My hubs came home the other day, noticed a few "updates" to the house and said "You didn't ask me if I wanted that white!" He loves to joke with me about the changes I make around the house. What's so funny about it is that he couldn't care less about decorating, that is as long as I don't use pinks and purples everywhere. (Not that I would ever do that anyway.) I love earthy shades and he does too, so it works for us. You can guarantee that I will love just about anything blue, green, beige and especially white.
One of my favorite ways to decorate is to take old not-so-great-looking things and spray paint them! Here are some of my latest projects:
We have this horrible piano on our back porch that is too heavy to move (long story), so I decided to make use of the bench.
It was in awful shape, but with a little white paint it looks much better. To create a shabby chic look I rubbed some sandpaper along the edges. I really like the result.
Now it lives at the foot of our bed. I can't wait to put some fresh flowers there in the spring!
Since putting away our Christmas decor, I realized our bedside table needed a facelift.
I found the vintage window pane a while back and really wanted to use it somewhere in our bedroom. So on the bedside table it went.
Then I added the vintage books and one of our engagement pictures.

But what I'm really excited about is this lamp! It was a light gold color (which neither of us were crazy about), but now it is a lovely shade of blue! The lamp shade was a dark gold, but that was soon changed as well. I love this lamp now!
I love decorating that costs me next to nothing! Spray paint is seriously my best friend. Now if only I could paint all of our furniture white. (Just kidding babe!)
