White and Thrifted...and spray painted


 My husband is so funny! He keeps telling me that Home Depot has my name on a list for buying too much spray paint...and the police have been notified!  Yikes...you know here in California they keep the spray paint behind a locked gate...seriously. You have to get someone to unlock it for you...and at Home Depot they ask to see your driver's license and put you on a list.  I'm not lying...
That hasn't stopped moi!
 Warm weather is here let the spraying begin! I think the best projects have to involve a little wrist action...nozzles...and the soft hum of paint being sprayed on something...
 My thrift store armoire...is my favorite...I rolled it with a paint roller...
 thrifted plate...one of my favorite china finds...
 Our bathroom during the building process...I wanted to add white touches...boy did I get lucky...I found things and went hog wild spraying them white...

 even if the pitchers weren't white they still got it...after all this was a bathroom...they wouldn't be used for kitchen things...
 the hutch when it arrived. See the dent in the truck? I tease my hubby he drives by the "touch system"..he backs out until he touches something and then brakes! Buwahahahaha

 Old vintage rose picture with thrifted paper roses....one of my favorites!
Check out Susan for more beautiful blogs and projects!
Daughter keeps asking me where her jewelry went?  In the linen cabinet of course!
Blessings,
Debbie

Oh my I had no idea the paint was locked up, I would be your jail mate if they did that here in Florida! Everything looks better white!

I have never heard of having spray paint locked up! I think I would be on the banned list as I too love spray paint. Love your cabinet.

Nice work Debbie.
I love a good spray paint project. I just did a chair on Friday. Your bathroom pitchers are adorable. I will be on the hunt now for interesting little pitchers I can spray white.

LOL! I'm probably on a list somewhere too. My husband says he's afraid to be still too long... I might paint him!
Your armoire is beautiful and your plates look so pretty displayed beside it!

Hey, Debbie! Why don't you offer to spray paint Hubby's truck while you have the white paint can out? You may have a talent in auto body repair. SMILE.
