Spray Paint!

I have a new obsession. It's called Spray Paint. My cousin Kelly sent me a before and after link of a spray painted lamp. Wow! What a transformation! Game On... So along with spray paint, I go to thrift stores and find really UGLY stuff and give it a face lift. It's an inexpensive way to beautify your home without spending a lot of $$. I also try and shop at thrift stores that put money back into the community. That way it's a win win all around!

Take these really awful looking plastic faux wood (yes plastic wood!) candle holders.


With a little white matte spray paint they turn into this:


This mirror I decided was really cute, but it needed a pop of color.

So with some glossy hot pink spray paint, you get this:

Or for fun I found this bust of Napoleon, but he was in serious need of amakeover



And viola, this would make Josephine swoon...



FYI, the lamp base, I spray painted that one too. It was brass before, and that would never do.


Spray paint is life changing!

My monkey lamp is drying in the garage! Almost ready for coat #4! Of spray paint, not a winter coat.
This could be addicting... :-)

My daughter SPRAY PAINTED the monkey lamp that I bought for her? How could she do that?!
Probably because it's her lamp and I bet it looks fantastic:-)
