I'll show you how I easily got from this:
It's called the Power of Spray Paint........
One of my favorite colors is at Lowes called Oil Rubbed Bronze by Rustolum. I just sprayed it on. Simple as that. I bought the "grass" from Walmart for 3.00. Total cost for project was $5.00
Heavy green vase: $2.00
Spray paint: had on hand
How about this tacky gold plate holder.
Spray paint had on hand
What about lamps! The thrift stores are FULL of gorgeous lamps....that is if you can picture espresso brown instead of pale peach!
Here was a $4.00 lamp that hardly needed anything. Just a simple updated coat of aged copper on the base.
I have put my foot down on buying any more lamps though. I mean unless my friends would like them as gifts I have no where else to put them!!!
Check out what A Few Good Pieces did with cheap OAK (blahh) thrift store mirrors!
Ain't this a beauty! Don't worry....I have an entire plan for this box. Can you see it painted? What about with the lid being in chalkboard paint with whatever is inside written on it. Maybe it will be a box to put all our chargers in? Hide those ugly cords! Stay tuned and come back later to see the "big" reveal.
Have you had any amazing spray paint turn around? Please link to your blog with some ideas.
