pretending it's spring...

even though i feel like spring should be knocking at my front door, all i've gotten lately is bunch of rain and hail...even some frost this morning!

while i was peeking through some of my favorite blogs last week i came across this:

i was instantly smitten.  so, the first chance i got, i ran to home depot and picked up a couple cans of spray paint in white and yellow.  then, i got three bunches of tulips on sale at qfc. 

i haven't had much luck with spray paint in the past and i just figured i hadn't learned the art of the sweeping motion.  you know what i mean?  if you don't do it right, you'll end up with running spray paint and it won't be even?  yeah, well up until this weekend, that was me!  

this spray paint is the best!  truly!  try it for yourself. 


once i started, i was itching to find something else to spray.  i had gotten this fruit basket at ross years ago.  originally it was a rusty color, but just look what 5 minutes and a little spray paint can do...





i'm low on fruit, so i added tomatoes and bananas just so it wouldn't be empty.  
i'm just going to pretend it's spring, at least when i'm in my kitchen ;-)

I love it as well!!! And I love spray paint. It's really my best friend when it comes to decorating. I have approximately 50 cans of spray paint, both empty and half full, in my garage right now! I spray paint everything, but I'd never thought of canning jars. What a great idea. ANd it looks so nice and spring-y, which I definitely need when spring is taking sooo long to get here this year!

I may have to copy that idea. Love it!

They are cute. I really like them in yellow, but that's because I am totally into color right now. Althoug you know I love white also. I may do some yellow. Or even a pretty purple for my paint brushes.

Ooh this is cute! Can you tell me what kind of paint you used so I can attempt to be crafty too? I have tons of jars in the basement. While you are at it you can help me decorate my house cause I just don't have that decorator's touch. Love ya!
