fact. Plus flip flop line. My foot looks like the Crypt Keeper's foot. Gray/silver isn't a good look for human flesh.
Good luck, kids!
