While I was at Ross the other day I picked up this garbage can for $4. Don’t you just love the blue color? Uhmmm, no! Maybe in another room, but not my bathroom.
First, I primed it because it was so dark and I didn’t want to use all my heirloom white paint trying to cover up the blue. I’ll be honest with you, I only use primer about 50% of the time.
Then I painted it heirloom white and liked how it looked, but I wanted to make the center design pop a little more.
So, then I made a big mistake. UGH! Ugly. I didn’t even have to finish and I could tell you this was a big disaster. I very strongly hate dislike it. This was all I could wipe off.
So, I used more heirloom white and painted over it again. Aaah, much better and I think the detail pops enough. And I don’t want to have to paint it again.
I love spray paint and being able to cover up my mistakes!
