If you're on Pinterest or if you check out sites like Apartment Therapy, you've probably noticed the trend of spray painting random crap to make it interesting.
I spray painted something pretty random and craptastic.
My new $5 friend?
Well he met a can of $5 Krylon spray paint in Bahama Sea (probably one of my favourite colours ever) and now he looks like this...
Not bad, right?
I started out by roughing him up a bit with some wadded up tin foil since I didn't have any steel wool. The roughing up was all consensual though. Then wiped him down with vinegar and water. This time I actually did things the right way and used a spray primer first, then hit him with the Bahama Sea.
Looking at it now, I probably should have filled that crack beforehand, but I didn't notice it before. Plus, I was kind of excited to get him painted.
Sorry about the crappy pictures - I took them at like 10:30 in my bathroom so I could get the post up for today. He's not going to live in the bathroom, but I already had a hook there, so I just went with it. Actually he won't live in the bathroom because I want to paint it basically that same colour. Anyway, sorry for the crappy pictures, but I have a crappy camera. One day I'll get a better camera and start being a pretentious hipster who takes artsy pictures of their freshly folded laundry and you'll all wish I had my crappy camera back.
Anyway, that's Darrell. I loves him. What do you think?
