Just before 4th of July weekend we went on a quick thrifting trip with a garden project in mind. On that trip I stumbled across a midcentury resin dish with a lot of good potential (read: pretty damn ugly now). So of course, for 99cents, I bought it. Behold:
Yep, thats olive green swirly splatter paint. Want some close ups?
Nice, right? Hairy with a side of mildew? Well, I’d recently snagged some Rustoleum Ultra cover spray paint for use on another outdoor project around here, and I was looooving the color. Plus, I had just enough left for this little project.
The color is called “Lagoon” in Satin finish. We just discovered this Ultra Cover paint and its great. I laid down a coat of spray primer for plastic first, then 2 quick coats of this stuff for full even coverage. Plus it has one of those neat easy spray nozzles so you don’t feel like you’re going to lose a finger in the process.
Before some friends came over for a 4th BBQ, I snagged some white wildflower blooms, some petals from an already-spent red dahlia and sent them floating. Fun, festive little centerpiece that took about 30 minutes. Me likey! Any quick summer projects you’d like to share?
