It has been a very busy week! I've been working on many different projects - both big and small. I'm still working on my foyer (which will take a while...) but I'm taking breaks to tackle small projects. Oh and that hutch I bought off of Craigslist the other day - I already bought the paint for it. I just couldn't wait. I'm ready to dive in. This could become my new favorite project (as of right now - this dresser is my favorite project). Take one last look -
Because it will be very different soon! And - since I knew I'd need to fill all of those shelves up with cute little accessories, I've been working on some projects already. Starting with this old candlestick -
Does it look familiar? It was part of the old junk I found (which I wrote about here). I described my first junk transformation here. So, I guess this is junk transformation two (if you're counting). I grabbed some spray paint at Walmart (for $3.48) and took the old candlestick outside -
I know - you were probably expecting me to go white (I've done the white spray paint thing a lot - check it out here and here.) but I wanted to be a little bolder. I chose Krylon Global Blue in gloss. After a few light coats (and a new white candle from Walmart), I now have this -
Well that's a little bolder! And I love it. I can't wait to add it to the new hutch. And for $5.48 (paint and candle) - it's a very inexpensive project. I'm happy to say that I do have a lot of extra paint in that can. I'm looking around to find something else that should be blue...
I also want to thank Melanie at Bear Rabbit Bear for featuring my Dresser Makeover this week -
And Michelle at Delicate Construction for featuring my Easy Art Project -
Thank you Melanie and Michelle - I really appreciate the acknowledgement!!
