One of the projects we have going on is to re-design our guest bedroom, so this weekend, Imani and I took a little trip to our local Sally Ann's (Salvation Army) to see if we could find anything to go with the new look.
We found a couple of great Easter-related items that will (hopefully) fit into our Easter Tablescape. Here are a few of the things we found:
A couple of wooden candlesticks for $1:
This grubby duck who is in dire need of a fresh coat of paint (99 cents).
A grubby little bunny who also is in desperate need of a coat of paint (99 cents).
I fell in love with the size and shape of this nightstand and I liked the handles. All it needed was a fresh coat of paint (doesn't that usually solve everything?!)
I was hoping Jason would like it as much as I did. I stopped at Home Depot to pick up a can of white paint. This is where the stress set in. There are soooooo many shades of white to choose from! I settled on Valspar's Honeymilk because it was a creamy white, which I think will look nice with the new look we're going for.
By now, Jason is used to me bringing new projects home for him every weekend. And everyone wonders why our upstairs bathroom isn't complete yet . . .
Jason liked the night stand as much as I did, so he primed it, painted it and then brought it to me with some decisions to make.
Did I like the inside where the handle is blue or white?
Can you guess my answer?
Did you guess blue?
Or did you guess white?
Or did you guess another color?
I chose blue BUT . . . not that shade of blue. Although I really think that shade is lovely, unfortunately, it clashed with the bedding I've selected for the re-design so it had to go.
So we selected a shade of blue that is darker and here is the finished product. Notice that $1.50 lamp sitting on top! We're still not sure how we feel about the lamp shade, but it was only 50 cents so it won't be a big deal if we change it. I just liked that it added an element of texture to the room. Thoughts????
