I recently did a little painted bathroom vanity makeover in our powder room. Before the holidays, we brightened up the powder room by installing new board and batten trim. (Thanks Dad!) If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a few pics of our progress. Everything looked so fresh and pretty in there with the exception of the bathroom… Read More
Hello there, friends! Happy Fall! With colder weather ahead , I’m taking full advantage of any days that are still warm enough for painting outside. I’ve been painting up a storm over the past few weeks! Our entry doors needed some TLC, so I recently updated them with a pretty shade of blue called Behr Marquee Dayflower.

Our basement guest bedroom needs a little makeover. (Gosh, I love when that happens!) In addition to making-over the boys’ bedroom (I’ll post on that room tomorrow), I’ve been thinking about how to create a pretty and soothing bedroom for guests.

Seriously, is there anything better than a spray paint makeover? It’s one of the fastest, cheapest, easiest, and most fail-proof projects around.
Take for example, this neglected iron patio table which has been kicking around for a few years. It’s been made-over with spray paint so many times that I can’t even remember what color it was when I bought it! It was red for awhile to match our red front door (before I painted it blue), and it appears that I later started to paint it pewter. You know, I can’t even remember doing that, lol. I’m not sure if I ran out of spray paint or disliked it, but in any case, it was left half-finished in the elements for a year or so and started to rust.
