Sometimes we reach end of the road when it comes to some of our decor pieces. We simply grow out of some decor styles . That was the case with my wooden cat statue.
It’s still kind of cute, but it doesn’t fit anymore.
I wasn’t ready to part with this little fella just yet, so I decided to make a little do-over.
– wooden cat statue
– spray paint (two colors)
–old newspaper /leftover paper sheets/old mags
(to protect parts of the statue while applying second color )
– painters tape
Instructions & tips:
Three coats of paint are recommended if you decide to spray all over the old paint ( like I did!).
I had enough paint for two coats only, so it’s no perfect, but still, kitty looks so much more vibrant!
I applied first coat of yellow paint and left it to dry for about 15 minutes.
(Unfortunately, ‘neon yellow’ attracted lots of bugs :)).
I did exactly the same with the second coat of paint.
I made sure second coat is dry, and I attached painters tape to the cat’s belly (forming a diamond shape).
Hubby used some paper sheets to protect sides and face of the cat before I sprayed his belly pink.
I applied pink paint, left the statue to dry for few minutes and then quickly removed painters tape.
Voila! Brand new, old wooden cat 🙂
