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.
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!??
