Spray Paint and Stain

I'm back at the spray paint and stain again.  Seems like I keep finding more things to redo. lol


I've had this tiered basket tray for quite sometime, and a while back I sprayed it white.  That just never seemed to go, so it was time for a change.

I was out of ORB, so I grabbed the can of black and gave it a quick coat.  Not sure if this is what I wanted or not.  I may have to redo it.  When it is dry, we will see.

As usual I forgot to take a before picture.  This was a teal and white pitcher that I've had for quite a while.   It didn't go with anything I had, so I got out my bright yellow spray paint and gave it a coat.

Next I sponged some dark walnut stain on and then wiped it off quickly leaving it in all the lines.  It turned out with a checker board look.  Kind of fun.

After that dried I gave it a couple coats of Crystal Clear for some shine.

Of course I had to play when it was all dry.  It has a really old look to it.  Kind of a dirty mustard color.

I never know what something is going to look like, but if I don't like it, I can just paint it again.

I put it in the island vignette for now.  Different for a change.  I love old pitchers and jars, so I like the look since it looks old.

Fun day just playing.  I am going to have my granddaughter here for a few days so I will be visiting and running around with her.  I will check in when I can.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

It is a vintage mannequin that was actually made from a mold that was made from a real person back in the day...eek... a wee bit creepy but kind of neat in a way!

  19. Hi Marty...

    Wow...you always inspire me, Girlfriend! I have an old spotted brown pitcher in storage that I could spray paint! I'm going to give it a try! I love how your pitcher turned out with the antiqued yellow finish! And...it looks sooo pretty mixed in with your island vignette! Can't wait to see what you do with your three tiered wicker stand! Hehe!

    Love ya,
