A few small thrifty redos....



I thought I would participate in Metamorphis Monday this week with a few small projects I have finished up....Nothing spectacular, but I do love them! After your done here, go over and check everyone elses out!! You will be blown away at all the wonderful ones, the Host Susan from Between Naps on The Porch has an AWESOME one to share!



This I paid $2 for, it was an ugly gold color and very blotchy. LOVE it now! All it took was a few coats of heirloom white spray paint and a little distressing!




This is definately my FAVORITE, seriously I love this and want 20 more, haha! It was 2.99 at Goodwill and the bottom was just wood color, I spray painted it glossy black and added some little pears to it, I want to find some green limes or something for it.


This cake stand was from Goodwill, it was a horrible gold, I was bad and forgot a lot of before pictures, that happens when you find so many goodies, and get so excited to paint them, haha. I was just playin around with it, I have no idea what I will display on it...I am sure I will find something.



Another picture of it....Love love love the heirloom white spray paint!





A finial that was brown, of course painted with some heirloom white paint and distressed a bit. Love it!




This was just a bottle I found in a box of stuff I scored from freecycle, I think it's pretty!





Don't forget to go and enter my giveaway here!!!!

Oh darn, I clicked away before my last comment was saved LOL! I really like that cheese dome with the board painted black!! It looks great. I bought one this week at Goodwill but it smelled so bad I had to return it. I'm still on the hunt :0)

I've only recently started spray painting, but it is addictive and you're really great at transforming things with it! I really like the cake stand with the little pitcher of lavender (??) and the birds nest- it looks great like that!

Great projects! I'm always amazed at what a little paint can do. Spray painting sure does make it easier to turn blah items into great ones. Cheap and easy, my favorite!
