I think I may have a problem.
When my husband told me that his brother wanted to take our sadly neglected hand-me-down baby slide for his daughter–our sweet, almost-2-year-old neice–my heart raced.
I had spray paint sitting in the garage from when I pimped our coupe a few weeks back.
I had to think fast. He was coming the next day.
And there was no way we were going to pass along a sad and faded slide to our most-favorite-in-the-whole-world neice. I got to work.
Beautified Baby Slide:
First, we scrubbed this baby down. She was sparklin’.
Then, I made some flower and leaf stencils.
I painted the ugly, faded orange parts white and cream, then I threw on some flowers–tulips and daisies.
And then I put on some leaves, here and there.
And that’s it. Super-simple and now oh-so-beautiful.
Some things you can only do in the summertime! I’m so curious–anyone else frequently beautifying or pimpin’ their backyard toys this summer? Link them here!
