Have you ever had one of those weeks where your to do list was turned right on its head? That’s been my week. I’d hoped to have a whole bunch of painting projects finished by now, but alas, I haven’t had the time to even open the closet door, let alone reach for the paintbrush!!
Thankfully, I do have quite a few projects in the archive of this blog that fits the bill for today’s topic. I just love how paint can take ordinary objects and turn them into something completely different! Here’s a few centerpiece projects from the past:
Plain white house paint transformed these ordinary jars (some mason jars and some spaghetti sauce jars) into some of my all-time favorite decor items. Add a little burlap, canvas fabric and ribbons and they’re ready to be sittin’ pretty!
This poor, plain wooden box was just one cut-out heart away from being a totally 80s decor item. (It was being used as a garbage can!) A little pink paint, dark wood stain, and white lettering gave it a new exciting life!
Underneath the painted mason jar vases is another decor item I reach for often. It started out as a plain, orphan little cupboard door. A few coats of aqua blue mis-tint house paint made it shiny and new ~ a pop of pretty where ever it sits! (I’ve since noticed how some people put handles on each end, making it even more “tray-like”.)
I’m sure that some of you have used paint to transform ordinary things into extra-ordinary art, too. What did you do??
