Spray Paint Magic

I love, love love, to change things with spray paint! Here's proof.
 The watering can wasn't always red. I found it at Marshalls, but it definitely needed some color. So, I went to my painting cabinet and pulled out some primer a paint.


I had this little table outside on my patio in the woods that I had never even put a sealer on so it ended up looking like this.


I painted the watering can first and loved it, so I put it out on my newly spruced up deck.



But, after seeing how bright the red was, I just couldn't paint the little table with it. So, it sits out on the patio in the woods still painted primer grey.  I think I like it. What do you think? Should I just be BOLD and paint it red or should I find a light blue and paint over the primer grey???

  3. Wow I really liked the red and Think I would be bold and do the table red and I'm not even a red person...but It really looks great on the watering can and I think it would pop more color with the two chairs and not blend with it...Just my thought on it. But I am stepping out with bolder colors this year on my patio...With oranges..
    Can't wait to see what you do with it..
    Have a wonderful day.

  19. SO CUTE! The table looks really nice blue and would look great with the watering can. What kind of spray paint did you use for the watering can? Every time I use spray paint on galvanized metal it scratches off:( Any advice is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
