This Saturday I was feeling especially adventurous (I am going to blame it on the fact that bug I mentioned earlier). I ventured into the the world of Spray Paint. I have never met a paint I didn't love more! It is an instant transformation! From Drab to Fab in mere seconds! My roommates better watch out, because anything I can spray paint, is most likely to be spray painted in the near future. So, what did I make exactly?
Well, after carefully reading (and disregarding, oops!) the spray paint instructions, I quickly set forth to spray paint a nice little wooden basket I bought at a garage sale for $.75. When I first bought it, it was this nasty brown color (Sorry! I didn't get any before pictures!). And, our entry way is mostly black...so I needed a quick solution. Never fear! Spray Paint is Here!!!
It looks great, right?! And it took me all of 5 minutes! I needed to find more projects, pronto!
Now, I also found this frame that was the perfect size for something cool. The lady asked $10.00, which I realize now was way too much, but I'm happy with it. My first hope was to possibly create something similar to this. But, I couldn't do that with this oval frame. So, ere go Plan B. Which I am ecstatic about!
Meet After (the coloring in my bathroom is awful, I apologize):
Again, so easy and simple. I just spray painted it a fun turquoise and then screwed in some picture hanging wire. Voila! Sweet and Simple Earring Holder! I have been dying for one of these for about 2 years now. If I would have known it was this easy, it could have been done ages ago. Well, maybe not. I tend to procrastinate.
And the very best part is, it fulfills numero 51 on my list!!! Whoop!
Now, what will I spray paint next???
