Well, that can isn't gone yet, and I'm still spraying anything that's got me at a dead end. Seriously, try it.
My suggestion: GO BOLD. Black, gold, red-- its a can of spray paint, for Pete's sake. Just have some fun with it.
I'm especially loving the painted toy bookends that are around right now, like this example from Natalme:
You'll be amazed at the new lease on life a coat of paint can give your old tired knick-knacks!
Go on! You know you want to!
