Spray paint has been my best friend during this nursery project. I purchased 3 cans of white spray paint and so far, I've been able to complete 6 different projects!
This name plaque is my most recent undertaking. After spray painting and old frame white, I mod podged (my other best friend) the flags onto it and stamped her name. I plan to stamp her birth date on it as well as soon as I know what that is.
Here's the dreadful before--found these at goodwill for $1.91 a piece. I showed Ben who commented, "Um, I think you paid too much for those." I think I got a deal.
I had to work to get the picture off--it was stuck on pretty good, but with the help of a steamer, it eventually came clean.
I think it looks pretty cute for $1.91. If you're wondering where I got the printable bunting, here's the link. Also, I want to point out the book I won from Elise's blog Inspiration Surrounds, Creativity Abounds a few week's ago! So excited to read it with Lucia!
I thought I'd share my other projects--just so you can see them up close:
My Baby Beluga goodwill whale find...
Sits proudly on the top shelf...Can you see the wooden iris frame below it? That was pre-painting...
Here is is now in an updated shot. I like it white so much better. (Again, another goodwill find!)
This little mirror was easily transformed...
And is hanging out in the reading nook!
You've seen these, but here you go again: the wooden frames that I accidently destroyed turned into this lovelies...
I think I even like them better without the glass!
These fun brass duckhead bookends seemed like the perfect whimsical addition to a nursery...
But they didn't make it in the room. That's okay, though, because I like them in my room!
And lastly, Lucia's nightlight. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a before picture of this one, but it was a brass candle holder. A coat of white paint and an LED candle make for a unique nightlight!
What have you transformed with spray paint?
