I know you are all expecting the result post of the Pinterest Challenge. Well you're not getting it. At least not today because I am a day behind. I overestimated the amount of free time I would have with all the supplies I needed to gather and the wedding I had to attend. I am very ashamed and pinky promise to have a post by tomorrow. It's coming along nicely though!
The good news is that I was able to put the final coat of spray paint on a few more thrift store finds. A while ago I snagged an owl figurine and a nice oval frame for my future gallery wall. Here they are in their sad natural glory.
To be honest, they weren't all that bad. They just aren't the colour scheme I have going on. See that little chippie on the frame? I was hoping the new colour would hide the little imperfection and it definitely won't be visible among a bunch of other frames in the future gallery wall. So it's our little secret.
So I grabbed my favourite makeover weapon: a can of white spray paint. The owl took what-felt-like hundreds of coats because of all the crevices in the design. It's super important to do several thin coats than one or two thick goopy ones to avoid drips. I was as patient as possible and visited the spraying station in my garage a few times every evening to get good coverage.
Better, yes? Much. I was going for the ceramic vibe. And the chip is barely noticeable! Woop woop!
And let me surprise you with another fun makeover! I got this ORB jewelry tree a couple years ago from my old job. It used to match my teal-white-brown bedroom perfectly but since then I have moved and the decor has changed. So Mr. Tree needed a change too.
Here he is all white and cheery.
Maybe he would be even more cheery in a bright colour! Hmmm... Most of my jewelry is gold or silver so a bight colour would pop nicely I think. Thoughts? Coral? I love the idea of making something over to fit your new style instead of trashing it. Recycle reduce reuse, baby!
