A rival for my affection

Ok – I’m going to admit it right up front.  I’m in love.  Yup. I’ve fallen hard.

At first I was apprehensive, wanted to know more, wanted to test the waters, wanted to trust but couldn’t commit, but now …. I’m done, no more fighting what was meant to be.

Who, you are asking, is the object of my affection?  Well, it’s not “who” folks – it’s “what”!  And that would be my new spray gun!  I love how it feels in my hands, how it responds, how it covers, how it transforms!

Here’s just a glimpse of what my new love can do:

It can turn this….

Into this….

I’m still working on the finished product, as the “paint and primer in one” did not do the trick

But that’s no fault of my new paint gun – it’s partly the “dummy at the home improvement store” and yours truly.  I know better!

So today – it’s off to find a primer that will seal properly and then I have another date with my new “love”, so don’t wait up! (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)

And you can bet that I’m looking at every piece of wood furniture in my house wondering  ……

  1. Your dresser looks so good so far! Can't wait to see the results...might have to know where you got that paint sprayer!

  2. That so good that you found a wonderful paint sprayer, I'm like you, I've always been a bit afraid of them! You'll have to tell us if how easy it is to clean it to change from one color to the next. The dresser already looks awesome :)

  3. So glad to hear they are not as intimidating as I thought. I could just see myself spraying everything in a 10 foot radius, because the hose goes crazy on me! : ) It' looking good already, Donna.
