You know that cheap white spray paint that you bought because you thought it would do the job but it just didn't cover well at all? Don't tell me I'm the only one who has done this. Anyone? Well anyway, I found the reason that stuff was made... Dollar store Christmas village!
I found this tutorial on 36th Avenue (awesome blog, BTW) and realized that I needed to copy.
This is an $18 village from Dollar Tree. If you've priced these out, you've probably found that the most inexpensive villages are around $15 per piece. That makes this 18 piece set for $18 (hence dollar store) so fab.
I got the spray paint at Home Depot or Lowes for $1 forever ago and it really was crappy for the other projects I wanted to use it for so it sat there half full (look at me be an optimist) for months.
So I used it to spray the village.
I love how you can still see the color through the white. LOVE it!
And here it is all set up in the dining nook.
Linking up at the great Linky parties found at the bottom of the blog. They are where I find most of my inspiration! Check them out!
