Went to Walmart last night. I go several times a week. I just can’t seem to get everything I need in, say, one trip a week. When the kids were little, I even made up a song. Background--long before my time there was this McDonald’s commercial:
Well, by the time I was a little kid, older kids had changed the words to “McDonald’s is your kind of place, hamburgers in your face, dill pickles up your nose, French Fries between your toes….etc, etc.” So that’s how I know the tune.
For my kids, I took the tune and made up this song:
Walmart is our favorite store
We’re always needing more
We never have enough
Of all that Walmart stuff!
I really sort of left it hanging and never did make up any more verses. I still occasionally sing it, just to make the kids groan and roll their eyes.
Aaaaanyway, back to the main point. While there, I grabbed a little pie pumpkin (and a red tablecloth and two more of the yummy candles). I wanted a white pumpkin, they didn’t have one, and I had a plan to paint this one.
I thought I had a can of Heirloom White, which would be a good creamy pumpkin white. I was mistaken. The only white I had was a 97c can of gloss white.
Fail! It didn’t adhere or cover very well. It looks worse in person. I could go to Home Depot and get Heirloom White, or just go ahead a buy a white pumpkin. But that would defeat the purpose of trying to do it on the cheap. And you know I’m cheap.
I still think it would work with the right paint. Maybe next year.
