In my last post, I showed you the Man Cave makeover that I did for my 49ers fanboy hubby. Today, I just wanted to share a bit more specific detail on how a little spray paint helped turn trash into treasure!
We had a garage sale recently, and after I decided to do the Man Cave, I went rummaging through the garage sale leftovers. You know that if it didn’t sell at a garage sale, it’s really at the bottom of the barrel. Then again….
Here is a silver and gold touch lamp, and two end tables that are part of a three-table set. Each table is smaller than the next, so they can nest underneath each other. I decided that the smallest and largest table would work best for my purposes.
Just add a little San Francisco 49ers colored Krylon spray paint, and voila!
I covered the entire lamp and the tops of the tables in Cherry Red. Then, I sprayed some gold metallic paint lightly over the red lamp to give it a speckled appearance. I used the rest of the gold to paint the metal frame and legs of both of the tables.
As you can tell, the smaller table was turned into a footstool. I’ll be covering a How-To on the footstool cushion in my next post.
If there is one thing that this project taught me, it is that I am no spray paint pro. I had drips here and there, especially on this bookcase:
…and on the shelf:
But, all in all I think it all turned out okay!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s amazing what a few cans of spray paint can do.
