You may get a chuckle out of this post when I share the story with you.
You see I have been in the midst of giving my little office/loft area a face lift.
On a small budget, as always.
Basically, a can of paint and some time.
I did not buy a thing new for this room makeover.
This is what it look liked before I started.
Nothing wrong indeed. However, I was tired of the dark wood cabinet and thought a simple solution would be to paint it.
More on that later…after this post soon, I promise.
So you see that pretty piece above the armoire?
I bought that at Pier I a few years back.
If I recall, it was a steal. Originally over $100.00, I scored it for $30.00.
It is a nice heavy piece of wood with pretty carved flowers.
It however, was NOT going to go with my current redo
So I thought…hmmm…
I wonder if I spray paint it, then hand paint in the some of the flowers with craft paint??? It may or may not work, so let’s give it try.
I did just that!
HOWEVER, after I spray painted the piece, I totally forgot it about outside for over a week.
UGH, I thought crap now it is probably ruined.
it was not…
So I got out my craft paints and turned into
I just changed up the decor some.
Found this candle sconce under my bed.
I believe I used these as wall decor one time in our guest bedroom.
QUICK TUT before the full reveal
Spray painted the piece first.
Let dry outside for over a week and forgot about it.
Artist brushes and craft paint to fill in some of the flowers for detail.
Lightly waxed and sanded the piece.
DONE..it was a total fluke that it even turned out.
Full reveal soon!
Thanks for stopping by today.
