Ive had this guy chilling in my back yard for ever. I'm pretty sure I bought him at a partylite party a bizillion years ago when I still lived in a apartment and only had one child ( ahhh the good ole'days!) Last summer I repainted all my plastic flower pots to add some pizazz to my back yard, but I never/didn't even think of painting this guy who obviously could use some love.
So out came the spray paint. I always get a look from Mike when I break out the spray paint. Its the look of OMG what is she doing now! And what is going to get paint on it! I was a good girl this time, I got a big cardboard box to do my work in so that the table, concrete, grass, wall would not get painted also.
Seee, no over spray all over the place. I have to tell you I am a big fan of spray paint! It is so easy even though I have not quite mastered the one light coat at a time technique.
Here he is all dry and back in his spot ( well not so dry see the little blue spot on the concrete... I cleaned it up the best I could!) So as I was walking back along the side of the house to put the paint away I found some of blue turtles friends.
Little turtle is missing a leg, but nothing a little paint job wont hide.
Funny thing , the paint totally bubbled a
little but a lot, but it only added to the hey i'm a horny toad look so I didn't mind.
Here they are, all three homies chilling in the sun. Moral of my story is pretty much anything can look better or be granted a new life with a little spray paint :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
