Sprucing Up an "Ordinary Bicycle"...

I love how they call this an "Ordinary Bicycle"... We did see one of these at the 4th of July Parade this year...

Here's mine that I spruced up for the 4th with just a couple cans of white Spray Paint!! I don't know what my life would be like without Spray Paint!... Do I hear an AMEN!!!

Put some pretty flowers in the basket and called it "Good"...

I know a lot of you have painted bicycles... I'd love to hear your stories!!!!, xoxo~Kathy.

OH! Scroll down one more photo..... They'll make you smile, Arn't they cute!!!!!... Ha!


  1. I keep looking for an old bike to do this with. Love the decorations ... great job! TTFN ~ Marydon

  2. Love what you did with the old bicycle. Cute picture of the grandkids. Can't wait for mine to be that old. I have two, a two-year-old and a newborn. The two-year-old is already developing a personality. He is so much fun.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm curious about the other blog listed on your profile (Hotflash). Sounds like a fun title, but you don't have any posts there yet.

  3. Love it. I just think it's adoreable. Hugs, Marty

  4. Hi Kathy, It's so nice to meet you- thanks for visiting me today. Love the spray-painted bike- who knew you could do the entire bike? Not me...
    Wow- I am in awe at the flowers in the bike basket! They are gorgeous. I tend towards a brown thumb, so when I want color, I purchase a pre-made pot of flowers! Then Mr. Sullivan has to water them because I tend to forget. whew, I'm glad that I have other talents because flowers and gardens are not my strong suit! I will come back to visit again! :-) Sue

  5. I love the bike, but the kids are one good-looking adorable cute bunch!!! I hope you have this framed in your house!!

  6. hee hee!!! I love it! My bike is trying to rust for me. I scraped the paint, removed the chain, and cut the bar and gears off to make it look old!!! I like yours done in looks very crisp and country!

  7. The bike looks fabulous..., and I have to say that I've never seen one like it. What a great idea!

  8. Kathy, I adore the bike transformation! Love the beautiful flowers in the bike basket, too adorable! You clever girl!

    Adorable grandbabies btw!


  9. My little bike looks just like yours.. albeit in need of spray paint! Yours turned out perfectly!

  10. Kathy. This is so wonderful!!!! I love that you painted each and every thing white!!! So beautiful ~ hope you have a great week, xxoo, Dawn

  11. I'll give ya an amen for spray paint. Love the redo. And the group of grands...what a good-looking bunch, but then look how cute Granny is ;-)

    Hope your week is full of fun,

  12. My mom just did the same thing! She painted hers black and propped it against one of the trees in her front yard.

    Great minds think alike :)

  13. So far I've left my bike in the old rusty blue paint. I have found baskets for it, and am excited to have it closer to being done! I'm thinking I like your paint idea though....

  14. Dear Kathy...I would love to have one of those. HOW sweet it is! My poor porch is so crowded now that there is no room..but one would be so nice!
    Your amazing! :)

  15. What a cute bike -- and adorable grands! Looks like a great concert too -- and the food -- well words can't even express they yummyness of that! Great posts!

  16. Hi, I just found you thru another blog and I love what you did with the bike. It looks very pretty in white. :)
    I hope you don't mind me following your blog.
