I’m not much of a do-it-yourself kind of guy when it comes to stuff for my daughter.
Correction, I am a do-it-yourself kind of guy as long as it is do-it-YOURself, and not do-it-MYself.
I usually feel it is going to look 10 times better if I buy something new and/or pay someone else to do it, than if I did it myself.
Well, that is (hopefully) about to change. At least for one project. You see, our neighbors were having a tag sale, and we bought a beat-up plastic picnic table for our daughter for $4 (we talked ’em down from $5 – we rock!).
Looking at how beat up it was, inspiration hit me. “I bet a new coat of paint would make this look cool!” I thought. But, uh, how does one paint plastic?
I found my answer today in the form of Krylon Fusion spray paint. The stuff apparently goes on pretty easily and is available in several colors and textures.
Of course, after searching around after getting out of work (4:30a – Noon), and checking several places, the best I could find was blue and red. This is why I did not ask my daughter what colors she wanted first.
So, sometime soon, I will give this stuff a try, and I will post before and after pictures. Maybe I’ll get creative and do something cool, like, oh, I dunno. But my goal is to make something cool enough to be featured on daddytypes.
