Love story: a girl and her paint

I'm in love. Deep, abiding, fairytale happily-ever-after love...

...with a can of paint.

Not just any can of paint, though. Spray paint! 


Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint. It achieves an actual mirror-like finish when sprayed on the backside of glass. Of course, this sort of awesomeness doesn't come cheap... one 6-ounce can cost me $11. (For reference, a regular can of spray paint is 12 ounces and usually costs between $3 and $4.)

But was it worth the extra cost? Ohh yeeeeaaaah,  baby.

I started spraying and the heavens opened up.

All right. Maybe it wasn't quite that dramatic, but my heart was definitely going pitter patter. And I guess that could have been because of the fumes (watch out, this stuff reeks of acetone like nail polish remover) but either way, there was magic happening.

I have so many ideas! And I'm going to share one with you tomorrow... I'm soooo very excited about it, so don't miss it! (Seriously, don't miss it -- you blink your eyes and you miss my brief flashes of craftiness, people.)

P.S. Nobody paid me to wax adoringly about a can of paint. Although if Krylon wanted to send me a case of this stuff I wouldn't turn it down...are you there, Krylon?

P.P.S. I've had a couple people ask me how potty training is going -- and I'm happy to announce that it was officially the easiest thing I've ever done because he decided he wanted to do it, which meant I had to do absolutely nothing (hence the easiest thing ever).  My advice for anybody who has to undertake this ridiculous task in the future? Don't push your child, just give them lots of opportunities to see how awesome it is to be a big kid and to "try it out" if the urge strikes. What a huge difference that idea made in my happy little potty training stress-free life. Wooohooo!

  2. I too am a spray paint addict.....I have a whole cupboard of different paints, colors and finishes. My favorite thing is when I see spray paint on the clearance aisle and I'll buy whatever they have, even if I'm not crazy about the color, because you can always layer. And finally, I tell my friends and family not to stand still around me too long or they just might get sprayed!
