So, this weekend I had a super bargain weekend, which spurred me to look at some of the things I already had around my house and figure out how I might repurpose them. I tend to get tired of things easily and often buy new things (like clothes), so I’m trying to avoid that with housewares and furniture. Well, I had this piece of um…artwork, I guess? But, I was tired of it and ready to put it in the garage or hide it in a guest room that I never go in because I was tired of looking at it, and it didn’t really go with the rest of my stuff.
I bought it at Target about 3 years ago and it just lost its interest. But, I thought with a fresh coat of spray paint, I’d probably like it again. So I picked up some metallic silver spray paint.
It’s a little pricier than the others, but at $5 a can, it was still worth it. So, I pulled out a tarp and got to work:
I quickly realized that it wasn’t even going to take a full can, so I grabbed some black picture frames I had and sprayed those too:
This spray paint dried so fast too. This is great for me because I have zero patience when it comes to crafts. I always enjoy starting them, but if it’s something that takes a long time, I lose interest fast. The whole project took about an hour and a half, and that included full drying time.
Here it is all finished:
And, a little perspective on where it sits in our house:
I’ll tell you all about that hutch in the picture tomorrow. It was one of my weekend finds and I have big plans for it!
