And I Saw Red, When I opened up the door...

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

anybody remember that Warrant song..I loved that song...and I love my new chairs!

I'm just a little fashionably late to the Paint-Outside-the-Black-Box-Party at Joys of Home.

I'm so glad Joy hosted this party, because we inherited these chairs last week...or I asked for them from Mr. Smarty's grandma who no longer needed them-something like that.

Any-who...I was all ready to go get more cans of my standard black spray when I saw the party. Why do they have to be black? Why not green or yellow or red? RED!!!!

And once I saw them primed, I wondered why I never considered grey? But I don't have anything grey in my house...I'll keep going with my planned red.



LOOOOVE IT!!!!
Next item to get some red...Baby's high chair!

Ooohh! I love them painted red. They demand so much more attention than if they would have been black. They look so sweet and sassy! You made a very wise choice, my friend.
Lots of luck finding a high chair to paint that fabulous red.
I'm so glad you joined in---better late than never. Thanks!

LOVE those chairs. I think you need a little red framed picture of the kids, or a chalkboard nearby! Those chairs turned out so good. Great post!

So where do you do your spray painting? Backyard? Do you cover the grass? I'm a total spray paint novice, but it sounds like fun! Very cute chairs.
