a small before and after

there's no secret about it, i REALLY like stars. but this one didn't really have a place anymore because i want the boys' room to be a little more plain and just have one BIG star in it...oh and a poster of a star wars clone trooper, but it has to be "cool"(can star wars be cool? according to my boys it is.), so i'm still on the look out.

so i got some "ballet slipper" pink and went to town on the star. a few coats of this and let it dry...
and a few coats of this...have you seen this stuff? this spray glitter is amazing and quick to dry...but i think i'm going to do my own glittering so that it shows up more.

and now it's in the little ones' room. because i still have say in her room for a few more years.

Saaa-woooon!! I love it! Serious eye candy. I used that same pink spray paint on a little stool I have for the girls. It's such a cute color.

CUTE! do you like krylon better than rustoleum? I see they have a better color selection...

that's so very cute. i wish my girl liked pink, but she's been a green-loving gal since she was a baby. no kidding. she always picked out the green toys and carried them around. Now I want to spray paint one of my stars pink, just for the heck of it.

cute! did you refinish her dresser with that whitewash? if so, how did you go about doing it and what color did it start out as?

Love the pink, and check pottery barn kids for the stars wars room inspiration. I feel so cool now because my kids are finally into star wars (actually i think most people would think that was nerdy...)
