It’s cheap, it’s quick, and it can refresh an item to give it instant NEW LIFE!! It had been so long since I had spray-painted something I almost forgot how magical it can be. Before Spray Paint
Here are three items that recently got a new coat of paint and a fresh life in my home.
First, this fabulous painting with expressive brush strokes and a 70’s vibe.
Second, a mirror with a cornucopia of wooden fruit… strange? Perhaps, but for some reason I was drawn to it 🙂
a pair of lamps from Amazon. They had the exact shape I wanted but the colors didn’t quite mesh with my space.
Like every good spray painting project, it started with a thorough cleaning.
Then I taped everything off with frog tape and computer paper.
Once it was all taped up, it got hauled outside for a fresh coat of spray paint.
After Spray Paint
I added a
new lampshade and painted the lamp base antique white. I love how it brightened everything up and really allowed the lampshade to shine.
The mirror got painted
antique white and made a nice addition to the overflow guest room.
And lastly, I spray-painted the picture frame a
glossy meadow green. I feel like it made the whole painting a bit more fun and lively.
Spray painted all the things!
Replaced the lampshade to add a custom look.
A few cans of spray paint can do wonders!
Be patient and thorough as you’re taping off the parts you don’t want painted.
Recap and What’s Next?
If you’re just catching up, here are the previous posts in the “before and after parade!”
Tomorrow I’ll be talking about styling a bookcase and showing you our sweet built-in bookcase on the stairs.
See you then!
I love how more delicate the mirror looks after being painted!’
I love that too! It’s like magic ✨
