How about a little spring green to chase those winter blues away? After the holidays it's easy to feel a little blue. The parties and excitement of the holidays are over and the winter seems to stretch on. Here are two quick makeovers that are sure to have you singing for spring.
The first, is a little side table that I picked up at the thrift store. My initial thought was to paint the body white and re-stain the top. However, the little side table had other plans.
It insisted on being painted a fun color, like apple green. The color is so cheery and fun, that I couldn't bare to part with it. Little Green now resides in my son's room.
The second green makeover is of a little lamp that lost its way.
The silver lamp I already had and the shade I picked up from the thrift store for 49 cents. The girl who checked me out put it in a bag with a sharp metal cross, that ended up slicing a large hole in it by the time I got home. (I took a picture of its "good" side.)
My original thought was to paint a design on the shade, but with the rip, ended up covering it instead. A quick coat of spray paint for the base and this little lamp is lost no more.
This is the first chevron piece I made that I decided to keep for my own home. Every time I see the green, it makes me smile. :-)
So, tell me, which colors lighten your spirit and brighten your day?
