Spray Paint-palooza

hardware light fixtures candy dish to be spray painted

Yep, I got out and did some spray painting this week, while the weather's still warm.  Hardware, two light fixtures (one thrifted, one from the master bedroom), and an old candy dish.

I painted all of the above in a nickel finish because they'll all be in the kitchen eventually, and that is paint that I already had.  Good-bye coppery finish!

The candy dish got painted yellow so it could live in the master bedroom.  (10 points to whoever can find the hidden deodorant in this picture.)


I also got this little feathery bowl on the same thrifting trip, but it was already a color I could use (Is white a color?), so I left it.

And here's a sneak peak of some shoe storage options we're considering for the mudroom. We're headed down to check them out today.  You can never have too many metal ammunition and military medical containers in your house ... Or what do you think?

    1. Yeah, I never would've thought of ammunition containers myself, but they look kind of cool!

    1. Thanks, Whitney! I have posted about my master bedroom. Probably before we met. It's not done yet, and I haven't much on it recently, but here's the original post.

  5. I've never thought of painting a glass container. You did a great job and they all look wonderful. The storage units will be super for all the shoes I'm sure your family wears!

    1. Painting glass is a great way to get what you want in the color you want. Those storage containers have been perfect for us!
