Lately B and I have found ourselves on a mission. A mission to complete this house that we live in. Since I got all emotional in a post about not moving to Austin last week, B and I have decided to do all these projects on our sweet little home, that we were otherwise just going to forget about.
Among the massive projects include a backsplash, a porch, and the mack daddy of them all, another bathroom. Yes, our poor house only has one bathroom. And I hate that pretty much every day I live here. Although we’re still conflicted on where to put said bathroom, but that is a post for much much later down the road.
You know, when we’re rich.
But, to keep it on the cheap, I wanted a new lamp for our bedside table. I’ve had the same one for quite some time now, and I was ready for a change. And some color. So this past weekend, bestie L came up for the weekend, and we hit Homegoods. And there I saw it…the perfect lamp! Except, well, it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind….
This is what the lamp looked like before. Yes, on top of our trash can.
is after a bright shiny coat of key lime green spray paint. It’s my little artichoke.
And I love him.
Plus he looks fantastic with the key lime pillows in our bedroom. I so love a good can of spray paint. It can turn a blah, 50’s style lamp into something completely modern.
So proud of it.
We also have a fun bathroom mirror facelift coming up this weekend…can’t wait to share!
