Yes, You Can Paint a Bike

Last summer I got a bike for Max at a yard sale for $2. I was sure they left a 0 off the price, but I wasn't going to argue. It was too big for him last year, but now that he's 3 we're practicing. Max and I didn't have a problem with it being bright pink, but too many people are closed minded so I caved and painted it. 

Handy enough, I had his favorite color, orange on hand. I base painted it with yellow spray paint, then highlighted with orange. Not bad for $2 and leftover spray paint, right?

I love this! My son is getting very interested in having his own bike but our budget doesn't allow for a new bike and for some reason "boy" bikes are more costly than "girl" bikes are used. Now I know what to do if I find a girly bike the right size for my boy! Thank you :)
