The Evil Eye...

Note to Self: When mashing that button on top to begin to spray paint, point that hole AWAY from your face and designer eyeglasses. Geeze Louise. I get so tired of being the entertainment everywhere I go. It slap wears me out. Luckily I had not shaken the new can enough and all that came out was clear goo. It took some scrubbin'...but it all came off of my glasses.  (loud exhale with puffed out cheeks)

O is for OOPS!...

So glad you're no worse for the experience. It sounds like we have the same problems...thank goodness we can laugh at ourselves as well as at each other! :)

Next time try rubbing alcohol and/or a cut potato...

The White Farmhouse said...

I've done this before. Our last house I spray painted right outside the door so I could hear my newborn son if he cried. I cried when I realized our green (ugh) house had a big pink patch. Atleast you had your glasses on to protect your eyes.

I am so glad that I'm not the only one who does things like that! I just love to use spray paint on anything I can get my hands on. Yesterday, even though it was quite windy here, I was bound and determined to spray a tall metal arch that I have in one of my flower gardens. Well, I should have waited for a calmer day! The arch turned out fine, but the wind changed and I got a fine mist in my contacts! Luckily they weren't a new pair!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

I am also guilty of doing this then I had to look around and make sure no neighbors saw me! Mine was black spray paint.

BucksCountyFolkArt said...

Lucy! You got some 'splainin' to do!

Thanks so much for the sweetest comments on my blog and for joining as a follower. I could use all the friends I could get in this new, exciting, and scary world of blogging!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hahahahahahaha! OK, now I have never squirted myself with spray paint, but I have sprayed hair spray under my arms, squeezed hand cream on my toothbrush, and other similar disasters.

I can relate. It gets so frustrating having to slow down and make sure everything is lined up correctly when we're in a hurry to get started on our creativity. I'm glad you're ok :)

Lori said...

Oh man!!! At least you had the glasses on. have to lol.

Life in Rehab said...

Jingle said...

At least it was paint and not spray adhesive. I nearly covered myself in the stuff last night! SO CLOSE!

Viki said...

Thank goodness you had glasses on and it didn't get in your eyes. Happy you were able to get the stuff off your glasses.

Denise Marie said...

Wow, Mary Beth...I thought that was my trick! lol

awal.ny said...

Ok, I got one better. I was about 15 and I should have known better but I still did it. I was trying to fix a spray can with a hammer. Yep face full of spray paint, not good at all. I know I had to do a lot of scrubbing. I came to thank you for visiting my garden white. Happy painting.

Maggie B said...

If you hadn't had your glasses on it could have been a lot worse and very painful.
Glad you scrubbed up o.k.
~Maggie~

Susanne said...

So funny because if it hasn't happened to us already it could any day. I have a friend who has a saying "If I don't like it, I just spray paint it!" Words to live by.

Love your Mother's day gift idea!

Funny thing is, I have been using a white can of spray paint today too. I enjoy your blog.

Bead and Needle said...

SO glad I found your blog - and glad to hear I'm not alone in things like this. I grabbed a can from a special spot in the pantry last week, that I thought was basting spray. 'Twas cooking spray - thank goodness it only hit the batting and not the fabric underneath, before I realized.

Jenny said...

What a totally adorable stop on the Alphabe-Thursday "O" train!

You just made me laugh.

Especially after I was cooking dinner and instead of reaching for the Pam sprayed the inside of my skillet with window cleaner.

Sigh.

One of those days.

Thanks for making the Letter "O" so fun and thanks for joining us!

A+

Lori said...

Mary Beth, could you please let me know, did the package arrive???Lori

Julienne said...

Ohhhh I do like this! Life is so much more fun when it happens to everyone!!

Brenda said...

Funny! Do you remember spray deodorant? I picked that up a couple of times over the years when not paying attention instead of hair spray. Thank goodness for solid deodorant because my eyes are certainly not getting any better!

GardenofDaisies said...

OMG! That is something I would do! I'm so glad I read this post before taking on any spray painting projects, so I have been warned!

Brianna! said...
