OK, I'm guilty of being inspired by all the blogs that are transforming things with paint. I've been painting everything lately: tin vases, clay pots, picture frames ... you get the idea. One of the items was this tin box I've had for years. I use it to hold my Lipton tea bags. When I bought it, the finish was a distressed creme. One day I wanted it to be oil rubbed bronze, so I painted it. It didn't come out very well. It was too ugly to photograph. So, a few days ago I spray painted it black. Why not? I seemed to be painting everything in the house black ... Loved it ...
The problem is ... there was too much black on the counter.
So, I decided to paint it green. I used craft paint which was a little dull.
So, I distressed it a little with sandpaper. It looked a little better.
The black paint showing through makes it more interesting.
The center picture frame used to be gold. Painted that, too. I'm dangerous with a can of spray paint. Do you have the paint bug lately like I do? Or is it just me?
Thanks for stopping by,
