Do you ever get a mood where you feel like you need some freshing up but don't want to spend a lot of money in the process? I kind of had one of those days this past week and I found myself holding a brand new can of spray paint (it's amazing how spray paint can revolutionize one's life!). After my last chalkboard re-do (see that post here) I found myself thinking RED for the accent color in my kitchen/living room. I found these gorgeous toile curtains that I just fell in LOVE with but the red was slightly deeper than the apple red color I had painted. Easy peasy to change and not much money either!
I chose a more fitting red to match the curtains/pillows I am in the process of saving for (everyone's gotta have a goal!!) and this can fell into my hand!
Colonial Red=LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I decided to repaint the chalkboard frame as well as two picture frames in my living room. Here are what the frames looked like previously.
I got these frames for $1 at Joann Fabrics and I loved the detailing on them but the silver just wasn't working for me anymore. After two coats of paint, I had brand new frames that my husband didn't even recongnize! (I got the where did you by these look!! haha)
I love the new look it adds!! I love the little punch of color against my white end tables and it feels like I got something brand new! Now, I just need to get new pictures in these frames! I am constantly taking new ones but I am horrible about printing them (anyone with me on that?!)
Oh, and here is the new look of the kitchen chalkboard!
I've said it before and I am sure I will say it again, it's amazing what a little can of $4 spray paint will do!!
Hope you enjoyed my latest fixer uppers!! :) Have a great weekend!!
Lots of love from me to you!!
