Have Paint, Will Spray

In my books, a can of spray paint is one of the best things EV-AH!!!  Have you ever had one of those days where you can just walk around your house finding stuff to spray paint until someone must come and pry that bottle out of your hands, or you have used every finger trying to keep that trigger going and you have to stop before losing use of your whole hand? Or is that just me? 

Well, a while back I got a can of aluminum paint to redo some hardware and I rediscovered it this week...Here's what happened:

The blue never fit in anyways....

I LOVE my stars here...and am proud to say they were a total of two dollars at Mardens...but the rest of the space still needs some inspiration I feel.  Definitely not spray painting those:) 

and the mailbox - the landlords put up a falling apart partially black/mostly rusting eyesore of a mailbox....haven't found a replacement yet so yup...it got the full treatment..

Maybe I can still make it work, got some black paint and need make a stencil....hmm, ideas? 

Oh and this too: 

Please don't look at the mess in the back of the picture...Notice the pretty wedding album though?

Yup, I'm a spraypaint-aholic:) but a little addiction never hurt anyone right?

Me too! I think it looks totally awesome. And I think some stencils for the mailbox is an awesome idea. Are you thinking the house numbers on there?

Go Krista, I just sprayed my kitchen light with aged bronse. Turned out wonderful. Numbers on the mailbox may do the trick.

I am pretty sure that is why my husband keeps the spray paint locked in the garage! Although you have done a great job!
