Christmas Village gone Silver

It's been so long since I've posted!  But, life in general has been crazy and I have a hard time finding ANY time for myself or my projects.  The only time I've had for myself is late in the evening, after dinner time, bath time then clean-up.  By the end of the late evening, I can barely find the strength to lay in bed and browse a few of my favorite blogs.  I can barely think by this time.  So to even attempt anything, might end in disaster.  

And as Thanksgiving time approaches I find myself giddy with excitement that my favorite holiday season is upon us.  Christmas!!!!!  Yes! Yes! ..and Yes!  I have been fighting back the urge to break out my Christmas decor...but since Thanksgiving is only a few days away, I am justifying the fact that I can do it now.  

So while browsing the blog-osphere late last night, I came across this project at Dollar Store Crafts.  I remember purchasing these little babies from the Dollar Store probably about 5 years ago too.  They have the worst paint job, EVER!  And when I saw her new and improved Christmas Village, I wanted to do the same for my own. I used Krylon in Metalic Silver then sprayed a clear coat to finish them off.  

The Before...
looking a little drab

And the after!!  

      Not too shabby for 
a dollar store Christmas craft.  Now my village is worthy of display.  
I love what a can of spray paint can do!

What will you spray paint this season!??
