Poppy red was the color of the day on Sunday. I had a bit of time and energy to put to a good cause. The cold and dreary weather made me want a bright ray of sunshine all of a sudden. These were items I found over the past year or so that were fun & functional, but not my color preference. After putting up with their natural color-blah for too long, I decided I could group paint these items quickly!
They were subjected to a good Sunday painting – a one hour, 2 sloppy-coats of instant poppy, red, joy. I didn’t get into every nook and cranny, I let some wood show, with exception of the stool, which I really went to town on and painted solid.
If you like/love the look, you will ignore the dust – which is what I did. I am loving a red giant fork and spoon in my kitchen!
What I used and where I found it:
Big spoon: $1.oo – thrifting on 4oo miles of garage sales
Large fork: $0.98 – D.A.V. ( you must find one and visit)
Folding stool: Wal-Mart – $15.99
Hobby Lobby paint: $0.77 Acrylic paint dries very quickly, which is why I love it.
