We just redid my son's room. He wanted a military theme.
There's a ceiling fan in in the room. It was white with gold trim. Not exactly fitting for the theme.

A can of flat black, a can of desert tan, a can of olive greem and a few 'accessories' and now it fits very well into an 11 year old boy's room.

Looks like you've used a can of Krylon before!

Thanks for the compliments. It did turn out pretty good.

Brian, you are correct. Other than 9mm, those are the only 2 calibers ever used by the US military that I reload or shoot.

I was teaching my son how to spray paint so we had to do the blades over a few times. He was slow in grasping the important concepts of "short bursts", "hold the can about a foot away" and "keep the can moving when spraying" We got a lot of runs at first then he finally started to get the hang of it.

Glad to hear that the project taught a child something as well as spending time with his father
