Spray Paint Wonder

Whew! What a crazy busy weekend!

A bowling tournament, pressure washing and staining took up my weekend, oh and some sanding!

Here’s a quick project I completed in between all that other crazyness!

I had gotten this metal/iron dog bowl at hobby lobby a few weeks back. 50% off of course, with all intentions of painting it.  Well, I finally got around to doing just that!

So, here is the before!

After a few coats of Krylon Spray paint it went from that to this!

Easy Peasy! Now sure how Magz feels about it, but I LOVE IT..

Before I leave you for today, I do have a sneak peek of what I’m working on! After acquiring three pieces of furniture over the weekend, I decided to jump right  into revamping them! The pieces originally came from Pier 1 back in 2001, and not necessarily my taste, but I can fix that! Here’s what the night stand looks like after a good sanding session! I plan on covering up/replacing the bamboo fronts with mirrors.. the color I haven’t quite decided on.. Guess I should be figuring that out huh?

You’ll wanna come back for the reveal!

Whatcha been up to?

I have so many different things/projects to share with you but until I can, I thought I’d share some of my instagram photos with you! If you have instagram look me up @amber_griffin!

Now onto the good stuff!

KG was mowing our dog lot last Friday  and decided to push the lawnmower out instead of driving it out, while not to let the dogs out! Well, when he pushed it it went a tad bit farther than he had wanted. That technically isn’t our “yard” (its just a hill with a bunch of leaves and sticks on it) and yes, that’s the lake. But he was laughing about it, so it was all good in the end:) Good thing it wasn’t over a few feet or it wouldn’t took a nice little swim!

KG is a bowler. Recently, he has taken that a little bit father (his dream is to go pro) and is entering in a lot of bowling tournaments. What does that mean for me? Well, LOTS of downtime. Some of these tournaments are hours away, and then take hours to complete, so I take my crochet everywhere I go! (my photography friend usually reeps the reward)

Oh yeh, Saturday was the All-Star NASCAR race in Charlotte, and it RAINED. No, not the whole time, just that cloudy, you never know when its just gonna start pouring down kinda day. But it DID pour down right as the thing was about to start, but have no fear RAIN GEAR was near:)

Now onto the projects!

When we aren’t going to races or bowling tournaments we spend our time on our house! I’ve got maybe 10ish or so projects going on right now! Here’s a few sneak peaks!

We may have gotten a little over our heads with this one. But it will be pretty when its finally done! I’ve gotta kick KG’s butt in gear!
