The metal grill cover is another dollar store find. I went to the dollar store in search of spray paints for $1 a can. I found the basics, but had to spend more than a dollar on some other colors -- which I am STILL not able to use because it has been too windy outside. I did take the red spray paint (enamel) and my dandy grill cover out to the deck for a quick spray. I just had to see what it looked like. I took a plastic table cloth to put it all on, and had to fight the wind constantly to keep it from blowing away! But I did get a quick spray done to satisfy my curiosity.
I also used the white enamel spray on the big blob. It's not perfect, but with some lettering on it or collage, it will be amazing!
The reason I've been spray crazy lately is that I signed up for another online class with Mary Ann Moss. I liked the Remains of the Day class so much, I signed up for stenciling. Actually, I wanted to take the "Stitched and Stenciled" class last fall when it was first offerred, but you had to have her Stencilry class first and I had not had that. I didn't really want to take both... But it was meant to be. She is now offering the two classes for one price and I could not resist. Now to find a chunk of play time and right weather at the same exact moment. It will be a miracle it seems! And I am most anxious to learn to make my own stencils from old photos, etc. I have already picked some out. Should be fun!
