My New BFF {White Spray Paint}

So I am normally obsessed with black spray paint, I know, I know.   I know that I normally think white spray paint is just so bright and just doesn’t go with my decor. 

Well maybe this is because I have never tried spray painting anything white.  I just grab up my safe black.

I stepped outside of my black paint comfort zone and I have found a new BFF!

Look what it did to these ugly gold birds…

Oh so much better! 

And this frame, I didn’t snap a before photo, but it was silver and gold and not pretty!  A little white paint, vinyl lettering and scrapbook paper….Ahhh.  Clean, crisp and just right!

The vase behind it, yep spray painted it white too!  Those are some hydrangeas from the yard.  I just loved that green color that they were!

Here is the whole little shabang I put together on the chest in our bedroom.  That frame thing on the wall is a carriage that was brown and gold!  OH MY!  (not the good oh my!)  Scrapbook paper is runner up at being my bestest girlfriend!july 2009 009

You did a great job. I love the frame! My new love is scrapbook paper too because I can use it in more places than just scrapbook. I'm sure the black spray paint will understand.

Love the birds! I confess I hate spray painting (it cramps my hands really bad) but I always do it. I've got loads of colors in the garage but always find myself going back to the same three colors. ;) ha

Love the birds! I seem to always reach for white. Not much black in my house for some reason.
