I didn’t know how quite how to say this, but I’ve been thinking about it about lately and I need to get it off my chest.
I’ve decided I’m going to boycott spray paint.
Yep, you heard that right. I’ve loved using spray paint here or there for the last few years. It’s quick, simple, cheap, they have great colors, and I get an excuse to go outside in order to do it. One might say that I was addicted to it. Not the paint fumes, but the instant satisfaction of grabbing an item in my house, saying “oh I wish this was yellow”, running outside and making it yellow. I was always looking at what I could buy next so I could transform it.
Spray paint was like my magic wand. Poof, color! And if I didn’t like the color, all I had to do was wait a day and make that same thing a different color. So it’s really sad for me to have to say that I’m giving it up.
Why am I boycotting spray paint?
I knew you would ask, and this is really hard for me to admit. First of all, let me say that I am happy with my decision and won’t take it back. When I tell you, you’ll understand. But you might think I’m nuts.
We’re expecting number #4 and due at the end of July. And we couldn’t be happier. :)
I’m feeling good, baby is healthy, and we will find out the gender next month. Lily (almost 4) can’t stop talking about how we’re going to have “six people in our family!!!” (seven she sometimes says, if you include her teddy), Ben (2.5) asks me questions about the baby in my tummy, and Adam (1) doesn’t know what’s going on. But he LOVES looking at baby pictures. They’ll be 18 months apart.
For now I’ll be sticking to low/no VOC paint, craft paint, fabric, and mod podge – and challenging myself to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to projects. And maybe conning Doug into spraying stuff for me when he gets home… ;)
This is my fake disclosure. I wish I could say this post was sponsored by the above pictured paint companies. This post was NOT sponsored by anyone except my husband who is working right now.
