Birthday and beyond...

Thanks to all of you who sent me birthday wishes yesterday! It was a wonderful birthday filled with junking, good food, and my most beloved friends. I am blessed with so much.

One of the things with which I am blessed this week is camp! This week the kids are in day camp which gives me time to lay around on my couch imagining how much better my life would be if my floors were white catch up on some of those projects that I've been meaning to get to.

Today's project involves two kinds of things: Junk and Spray Paint.


I picked up these lovelies for a grand total of $12 and knew that once paired with some red spray paint I could turn them into shiny red gems.

The first layer of paint always makes me a little nervous...

Maybe I should have primed.




You know why I don't prime? It's boring. Now you know. Judge me if you must, but when it comes to painting I have a very short attention span.




I know exactly where the candle holders and the mirror are going but the shelve thingy has me a bit stymied.

Where would you put and what would you put in it? Chocolate is always an acceptable answer.

next to a sunny window. philodendrons in white milk glass planters. something with yellow and blue stripes, or strawberries/cherries, tucked into the corners. nothing on the narrow shelves - I like the shadows.

I like the lack of primer...think it gives it character!
Happy Belated Birthday, sorry I missed it I was in Chicago and away from my facebook calander.
Hope you had a great day

Don't you know waaay down deep in your bones you could fix everything wrong in the world with a can of spray paint? I know I get that feeling every time I transform another treasure...

You really have me thinking about giving new life to "junk". I can't wait to go out looking now! Thanks for all the inspirations!

I would have wished you a happy birthday, but I was out of town. I don't want you to think I'm a slack blogtown neighbor! I'm glad you had a wonderful day. Now I'm off to buy spray paint.
