Stainless Steel~ing My Heart Away On A Summer Day

Happy, happy is the summer afternoon when you have a project that you have been dreaming about for weeks and the time has come to see if is as great in real life as it is in your decorating imagination.

So today...I took the leap...armed with two cans of stainless steel spray paint and that giddy feeling that overwhelms you when you are going to try something that you really don't know if you will like or more importantly...if the family will like...but...you have an feeling that you will...and I DID!

Been wanting to paint something with silver metallic paint for some time now and since our kitchen is filled with stainless steel appliances...I decided to let the little wooden rolling island cart thing join the party...and as I always say ~ "It is only paint...if you don't like it...re~paint it!" CHA, CHA, CHA!



Partners in crime...

Cart in my stainless steel decorating dreams...

Took the leap...

Painted, distressed {to within an inch of it's life}...of course and stained...

What do you think?

My pig is happy...
...and so am I...
Don't you just love it when a project turns out the way you imagined?
Tomorrow...I think I will paint the rest of the cart...
