OK, if you have read my blog before or know me at all, you know that I LOVE SPRAY PAINT!
And of course with a new house I have found a plethora of things that are crying out for a spray paint makeover. Today I will show you a couple of the MANY I have already undertaken.
When we moved in the family room had this lovely white and gold ceiling fan:
Well--no--I didn't spray paint THAT ceiling fan. Instead I found another fan at our local Re-Store for super cheap. It was PERFECT except it had light wood fan blades (which I somehow forgot to get a picture of! Darn it when that happens!) They were almost the color of my table--UNTIL they got a shot of brown spray paint.
The other thing in this room that was SCREAMING at me from the moment I saw it was this GOLD/BRASS TRIM on the FIREPLACE!
I couldn't wait to spray those babies up!
So that's just what I did.
Those pieces come out super easy (especially when you have your hubby take them out for you).
And after a couple coats of this awesome stuff:
Bye bye brass!
Ahhh. Much better.
(Except we obviously still have some work to do on this bad boy! But still--what an improvement!)
I think those two little transformations really make a big impact on the room. And I guess it also helped that we have changed just about everything else in the room as well!
BEFORE (with Previous Owners Furnishings):
And of course this is not a TRUE after picture yet--as the fireplace is still in a state of demolition and none of the base board trim had been painted white and put back on, and the mantel and windowsills still need a coat of white paint...but at this moment this is where the room stands and I am pretty darn happy with it!
