As soon as the kids go back to school, my thoughts turn to fall. The football. The Halloween costumes. The pumpkin spice everything. But, because I live on the surface of the sun (aka Texas) where it’s still 100-degrees, it doesn’t even begin to feel like fall until most of you already have inches of snow on the ground. So, I have to occupy myself with little fall-type projects while I sit in my air-conditioned house.
We’re getting ready to start teaching our DI kids some costume building skills so they can create their own Halloween costumes this year, so I have Halloween on the brain. During a recent trip to Goodwill, I spotted these teddy bear figurines and a crazy idea came to mind.
I set up my HomeRight Spray Shelter so I could give these beauties a coat of paint in my garage. It was one zillion times easier to set it up in the garage than it was in my bedroom (who knew? Ha!). I put down a drop cloth and then covered a little table since it’s easier to spray paint when your items are waist high. You’ll notice that the drop cloth is smaller than the Spray Shelter footprint – we’ll talk about that in a minute.
