{Happiness in a Can} Outside Tables

It's no secret I love spray paint...and nothing in my house is safe from it. When we drug our outdoor stuff out of the shed at the beginning of the summer, my cute Crate and Barrel tables were no longer cute.

Rustoleum's Key Lime has been taunting me for awhile, so I thought these tables were perfect for that little party-in-a-can! Oh, and this handle whoo-sie is genius, really! Save yourself from having an ever-present painted pointer finger, and hand cramp, and get this $6 clip-on.

After splashing a little water washing off the grime, I gave them a coat of the glossy Key Lime. I came back out later for the second coat and found this....along with an empty can of Key Lime!

It might as well have been a chalk outline of a body! That is so typical Mr. Sugarplum....see something laying around, have brilliant idea, execute said idea with no preparation or consulting the boss me! I mean, at least lay down a sheet!! I guess I'm lucky he didn't do it directly on the driveway?! Anyway, my voice might have gotten a little shrill when I told him I still needed to give the tables a second coat, and "You used the rest of the paaaaaaaaaaiiiiint!" (insert nasal whine)

Being the sweetie he is, he fled the house ran to Home Depot for another can.

And I hate have to admit, Mr. Sugarplum's project did too!

Oh, and some of you eagle-eyes may notice one of the tables looks a little different....um, yeah...I later went back and painted them Green Apple. But the sun is still Key Lime. What?! That's the greatness of spray paint....Happiness in a Can!

  1. They look great! Count your lucky stars, my man hates picking up the spray paint and I would love him to care enough to do so. He did a great job on that sun, and I totally envy your pool!!

  3. Your back yard is so cheerful, inviting - just like you! Love everything you've done - and I'm with you on that spraypaint trigger thing - my clever niece told me about it and what a huge difference...maybe Mr. Sugarplum has a career as a road striper ahead of him! :-) Ali

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
