Spray Paint and One Extra

I have become a spray paint person. It is so easy and fast and cheap!

I wish I had a before picture of this chair! It was an oaky brown and on the curb, yes, the curb in the super rich neighbhorhood across the street from me. I saw it and without shame (ahem), grabbed it and put it in the back of my car. It had a little crack which I kept trying to fix, but it just didn't want to stay! So, it is turned into a pot holder. The spray paint was $1.30 and the chair was free, so what did I have to lose?!
My sister in law gave this to me from her yard sale. It was kinda beat up (picture below), so I sprayed it and tried to make it a little more fun. It looks better in real life, than in this picture!
And here is my favorite find, $2 at a garage sale. Crappy looking, see below. Sprayed and love!!!
Got this basket for .50 and sprayed it yellow. Look above and see it under the red ladder.
Here are the befores. I have also painted the orange candlesticks and the vase and will have to take pictures sometime!

This is my sweet little girl in the fixed up pillowcase dress. I added some trim and she loved it and here is the before picture. Click!
