Today I thought I'd share with you some of my latest projects.
I'd picked up an unfinished wood shelf last fall and had it in my "to paint" stash.
It was a bit boring in its unfinished state, and I wanted to add something special to it.
Finally inspiration struck! I painted it a pretty light blue (my favorite color!), then added this pretty Frenchy stencil by DecoArt.
I must say that it turned out even cuter than I thought it would!
I love the curvy front, and the neat curved side brackets.
I'm always hunting for mirrors to transform. I found this over the winter when we were down south, and it was in a pretty sad state. It had been painted layers and layers of an awful rusty color and just wasn't very happy! So, after cleaning her up, I just knew she'd look prettier in pink!
She looks so much happier now, I think!
Next up are a pair of wood and metal vintage candle sconces. I'd had them in my stash forever, and had practically forgotten all about them (do you ever do that?). I painted them a soft light blueish gray chalk paint from DecoArt. I am really loving this color!
Geez, I should have taken "before" shots of all of my makeovers, but I guess I was just too excited to start transforming everything! Trust me that these sconces look oh so much better than their former boring dark brown finish with black metal accents!
I also used the same pretty blue gray to paint this crown moulding shelf.
I then used DecoArt's cream wax to give it a nice hand rubbed finish.
Now it's back to pink! I found this cute vintage wall pocket basket, which was originally white. I love the hobnail pattern, and the pretty ruffly top!
This is the second one that I've found, so I knew I wanted to go pink with this one, just like the previous one that I did about a year ago.
It's made by Burwood, as are these sweet little butterflies, that I found down in Georgia this winter.
I think they would look adorable in a little girl's room!
Since you know how much I love mirrors, I couldn't resist showing you this little cutie, below!
It is vintage, and actually found by hubby when we were out thrifting last week!
I guess I've trained him well, as he now has a very good eye!:)
The frame was a really ugly dark brown, and was practically begging me to paint it a bright and cheery aqua!
And last up is a tall wooden candlestick, which also was practically forgotten in my stash!
I painted it the same wonderful blue gray chalk paint that I showed you in some of the projects above.
I really love the carved details of this piece.
I used a darker cream wax from DecoArt to give it that aged look.
I've placed all of my creations in my Etsy shop if you'd like to take a look!
Hope you all gave a great day!
Now I'm off to find something else to paint!:)
