These aren't going to be huge, extravagant before & afters by any means, but I like them. :)
This "thing" ... I have no idea what it really is. I just saw it and loved the design on it. It was $1.25.
We just covered it in white spray paint, easy peasy, and it looks way better. The before picture doesn't really show how dirty and dingy it looked. Anyway, it looks great now!
These wall hanging candle holders were $5.00 each at Savers. (My goodness, I love that place.) I love the design on them so much! Josh actually found these, and just knew I'd like them. He's just good like that. :)
I love this design!
Anyway, we painted two of these black, and one of them white. The white one still doesn't have a home yet. But I had a plan for these ones. :)
So here's our really sad beige-and-white-and-tan living room.
You can see the candle holders hanging on either side of our finally-framed wedding photo. We also got a floating wall shelf at Savers for $5, and got the longer one at Home Depot to go with it.
You can see the "thing" tucked away behind a picture on the smaller shelf. I like it so much. I don't know why. :)
And I just got filler for that awesome green vase today. No picture of that yet. :)
So much more inviting now, don't you think?
Goodness knows, I'm not done yet. I definitely want to paint and do a few more things in this room. The thing is, all that costs money! So, until we have some of that, this works! :)
