I’m excited about this link party today for several reasons. I know from experience that after looking at the things that bother you about your own home for so long, the only option sometimes seems to be to buy something new or to rip something out and start fresh. I also know from experience that when those options aren’t feasible, it can leave us always in that “wanting mode” and just dissatisfied with our home, in general. And, that’s not a fun place to be. . .
So, I’m hoping that by sharing your “working with what you have” projects, we’ll all be inspired to see our homes—and the things that bug us about them—in a new light. Or, maybe we’ll save a little money by seeing potential in something we already own.
Case in point, I’ve been shopping for the right side table for our living room for the last few months. The silver pedestal table wasn’t mixing in well, and I was basically just over it. But, in a last ditch effort, I grabbed some flat black spray paint and the same metallic paint I posted about here.
And, yes, I fixed my bad tape job with a Sharpie. (It’s not the first time.)
The black and gold works so much better now, and I love how it looks with the reading lamp that I “borrowed” from my son’s room:
I’m looking forward to seeing how you’ve been working with what you have. It’s a pretty broad topic so be as creative as you want! This will be good :)
I would really appreciate it if you would include this button in your post and link back to my blog:
