Lime Green To The Rescue!

 I love beach cruisers. Sure, we don't live by the beach. But we can DRIVE to the beach. And then I can ride my beach cruiser all over the beach! Or, just around my neighborhood. Whatever tickles my fancy.

 So I got this beach cruiser a few years ago for $75 at Walmart.


It was ALRIGHT, but I wanted a pretty, FANCY beach cruiser.

 So I decided to buy a can of Rustoleum's Key Lime spray paint at Home Depot for $4 and went to town!









 I disassembled everything except for the pedals and handle bars, and I wrapped those in plastic and taped them off.

After a few coats of primer, key lime and a clear automotive enamel, we put it back together and I squealed in delight! 

I.LOVE.IT! 

I actually left the rims the original color, but I like it and think it adds character to my bike! Besides, it would have been a PAIN  to try and tape each and every spoke.

 Not bad for under $5!!! Now I'm gonna cruise away, making people GREEN WITH ENVY! ;-)


HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!
