Lovely Little Side Table

I picked up this lovely little mid-century modern side table.

It has two drawers and some lovely features that I thought needed highlighting. I've been jumping on the gold craze lately (see here and here) and I thought that might be a great way to do the highlighting.

First, I chose a fun color of spray paint called sea glass (made by Krylon) for the base.

Gold accents came next:

I love the effects! I can't believe I've been having so much fun with gold!

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!

Art Deco Dresser- Lace Pattern Tutorial

I've actually managed to get a big project done! It's almost a miracle. My husband pointed out this dresser at a garage sale for $5!

For $5 how could I go wrong? The art deco handles alone are amazing! Hubby had to do some repair work to it. It needed a few boards replaced. Then it was my turn to paint it!

I decided it needed it's art deco roots highlighted. So, I painted the whole dresser a light gray color as a base coat.

Then I decided to use a lace and spray paint technique on the drawers. First I draped my lace curtain over the drawer:

Then I sprayed over the drawer with a silver spray paint. I removed the curtain right away to find this:

Beautiful! After spraying the handles to match, the finished product is very nice if I do say so myself!

What a fun project!

Pinspiration: Gold Striped Wall Art

Yesterday, I posted a gold owl I recently redid. Today I thought I would share some fun artwork I made. I was inspired by several projects I've seen recently on Pinterest like this one:

and this one:

and maybe this one as well:

so I decided to make my own fun canvas art. Here's what I came up with:

I do enjoy the little things. Things such as this artwork.

Gold Owl

Gold everything is all over Pinterest these days, so for the next couple days I thought I would post some gold projects I've done recently. (I promise someday soon, I'll show my craft area all nice looking!)

I found this great owl at Goodwill the other day:

I love this guy! But, he needed a little updating in my mind, so I broke out my trusty Rust-oleum spray paint and gave him a shine!

What do you think? I think he turned out pretty handsome. Come back tomorrow to check out another small gold project.

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!
