Help a girl out


I brought this cute little guy home the other day.  Like I needed something else for cupcakes...


The thing is, it's just a little too...

Shiny?

Industrial?

Modern?

It's just not quite me.  Yet.

Since food won't ever directly touch it, I'm going to spray paint it.  But what color?

Robin's egg blue?

Red?

White?

Help!

  1. I vote for the robin's egg blue...usually I'd say red, but that just seems to fit.

  4. I vote white since it works for all seasons and special occasions/holidays. Just my two cents.

  6. White will be beautiful but red would be more fun! If I had this piece, I'd go red. It would be gorgeous!

  7. That is really cute! How about a pretty yellow? You can't go wrong. If you decide you want it a different color, you could always paint it again! That is the fabulous thing about spray paint! ;oD

  11. I think white... then you can spruce it up with fabric or ribbons to go with your party theme!

  12. I'd leave it as is but use ribbons and fabrics to prettify it.

  16. First choice is light green! I know, that wasn't one of my choices, but it goes with all the seasons- and most holidays! If I have to pick another, I would pick white!

    Do you think you will be doing a tutorial on the big fabric baskets you made for SYTYC? I love them soooo much!

  17. I think white, and I like the idea of sprucing it up with ribbons to fit the celebration!

  18. My first thought was BLACK, but maybe I'll vote with the other ladies and say white.

  19. I vote glossy white... and glue litte crystals to the top of each little hump (for lack of better words) and use it for girlfriend get togethers. Call yourself princess for the day and invite the girls over for cupcakes. I think I am going to do that come to think of it... isn't it time we let our inner princess out?

  20. Different thought flat black makes it look like wrought iron. Check out this refurb I did on a light fixture to make it look like wrought iron...

  23. I am so into yellow these days and trust me this is a great yellow! Try Bauhaus gold spray paint by Krylon, its fab. I did several metal pieces on my deck and I am in love!

  24. I like the green idea...minty or darker? Or else white so it can match things easily.
