The power of spray paint...

When I was in LA in september I discoverd the Daiso a very cool Japanese shop that sells a lot of cute things for little money. We left the store with a basket full of goodies. One of the things I bought was this very ugly pink doll sewing machine, a perfect size for my dolls but I really did not like the look of it but I saw the potential. Today I decided to try to spray paint the little machine and I'm very please with how it turned out, it looks kind of vintage I think.
Spray painting is such a fun and easy way to give items a new look and I think I'm addicted to it! 

How to spraypaint a toy sewing machine:
This is such a easy thing to do so I will not make a whole tutorial but just write down the steps.

- cover an area with newspaper ( best to do this outside or in a well ventilated space)
- tape of the pieces you don't want to paint, I liked the white knob so I coverd it with with masking tape.
- spray paint the machine with a thin layer so the paint will not drip, wait untill its dry and repeat this proces    untill the machine is perfectly coverd
- when the machine is dry take of the masking tape and you are ready!

Your little machine turned out great - such an improvement. I don't know if I would have recognized the potential in the pink version. I love your photo with the kitty paw. Too cute!
