My Name is Kimber and I'm a Hoarder

You know when you at long last find a product that you *love* and then suddenly everyone stops carrying it?  If you are at all into design blogs you may know exactly what I'm referring to.  If not, this is what I'm talking about.
Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint in Brass

This fabulous spray has the perfect brass finish.  Not too yellow, not too brown.  Just pure awesomeness. 

And then Lowes & Home Depot stopped carrying it. 


Knowing that they were clearancing it out, I have been on the hunt every time I am near a L or HD.  And I've always found squat.  Until yesterday!  I stumbled upon 10 cans of this goodness at the only HD in the area I hadn't tried yet. 

What was I to do?  You bet your butt I bought all ten cans.  And did not even get a second look from any of the employees.  Weren't they worried I was a Huffer?  Grafittier?  Clearly not.  And the fact that I still use terms like huffing and graffiti shows that I am *so* not cool. 

But my kids could have told you that.

Anywhoo, moving on.  Let's check out some Rustoleum Metallic Brass in action, shall we?

And of course, the uber-awesome Grace Mitchell from A Storied Style recently used Rustoleum Metallic Brass on her front porch curtain rod DIY for Home Depot's Patio Style Challenge.

I cannot wait to start using my hoarded cans.  What would you use it on?


  1. I think I get you now! I thought you were just crazy with all the changes. But I get the procrastination when "you're just not sure"

  2. Oh yes one more thing... You just figured out you were a hoarder ?
    I've seen your shop and the miles of fabric in your workroom ! HELLO!
