Joy at Joys of Home is throwing a Paint Party to celebrate a week without using black spray paint. I think we were supposed to “paint outside the black box,” but since I never use black spray paint I thought I would do the opposite. I decided to take a little trip to the Goodwill (which I will talk about later) and purchased this silver bowl for $4.14.
I used Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Flat Black paint, because I thought that this would be perfect for Halloween! This project was actually a lot harder than I thought. When I first tried to paint it, I sat it out side on my trusty flattened cardboard box. I had my spray paint mask on and my new handle (*which is awesome by the way!), and as soon as I started spraying a bug flew in to the paint! I flecked it off with my nail, and decided I would fix it later. I would just let it dry for a while. When I went back out to check on it, I realized it was raining. So I just decided to bring it in and start all over. It’s turned out pretty good except for some cracking in one spot. I’m not sure why that happened, but I think I can sand it off and just re-spray that area.
If you like seeing spray paint projects as much as I do, you should go check it out.
*While at the hardware store getting my black paint I decided to splurge on the spray paint handle. It is made by Rust-oleum and was about $5. They had another version which was a little cheaper, but the handle on this one looked better. I’m sure you could find them cheaper other places, but I have a few things on my spray paint to-do list. Anyway, I highly recommend it.
