The Magic of Spray Paint

I'm always on the hunt for re-purposing things in my home.  I used to decorate with a lot of dark, oil rubbed bronzed decor and I've seen how other bloggers have used what they have to change the look.  I'm all about that!  Especially since I still love what I own, just not the color of it!  So I purchased some Rustoleum's Heirloom White and went to town on some accessories around the house.

Here's a picture of them before: 
I had already started spraying the candlesticks when I realized I hadn't taken a picture!  As you can see in the second picture, they were a set of three in black.  So excited to use what I already have!  I spent just under 10 dollars on spray paint... using 40% off coupons from Hobby Lobby!
Here's a peek inbetween coats...
There's the Goodwill clock I showed you in a previous post!  
Almost finished with her transformation!  
What a difference spray paint can make!

Here are some of the pieces in their new homes!
The soap dispenser tray...  now it pops off the counter!   
Before, I couldn't really see it's beautiful detail!
One of my favorite DIY's...  These three painted wallpaper canvases were completely inspired by Thrifty Decor Chick!  For a full tutorial on how to make your own, click on the link!  Thanks, Sarah!  I "lurve" them!  
The mirror, birds and candlesticks make their home on our mantel!  So much better!

This is one of my favorite spots, I was inspired by 
Centsational Girl's kitchen and her dining room table decor.  Love it!  
I couldn't help but post lots of pictures!  
Here's the lamp base in the hallway outside our bedroom.
The other pieces have made their home in our entertainment center, master bath and bedroom.  I'll be sharing in a future post how I used these old but new treasures.

I scoured the house and found some more pieces!  Come back to see what I've done with them.  Some will be painted Heirloom White and others will receive my newest discovery... Krylon's Watermelon and Blue Ocean Breeze!
An oldie but goodie... I found this cheese dome at Goodwill for $3!  I plan on making my own cheese dome cloche!  Thanks to Sarah and Allison!  Hope you're having a great day!

Heirloom White is my favourite "go-to"colour these days; LOVE how you've rejuvenated your accessories!

What a great idea you shared with us, My mother bought same large frames too. She is going to put wire in them to hold her jewelery. Cool idea too. You painted in Halloween colours that is more attractive.
