It's been over a week again...CrAzY! How does that happen? My cutie pies started school yesterday so we've been getting ourselves all ready. They had a terrific first day!
I have had a fun wood "laugh" word for awhile now that I have been wanting to paint. I found an awesome color that I thought would be tons of fun. It is Krylon - Ivy Leaf.
Kind of blah and I wanted some fun colors to add to my shelf. The word was only $3.99 from Ross!
I took it outside and gave it about 3 coats of paints. While I was waiting for the first coat to dry I saw something else I wanted to paint (I told you I was addicted!).
Some bookends I also picked up at Ross. These took about 3 coats as well. Remember to do light coats to keep the paint from dripping. It was so hot outside I was tempted to just spray it on thick, but luckily my sanity returned and I was patient.

After 3 coats ~
Look how awesome they look on the shelf!
I absolutely love this color. It's so fresh and fun!
