I like to challenge myself by finding the U-G-L-I-E-S-T item at a yard sale, taking it home and making it look beautiful again. When I spotted this broken umbrella stand shaped like a fish, I knew just what to do …
I’m taking him home and spitting all over him!
What? Spit on that ugly fish? Eeew? Really?
Unicorn Spit™ is a non-toxic, water-based, rainbow-colored gel stain. It smells like jasmine, is safe enough to dip your fingers right into the jar, and you can create some beautiful looks with it. We are now carrying the full line of 10 vibrant Unicorn Spit™ colors at our shop, All Things New Again in Leesburg, VA.
We have been having so much fun “spitting” on just about everything we can find around here because Unicorn Spit™ makes EVERYTHING look pretty!
Remember the garden chairs I painted last week? The seats on both of them feature different techniques using Unicorn Spit™.
Here is a beat-up old dresser my mom spit on …
Here’s a little table I spit on …
Yes, you can create some really beautiful looks on furniture with Unicorn Spit™ … but that’s not all! It also sticks to metal. What does that mean? It means all of those clunky brass candlesticks you have rolling around in the back of a cabinet somewhere are going to look amazing when YOU spit on them!
Lightning and I aren’t the only ones who love Unicorn Spit™! The talented ladies over at the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest are giving away a set of all 10 colors of Unicorn Spit™ to this month’s winner—and I’m so excited they have asked me to be one of the guest judges. The theme is Let Your Colors Burst. I can’t wait to see all of the wonderful entries.
If you aren’t a blogger … check it out anyway! There are a lot of beautiful projects to enjoy. Here are the links to the contest hosts’ projects:
Too bad Leaf isn’t a piece of furniture. Who is Leaf, you ask? That’s the name Lightning gave to the big ugly fish I showed you earlier. (He’s really into picking interesting names for everything lately!)
Here’s Leaf now all glued back together, bright and colorful with his Unicorn Spit™ makeover. I tucked him into my little herb garden and I think he is actually looking better than the basil!
What did I tell you? Unicorn Spit™ makes EVERYTHING pretty! Try it out today.
