Spray Before and After: His vs Hers


Mandy's going to be posting about a spray paint project here pretty soon so I thought I'd see her spray paint and raise her a Mini Cooper.

Mandy's project involved a mystery table (she calls it an end table) that she picked up for $6 at a garage sale. I wouldn't have picked this table if they'd offered me $6 to take it off their hands, but nevertheless it ended up in her van. Two rattle cans later and voila.


My project was yellow Mini Cooper S that I'd bought sight unseen. I knew it was yellow, but I didn't know it had white wheels and needed a big flower on the door. So I picked up a few cans of PlastiDip, an amazing spray paint that you can peel off later should you change your mind.


Which before after project gets your vote?

  4. You took off the racing stripes, too? I feel like the car is a bit off balanced...I like what you're going for but maybe black wheels is too much? Or get rid of the white top? I love the blue she painted her table; hopefully you guys are selling it!

  6. I want to know how you got rid of the stripes on the hood? Yellow PlastiDip or where the stripes not permanent? Otherwise, it's a good looking job :)

  7. The stripes were non-silhouett-cut vinyl and peeled off.

  8. Both paint jobs are well done. But even though I am a girl, I am loving what ya did with the Mini Cooper.... you were right a little too flower power before. I am definitely picking up some of that spray paint!!!

  9. The car does seem a bit off balance now. I like the black top idea, but the front seems lacking too. Perhaps if the lower front bumper were also black? I think the car has gone to the dark side and no white can remain, not even in a 'stenciled' checkerboard.

  10. It looks so much more grounded and less toy like. Is the top white? I don't see white on the top, I thought it looked yellow...but I cannot find my glasses for anything and I just tore the couch apart looking. Mandy's table is quite funky and I love the color she chose but I would love a Mini Cooper. Cooper gets my vote!
