A touch of color...

A touch of color is normally a good thing.....

but a touch of color using spray paint, painter's tape and a drop cloth is a WONDERFUL thing!

And the young one loves it!!  Score!!

One small throw pillow down, two large ones to go... and the room "remodel" is under way!

Now to convince said young one that a change is paint color would really do wonders for HIS room.  Yes he now has his very own room, all to himself... and he is loving it!  In fact all three boys have their own rooms now.  It did mean giving up the spare/guest/craft room but that is okay as they are all at an age when having a small bit of space to themselves is a good thing.

  1. great job "mom"! :)

  2. Peggy,

    I love this project. You made spray paint and drop cloths look like a million dollars!

    Thanks for linking up to the Color party!


  3. You spray painted a pillow? I didn't know that was possible.

    1. We have a tendency to try spray paint on all surfaces at least once.... sometimes it works, sometimes not. I used a very light coat of spray paint, more like a brief misting, which produced a light enough coat to not make the surface hard. My son loves the pillow and uses it all the time while reading books.

  4. This is brilliant, Peggy!!! Thank you so much for the inspiration and linking it up to our party!! :)

  5. Now I must stock my Etsy with spray painted drop cloth pillows ...

    Thanks for the inspiration and thank you so much for sharing at our Crazy for Color link party!



  6. Spray paint and drop cloths are two of my favorite things - oh, and red too!

    So glad you joined our Color party.

  7. What a great idea and it turned out so pretty!
