Frightening to Fabulous!

And my spray-painting obsession goes on! At Hobby Lobby last week, all of their polyresin home decor items were 50% off so I picked up a tall, black "bouquet" of daffodils for about $12. In shiny black, I found these flowers to be, well...REALLY creepy. I mean, who wants a bunch of  flowers that look dead? (Perhaps a funeral parlor or haunted house? I suppose there is a chance that black flowers are really "in" right now and I missed the trend!) Anyway, I had just purchased some Krylon paint in new colors over the weekend at Wal-Mart and thought there was some potential to create a fun spring/summer piece. I wish I had taken a photo of the flowers before I started in with the primer; however, as I am the queen of instant gratification, I had that sucker in my backyard, sprayed, within 5 minutes of arriving home.

Here we are after the first coat of primer--can you get an idea of how weird this was in black?

I used MANY coats of this spray paint. There were lots of nooks and crannies in those flowers!

And here is the finished product! Once the Easter decorations come down, this little beauty will have a home on the table in our foyer. :)

Happy Wednesday! Hope you're having a great week!

Wow, that's incredible! Maybe they were left from last Halloween, but you made them look beautiful! Good eye to be able to see the potential.
