Fun with frost

Happy February!

Another Monday, another work week. Does anyone else get the Sunday night blues? My stomach sometimes balls up into a stressed knot, just anticipating what the impending work week will bring. But the great thing about Xanax weekends is that there's always another one to look forward to, right?

I hope your weekend was lovely! Here's a small project I squeezed into a recent weekend; it literally took just minutes to do. After seeing what the astoundingly creative (seriously, she's got endless decorating energy) Kate (Centsational Girl) did with frosting spray paint, I've longed to try this wonder product. Take a $4.99 reed diffuser, some inexpensive stickers (Michael's craft store), a couple coats of frosting spray paint (Lowe's), and you've glimpsed THE highlight of my weekend.

I must say, frosting spray paint is SO easy to work with. Spray with a light hand, using big sweeping motions (as with any spray paint) and you can't go wrong. Drying time was a snap too, way less than regular spray paint. The possibilities with this stuff are endless. I was all, You Fantastic Frostiness, where have you been all my life?

I leave you these pics of my little monogramming adventure with frosting spray paint.

  3. Ummm, I might have to remove you from my blog roll just so my friends and family don't come over here, see this idea and do it for themselves before I can make one for them as a gift.

    This is amazing. So amazing that you're staying on the blog roll, I can't punish sheer brilliance. I know, you were so nervous for a second there, right?

  4. You are TOO cute! And your little project knocks my socks off!!! I am basically going to rip you off my dear and do this with Christmas ornaments next year for my friends. (Maybe by then you will have forgiven me for "borrowing" your brilliant idea....maybe.)

    I just LOVE that bathroom too. I remember when you were putting it together and it STILL is such a refreshing space.

    OK...now to find something I can "frost." Crapola! I wish I wasn't stuck in class til 2. I am itching to try my hand at this.

    Cheers~

  5. Nice job! It looks great and seems so easy- however, I know that somehow- I would manage to simply spary too much- too little- glob it up etc...

    BTW- You are too freakin' cute and your bathroom looks spectacular!

  20. I just started to read your blog and I love, love, love your ideas. I now need to find something to frost. Keep inspiring me. Thanks so much for your posts.

  22. So I finally open up my reader and there you are, a lovely little new post which I always look forward to. I sit down to read what my FC friend is up to, and what ? A shout out ? *Blushing*

    Thanks so much, but more importantly, how fantastic is the frost spray? All your friends who frequent your loo will certainly be thinking, where did she find that charming diffuser ? And when you spill the beans and boast of your DIY fabulousness, they will be blown away by your creativity. I can see the future.
    Hugs :-)

  27. That looks great! I've been wanting to try etching or frosting some glasses, but it looks overwhelming. This looks so simple though. I wonder if it washes off...

  28. I love frosted glass paint. It looks great on the bottle and that was a good idea about incorporating the monogram. So classy.

    Also, I've tagged you with the Happy 101 Award!

  36. That is such a great idea! I have been meaning to etch something and have been sort of afraid of the etching material. This solves the problem!

    Thanks also for linking to my crazy stencil project. Love your blog.
