That means I can only paint the little things.
I did have to buy some things for this project, paint mostly.
Key Lime Green spray paint, 2 can $12
Pink paint, 1 pint $18
Paint sponge-brushes, 8 $7
3M hooks, 8 $9
Things I already owned
Two wicker baskets serving no useful purpose
Large round dollar store bucket to corral my laundry soaps
Ugly square basket that came with the previous house we owned
Peanut butter jar for my soap works dry bleach powder
Empty lid off a liquid laundry detergent bottle to store tbsp to scoop bleach powder when necessary
Yellow tbsp my son found in a park one day to scoop bleach powder when necessary
Empty coffee can for homemade laundry soap
Blue dollar store garbage can
The kids have wrecked all my paint brushes so I had to replenish the supply and decided to try sponge brushes this time. It doesn’t splatter and it’s very handy to paint containers that have lips around them. It gives a very even application that doesn’t drip.
This is an all day project because you have to put 4 coats of paint on everything; 2 on the inside, 2 on the outside. That’s why I like spray paint but they didn’t have any in pink so I had to buy paintbrush paint AT 3 TIMES THE PRICE.
How’d I do it
Next up, must crochet a pink doily for the top of the dryer.
