As y'all know, I'm revamping and rainbow-izing the art room. NOTHING stands a chance at not getting spray painted (my hands included) and I couldn't be happier. I mean, maybe it's the paint fumes a-talkin' but don't these trash cans look so stinkin' happy?!
I started by just taping the cans off. I used a painters tape called Frog as I heard it was the best. I'd had it on hand for painting the murals in my room. That took me about 20 minutes. I didn't have any rhyme or reason, just started taping.My tables are red/orange, yellow/green, blue/indigo, purple/magenta. I used that color combo to paint the cans. I did prime them before painting them.
After pealing the tape, I did some touch ups with black house paint. I know that seems nit-picky but I just knew those little color bleeds would drive me bonkers.
Today was a 2-hour day before winter break...it's been so nice to crank my tunes and get some stuff done!
My tables each have a drying rack and now a trash can at the end.
They look like fun stained glass windows...I'm in love! I hope the kids dig 'em when they return from winter break.
You are such an inspiration! I am newer to the art teachering world and I love the ideas you share! These trash cans ROCK! And will help with the steady full trash can dilemma! I will be using the idea of putting drying racks at the end of each table as well! Thank you so much for your amazing ideas!!ReplyDelete
