    Could I ask what brand/color pink you used? It’s the perfect shade I have been searching for! Gorgeous pop of color with the gold hardware.

      I mean I wouldn’t do it up next to a fence but in the middle of a yard should be fine. The overspray isnt crazy but there is some! 🙂

    Oh thank you so much! Last time I spray painted the gate make my finger caught some paint although I wear nylon gloves, I can’t remove all of them until the next day after times and times wash my hand with water. I will have another project this weekend with paint brush, this tips will be very helpful.
