It’s no secret that I have a small obsession with spray paint. So today I am sharing how I was able to update a little space in my sunroom using one of my new favorite paints that I shared here.
I have had these bookcases for many years. They are made from reclaimed barn wood and I have shared them before. They are still in my sunroom but since we updated the sunroom with new furniture and changed up the colors in the room the accessories in the book case were the last thing to be updated.
I really didn’t want to go out and buy all new accessories for my bookcases but I wanted to lighten them up, they were dark maroon, mustard yellow and green. It’s funny how your taste changes over the years.
I painted the large vase and even the small photo frame using Rust-oleum Chalked Spray Paint. The stain on the barn wood is pretty dark and I wanted all of the accessories to be white, cream or grey.
This pot was mustard yellow. It’s a great piece and was easily updated with paint.
I always felt like the corners in the sunroom were a bit dark, but now I am loving it with this simple change.
I think I might lighten the bookcases next…by removing some of the dark wax. They were like that when I bought them many moons ago. They are looking a bit too dark for me now in the lighter room.
Another thing I would like to change, even though I am not ready to mention this to the hubs just yet is the wall color. I know exactly what he is going to say, “It’s not even a year old!” And he would be correct but it just looks muddy to me now. I want it to be a more crisp beige/grey. I can paint furniture all day long but the one thing I cannot do and will no longer even attempt, is painting a wall. I don’t know what happens but I cannot do it…at all! Anyway, that’s another conversation for different day!
Remember when I shared my DIY Photo Clipboard? Well, I made another one and stained it a weathered grey.
I am sure my boys love that I am sharing this picture all over the place. It’s and oldie but a goodie! Look at all that hair! Gosh I miss those days! #cuties!!! It’s an old Christmas card that has been propped up in the bookcase and I had leftover wood and decided to make another DIY photo clipboard.
Updating this space with paint was so easy and I think it made a huge impact on the room.
Until Next Time,
