Black desk

I found this black desk off of craigslist. I finally just barley got around to fixing it up. Sadly i forgot to take a before picture of it. Before it was just a solid wood color. 

I sanded it all down and started to spray it with krylon black spray paint in the glossy finish. I love the end result. I love the look that spray paint gives. 

I was sad to part with this gem. But it was way to big for our little home.
If you have a project you have done please send it in to

This old vintage high chair is amazing. I think we can all agree on that. Valary did an amazing job on it. I love the look of this and that color is to die for.

My best by yet...... This thing cost me a whole $1! Yep that s right. You got to love Dollar day at goodwill!

This was so nasty when i found it.! I sanded it down really good than started painting it! I cant remember the paint i used on it! 
I ended up giving it a distress look by taking sand paper around the edges and scraping off some of the paint. Sometimes i like to you my fingernail to! Sounds gross but gives it a different look!

This was our headboard a while back! I decided to sell it to earn some extra cash!
I had spray painted it with krylon white semi-gloss! It only took me 1 can to spray it!

I still love this headboard! I kind of miss it now looking at it!

Chalkboard Banner

Chalkboard Pennant Banner

 So easy and so fun.


Here s the supplies you'll need:

Chalkboard Spray Paint ($2.50 clearance at Michaels)
12 Chipboard Pennants (from $1.50 for 4 from StudioCee)
I sprayed them all down with two coats
Let them dry for a day.

Then using Sisal Twine, I weaved in & out through the pennants, wrote on them, and hung them!
Super easy like i said and really fun.. Be creative with it and you could really use this for all type of holidays,events, and birthday parties!

Here is our Family Picture Wall! My friend helped me piece this together when we first moved into our house.

I couldn't find a before picture but just picture this wall with some brown frames, black frames and white frames! 
I was sick of this look and decided to try something different one day! after several attempts of actually painting them by hand i finally decided to use spray paint!

I bought 1 can of Krylon and sprayed them! I love the end results and i love them all the same color! Now i just need to actually updated our pictures!  

If you have a project you spray painted.. Please send it in to us at

3 steps

This was one project i did over the weekend and i sprayed the whole thing with just 2 cans of Krylon spray paint! 
I know i still am shocked that i only went through 2! I bough 4 thinking i was going to need it!

Before this dresser was HOT PINK! 

Here s the steps i did!!!

1. Sanded the whole thing. I tried to get as much of the hot pink color off as i could.

2. I used Kilz prime spray paint from krylon!  I sprayed that all over!

3. Once the primer dried i was ready to go on spray painting!  I used Kryon white Glossy finish!

3 very easy steps anyone can do! I am very happy with the way it turned out and so is my daughter

Friday, June 10, 2011


Okay i cant tell you enough how much i love this brand! I use spray paint on just about everything!! Headboards,picture frames, desk,dressers,benchs and even our kids picnic table outside!

I have tried other brands of spray paint. But they always come our very streaky to me!I have never had a problem when using Krylon! Its the only one i will use now!

I can go on and on about this and how much i love it. But i wont. We will let you see for yourself!

Stay tuned for things we have done using  "paint in a can"

Twin Headboard

I found this Twin Headboard at goodwill a couple months ago. I was going to use it for my daughters room but than ended up wanting something a little different instead.

It was just a plain wood color when i first got it. I sanded it down than painted it. I distress it just very lightly around the edges. I was really happy with the end result!

Best Scrub

I dont know about you but i love a good exfoliation salt scrub! I was lucky enough to find "Bath Junkie" when i was living in Texas at the time! I was so glad when i saw they have one in AZ.

If you havent heard about them. Check out their site!
You can basically build your own scent/scrub. They have all sorts of great bath products and lotions as well!

Its One of my favorites and you must try this! You wont ever try any other brand once you feel how soft your skin is!! Its truly amazing!
