Mini Spruce Up

I know it's late in the day, but Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!  CG is a world class dad and one of the things he's called in our home is "Lord of the Flame."  Whether it's cooking over a campfire or at home on the grill, he loves to cook with fire.  Unfortunately his grill was looking a little sad.

There was even a bit of rust going on.

A new grill was definitely not in our budget, and really ours works great, so along with the gift from the kids(a new electric razor) he got a spruced up grill from me.  I scrubbed the grill down, sanded off the rust spots, and bought some Rustoleum high-heat spray paint.

I taped off the granite and stainless steel parts and sprayed on several coats.

Voila!  Brand new looking grill.

Thanks for popping in and checking out this quick spruce up.  I'm linking this up to Between Naps on the Porch's Metamormhosis Monday.

  1. I cannot let DH see this grill!
    Dropping by from Met Monday. I hope you'll come see the safari nursery.


  2. Nice!! I am always tempted to buy these sprays but have no real use for them as of yet...maybe next year our grill will need a touch up! :)

  3. What a great wife doing all that for the hubby! The grill looks awesome, almost brand new and I love all the storage space there seems to be down below...

  4. The grill looks great. It was already a cool grill, so glad you refurbished.
    Gifts of our time are often the best. I know he loved it. Hugs, Ginger

  5. You win the best wife award for the week! What a labor of love that was -- sure looks beautiful!
