This week, I've become a big fan of spray-paint. It's such a fast & easy solution to "repurposing" and DIY projects...and the fact that I don't have to search around the house for a paintbrush is a huge bonus.
Here are some projects I've been working on this week.
here's what it was before
((sorry for the ugly iphone pic))
I scored the frame for $1.99 from Pier1. I love wearing purple, but for decor...not so much. I primed it (spray paint) and then spray painted it green. For now it's holding this fun print from My Little Buffalo, but in the future, I think I'll use it for my handmade market displays.
Egg Carton Jewelry Holder
I bought two ceramic egg cartons (one white, one robin's egg blue) from Anthropologie. I thought they'd be perfect for holding covered button earrings during my handmade markets.
Once I brought them home, I wondered if I could just make them myself. Same story, primed then spray painted. They turned out ok...I definitely won't be using them on my displays, but dang..it's pretty dang convenient to hold spare jewelry on my bedside table! Go ahead, Real Simple. Use this for your "new uses for old things" feature ;)
Chalk board canvas.
I had an old canvas that I primed, used two coats of chalkboard spray-paint and voila. A perfect mini chalkboard.
No lie, I've been on the hunt for an owl like this for over a year. My bestie, Ari, sent me a text with a picture of this ((still don't know if she was being sarcastic or not haha)) and said "good vintage or bad vintage?" I said BUY IT & SHIP IT TO ME PRONTO! In a more polite way of course..
Primed it and again, a few coats of ivory spray-paint. I love all the texture it has from the wings, feathers, etc.
Have you done any fun DIY projects lately?!
