I had to.
I have been dreaming of flames on my minivan for three years now, and this, I believe, is as close as I’ll ever come (unless my husband surprises me one day. . . ).
After reading one of my favorite, most creative bloggers and seeing how she re-vamped a mini-coupe herself, I had to do it. Mine is much less cool, but it works for us. I like to think that Xzibit, Mad Mike, and the crew would still be proud.
Cora and I worked super-hard together to try to surprise Maddy and Owen early this week while they were at camp:
- Pimpin’ Our Coupe: A super-fun and silly summer morning was spent with Cora, first cleaning–no, scouring–our dirty, sad coupe that was handed down to us a few summers ago from some kind neighbors.
. . . then spraypainted some more. This time, lightening bolt style.
I was not very careful. I moved quickly because (honestly) the rain clouds were fast approaching.
I think, today, I became Owen’s hero. He told me over and over that he loved me and he thought I was a great painter and that I made the old car super-fast. He wanted me to spray paint everything, and I just might in the next few weeks, if it makes him this happy. . .
Cora still zips around the yard in this baby; now, she’ll be doing it in style. Thanks again, Pink and Green Mama for the inspiration!!
Maybe tomorrow I’ll retain my senses and focus on some learning around here. . .
