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!
