Game Changer

You may be embarrassed for me when I share my recent "ah-ha" moment with you.  I have spray painted literally countless pieces of furniture over the years.  Countless.  All without the aid of this guy:

I know.  You are probably thinking, "Duh."  

No more cramped and painted fingers!  Here is an action shot. 

I should be a hand model. 

Anyway, I felt the need to share this $3.99 slice of heaven with you.  I couldn't find an online purchasing link, but apparently the Homax Aerosol Spray Gun is available at all hardware stores near you.  I have found it at both Ace Hardware and Lowe's.  Albeit a bit hidden, I am embarrassed to say that I have not been painting massive pieces of furniture with it for years!  

The project?  I am painting (with ease) an old bamboo dining room table chair (vintage Pier 1) a bright and sunshiney yellow.  It will be serving in a new position as a desk/vanity chair in our guest room.  Love that pop of yellow a la Jenna Lyons.

So....back to spray painting for a bit longer.  I actually don't mind it when my finger is not cramping and rapidly developing carpal tunnel!  



P.S.  Other game changers in my opinion?  Easy.  

Dyson Vacuum.  


All in fabulously cheery shades of yellow.  Coincidence?  I think not.
