Project SuccessFAIL

Get it? SuccessFAIL (successful)!! I know genius right :)

I had a HUGE project fail. H.U.G.E. Everyone has seen these fluorescent pumpkins.





I got mine at Walmart last year for about $5.00 each.  I painted all of my pumpkins bright white.


One coat didn't cover very well so I gave them another one.


Freshly painted second coat.

So here is where it all goes downhill fast. Veeeerryyy fast...



I got this glaze for a chair redo that I plan to get to one day when I have a second of free time, so we're looking at December when school is out. 

Anyway, maybe it didn't work because the pumpkins were styrofoam and not wood? I don't know but they did not turn out like I had pictured in my head.  Not even a little.



What the heck? It looks like I took that pumpkin and rolled it around in the mud!


Really really bad...


So I had two super bright white paintings left.  I had no clue what to do with them.

And then I thought about this metallic paint I used on another project. (It is currently in fail status, we'll save that one for another day.)



I painted on some glaze and it was WAY better!


Now I have cute metallic pumpkins! 





All in all, that's why this project is SuccessFAIL! 

One fail...



BUT one great success!!!



Now I just need to decorate the front porch!
