I love Halloween! I love thrift shopping! And I love spray paint! Put them all together and you get this post! LOL
I found this very pink princess castle at Savers for only $3.99! But in my head I totally saw HOGWARTS! The brick walls, the turrets, the large doors. So to the horror of little girls everywhere, I pulled out the black spray paint!
I didn't use a plastic-specific spray paint. I just went to the shelf in the garage and grabbed my favorite spray paint ACE Hardware premium enamel. I love that fact that it covers very well and dries so quickly.
As soon as I was done I was SO excited! My vision had become a reality and yes, it really did remind me of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from Harry Potter. Yes, I am a proud #potterhead.
I placed it behind my sink for now but once I decorate for Halloween in full, I will post more pictures. I am quite excited about how it turned out.
I have posted the following before but I thought they were worth a revisit for this Halloween spray paint specific post....
Everyone knows I'm a Disney addict. And so when I saw this pretty white candle holder at GoodWill, in my head I thought HAUNTED MANSION!
I found these glitter Halloween clip ons at WALMART for only 97 cents each. Oh the possibilities.
Here is the result! I really like the way it turned out. I also found the candle for .99 too at GoodWill.
I found this awesome candlestick at GoodWill and the candle for under $5! I took it apart and painted it black and rubbed it silver. I found glitter decals at Michaels and I really like the way it looks on my foyer table. It is very regal like something found in an old Hollywood scary movie.
Last week I stopped in this random thrift store and found these lanterns. Obviously, the previous owner used them outside and they were pretty beat up and rusted. They were only $3 each! So I cleaned them and spray painted them and they turned out like new. I am so excited because nothing screams Halloween to me like a spooky lantern.
I have also had these on the shelf in the garage and I have contemplated just donating them because I never knew how I would put them to use. SO glad I let them sit there. I spray painted them to match the lanterns and decided to put them to use in the foyer. I have more work to do on them but they look very cool! Very old school Halloween.
I found these rusted look candle sconces on clearance at Hobby Lobby in the summer department. They were ridiculously cheap and of course they found their way into my cart. I decided to spray them black for Halloween! They work perfectly at my front door and I! I placed some flameless candles that flicker - my candles must have that spooky flicker - and they look very inviting.
I hope to post more Halloween pictures in the coming weeks with decorations and ideas. I would head to your local thrift stores and look for random things you can spray paint for fun and unusual spooky decor! Good luck and Happy Haunting and Happy Hunting!
