Ok - I have decided that the spray paint industry has been officially and incredibly affected in a positive way by bloggers. I am sure that in the past 4 years, blogging has influenced spray paint companies to make all kinds of paint to do all kinds of things: make things metal like, leather like, rock like, chalkboard like. It really is incredible.
My new favorite spray paint is Valspar. It is under $5, it goes on very even, there are tons of colors, and it is much easier to use than others I've tried. I have also decided I will no longer use a brush for any more redos, unless absolutely necessary.
I took these pictures one after the other, just experimenting with natural light and flash. Man, it is amazing how much light affects a picture! The one with flash looks like I took it at midnight. Just thought I would mention that.
