I've had this wooden box for a long time. This is the after pic.
It's one of those boxes that comes with an assortment of tea bags in it.
As you can see, the box is really dark, and my furniture is dark.
It was barely noticeable, just about anywhere I put it.
So, I decided to paint it.
Being terrible at faux painting techniques, a can of spray paint is my best friend.
I taped stripes on the box, and took it out on the deck.
I tried to spray fast, because it was 80 degrees with 80% humidity, and I wasn't even sure the paint would dry under those conditions.
So, I sprayed a little...took the box indoors, waited for it to dry...took it back out, and sprayed again.
And I'm so happy. The sun is still out!
Hopefully, it will be sunny tomorrow, even though rain is predicted for the next few days...but I'm not complaining. At least we aren't having triple digit temps.
What have y'all been up to this weekend?
Any new projects, or just relaxing?
I'll be by to visit.
