Gypsy Teal

Weekend project:
  • Repaint mailbox and make it cute
  • Add a splash of color to this Southwest house
            Check & Check!


Remember when Valspar did their free sample giveaway? I was able to get a little gypsy teal from the deal. 


Isn't is Gorgeous?!



You may [or may not] remember me using it on my little tray :






I actually used the same swirly design concept when updating the boring black mailbox:

step 1: freshen up the sun faded mailbox with a fresh coat of black spray paint
step 2: come up with [or reuse] a design idea
step 3: after painting it black & waiting for it to dry, I drew my design on with a pencil then painted it on
step 4: use a clear coat spray paint to protect my little work of art



Also used the Gypsy Teal to refresh the boring blah house number sign:

before|after


ah, much better
