Pinterest Inspired

Who doesn't love a good "Pin" idea?

I've been finding a little time lately to be inspired by some Pinterest projects.

I pinned this quote above a long time ago and finally turned it into a picture for Adrian's bedroom. All it took was a thick canvas, acrylic paint, stencils, and a pencil. He thinks it's pretty cool.


If you don't like it... paint it. 
If it's ugly... paint it.
If it doesn't match... paint it. 
and save some $$
(those are my thoughts as of lately)

Here's a few of the many things I've spray painted recently. John thought I was getting a little obsessed with it. If I want the final look to be shiny I add a layer of Mod Podge to seal in the paint and finish the look.

more spray painting...

Thrift store lamp $10
Spray paint $6
Lamp shade $14

$30 isn't too bad compared to similar ones I looked at that were between $50-$60

So that's what I've been squeezing into a little bit of my spare time lately.


Update: Another Thrift Lamp and New Paint for my Mirror

Lamp was a pretty pea green.
(I like black I guess)

Paint is such a great fix! I love the white frame with that nautical themed print. It really makes the artwork pop!

Speaking of paint, did you know that Chicago has banned the sale of spray paint within city limits?? Thank goodness I'm moving back to Ohio ;)

I am a huge fan of repainting!
That's how I did my gallery wall, I spray painted all my hodge podge frames black.
Keep up the great work.
And the quote is adorable.
