I Declare This...." Spray Paint Week!!"

Ok I know it's already Friday but I promise I'll make "Spray Paint Week" worth the read ;)

Did you know that you can spray paint pumpkins? I didn't think the paint would stick very well but it did! Yaaay! I couldn't find any white pumpkins in town so.... enter Krylon cream colored spray paint. I had my wonderful friend Shanna cut me a vinyl 60 (that's my house #) and a "P" (for my last name) to go in a pot on the other side of my porch. I'm loving it!
I've also spray painted a new cake stand intended just for pumpkins. I know I've blogged about this before and so has Erin (a very crafty and clever girl over at Shakespeare's Stage). If you don't know how to make a cake stand, look at my post linked here. Cake stands are fun for so many, many more things than just cakes. In fact, I have 5 of them and I think I have used them for cakes once. They are usually used for cookies, fruit, notes, garden veggies, cupcakes, anything! I have two of them sitting on my counter at all times. They are fun gifts as well!
Since we use our table for eating (I know weird right?), I wanted to make something that is very easily moved. For my table runner I just used some muslin and burlap, needs to ironed, but it does the job. Surrounding the pumpkin stand is a small fall wreath.

Tune in tomorrow for more spray paint ideas. I'll give you a hint: I painted something that you can wear on your feet.....OOPS! Did I give it away?

LOL! You're so cute. Love the post. I can't believe you spray-painted pumpkins. Seriously...very cool.

And let's see if I can guess what's in store for it toenails? Did you spray paint your toenails?! heh heh.

Can't wait to see the next project!

Love your thrift store couch redo, color choices, and everything else! If we lived by each other, I think we would be good friends! And I would have you teach me how to sew! :) Now I'm off to make a cake stand like that!
