44th Power of Paint Party and Ball Basket

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome Paint Lovers!!!

The last few days we’ve had beautiful weather here in So. Cal., so I had some fun spray painting… I think it’s been months since I spray painted!!!  It’s either been too hot or raining… I just love spray paint, mainly because it’s SO EASY!

A few months ago I found on Craigslist a listing for FREE after garage sale goodies.  (Late Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon is a great time to watch Craigslist for these freebies).

I found a fern basket with a fake fern in it on the driveway.

Me, being a bad paint blogger, forgot to take a before photo… I’m blaming it on my sick, medicated self (I’ve been battling a cold again since last week).  You’ll have visualize with me… but it was a hunter green.

Here it was after I spray painted it with 1 coat of Valspar’s Aluminum spray paint.  You can see a little of the green peaking through.

I wanted to put all of my son’s baseball game balls in here… so the ivy had to go!

I just took a pliers to it!

Perfect ball display… and free!

So what have you been painting?
