When we moved into our old house about 5 years ago, I decorated everything dark and brown. That was more the style back then, and I hadn’t really found my style. I have always been drawn to light, neutral colors, however, so when we were designing our new house I knew I wanted white and lighter colors. This left me with a lot of dark decorations that didn’t fit in my new house. I have slowly been changing and updating my decorations and furniture over the past year. Our budget doesn’t comply with buying every single thing brand new, so I have been getting creative.
I bought Valspar’s Metallic spray paint in brilliant silver (color 66010) at Lowe’s and spray painted all of the hardware for my bedroom furniture. It makes such a huge difference! The furniture now looks a lot more modern and it looks like it actually fits in my house now. This spray paint went on evenly and dried quickly. Make sure to use plastic gloves when you are painting because otherwise you’ll have it all over your hands.
This was the best $6 I have spent lately! It completely updated my room and I am so happy with the results.
Note: The lamp is from Hobby Lobby – make sure to buy it when the lamps are 50% off (which is regularly) or use the weekly 40% coupon. I never buy anything full price there because it is either on sale or you can use the coupon.
