This is a story about spray paint and how it fixes everything. Well, probably not everything and fix isn’t the right word, but work with me here. It’s been a long week.
I’ve been inspired by bloggers like the Nester who take ordinary, inexpensive objects and mistreat them into beautiful objects. I really haven’t been focused as much as I usually am on decorating this house since it’s constantly under renovation, but I got on a decorating kick last week and went crazy.
I picked up some old (and free!) plates and some spray paint to go from this:
I used one can of spray paint for each color, superglued some picture hangers on the back and nailed them up. I really like them.
We’ll see how long it takes for them to start falling of the wall.
Total cost: $14
I also picked this urn up, free, and spraypainted it from this:
It needs something more to give it some weight and I’ll probably change the filler out for the seasons. And yes, that’s pumpkin. It was $1. I’m trying to summon autumn into visiting me early this year.
Total cost: $4
The last thing I spraypainted was this tulip vase:
It was so ugly (think poorly painted pink roses) that I couldn’t bear taking a before shot. So this is all you get. This and our dented wall. Because I care.
Total cost: $1.98
Four new projects for $20. Not bad.
