I liked the bright green but the red pot it came in was just too similar to the color of my mahogany-stained wood desk top. It didn't 'pop' quite like I wanted it to. Hmmmm, what to do? what to do? Spray paint should fix the problem!
Instructions to update a faux potted friend:
1. First, grab some paint - I used some flat white protective enamel because it's what we had and I wanted the finish to look matte - and some painter's tape.
2. Tape up the parts you don't want painted. There is likely a more sophisticated way to do this, but hey, it worked.
3. Spray away! Don't forget to let it dry completely. (that's always the hardest part for me...)
4. Admire the change and enjoy the fact that you finally got "the look" you were going for all along!
She's pretty darn cute, huh? A nice modern touch on my more traditional desk. She makes me feel a little more Spring-y as I sit and do my work, until I look outside and see snow...oh well.
