Watermelon Pink!

I'm sure you agree, when you think of watermelon, there's TONS of different things associated with it. Watermelon slices, watermelon bubble gum, watermelon jolly ranchers, watermelon lip balm, watermelon body lotion....the list goes on and on!

But today, I'm gonna show you Krylon's Watermelon in ACTION!





I've been working on the girls room for a few weeks now, but there's so much to be done that I can't keep myself motivated! I will get it done, one day. And the reward will be so sweet!

 ANYway. I've been collecting little things for the room here and there, and today I finished two little projects I've been working on.

 First up, is this little chair I picked up at a thrift store for $3. Nothing to write home about, but I saw its potential.


 After some primer and a couple coats of Krylon's Watermelon, I ended up with this!


 CAH-UTE!

 Then I took this $0.99 lamp I found in Ventura on our little getaway.........


And transformed it.....


 LOVIN' IT!

Hopefully I can get motivated to finish their room now with these little cuties to put in it!
