Can you believe I actually did a DIY project? I’m surprised myself. But every now and then I do have an inspiration and I attempt to carry it out.
Our basement bathroom had a mirror in it. This mirror had a goldish frame and I wouldn’t say it was my favorite. I didn’t necessarily like it with the rest of my bathroom stuff. I hadn’t had time or taken time to shop for something else, nor did I really want to spend money on something else at this particular time. And on some things I like to wait until something jumps out at me as the exact thing I want for a certain spot or as something that I love.
I forgot to take a before picture until after I started painting!
So, the mirror had just been hanging there. Now and then I would glance at it and reflect on the idea to eventually change it to another mirror or cupboard. One day it hit me. “Paint it.” Aha. I am a little slow like that.
Definitely a brilliant idea. Spray paint has come to my rescue before, let’s try it again. While it wasn’t Annie Sloan Chalk Paint or Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and it wasn’t an awesome DIY project like my sister is so good at, it gave me a quick fix for now(and for a good while).
And I like it much better. And it makes me happy when I look at it. Are you like that? Do you have things in your house, that while there is absolutely nothing wrong with them, you just don’t love them? I’m very that way. I’m not a certified interior decorator, but when it comes to my home, I like filling it with things that I love. No one else has to love them or even like them, but if I do, I’m good.
So there you have it. Spray paint and improved. And even a claim to a DIY project!
Since I didn’t remember before pictures until I was painting, I don’t have a before picture of the mirror on the wall. Ah, well.
One more picture.
What’s something in your home right now that you don’t love and would change or replace if it was as easy as typing this sentence?
Me? Well, I have this upstairs rug……..
