Rustoleum Revamp

Many of you are already aware of my relationship that started this fall with the tall sleek…can of spray paint. Once I found my true makeover love, I could not put the can down. Suddenly, a whole new world opened before my eyes. I could transform monstrously ugly items into wonderful home decor staples. Ah paint, how did I ever live without you?

So when I found out that Shanty 2 Chic was having a Rustoleum party, how could I not join in and give you a recap of some of my transformations. Here it is, my fall fling with a can of black and a can of heirloom white. Ah yes, I feel a trip to the hardware store coming on.

Shanty 2 Chic

Some canyon black and an eight legged friend can take a 50 cent garage sale mirror from gaudy to spooky.

A bit of heirloom white can $1 garage sale urn from blah to voila! I have plans for that horrendous topiary too…if I can ever get to it. 😉

A little more heirloom white can turn a pair of pedestal candlesticks from animal to minimal.

But, probably the best update of all is kicking my light fixtures brass. Goodbye shiny gold! Hello black and bold! I used Gray primer and Satin Black on this baby.

Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me. I hope to be creating more soon!

    Hello Michelle ~I’ve just strolled in for my first visit…I’ve enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You’ve got so many wonderful ideas. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
    We share similar taste for so many of the same creative design elements.

    As fall came to a close I looked forward to winter (that’s fast approaching), bringing a festive inspiration for a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking in between.
    Don’t you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
    My cat also appreciates the evergreens and an occasional ping pong toss of my (newly created and not yet dried) ornaments…

    I’ve bookmarked you in my favs.
    I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
    Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

    Sweet holiday wishes,
