Suddenly it is such a beautiful spring weather here, sunshine, flowers, kids playing in the garden without their hats on, windows left open, clothes hung out to dry…
Suddenly I feel the inspiration and the need to create… to do something around the house, to clean up very nice, to dress up the rooms… It has been a long winter, and I have realised, that my craftiness was limited to sewing warm clothes and crocheting heavy blankets during these months. Now it is time to return to home decorating.
I have a lot of thing up my sleeves these days, but today I managed to take some time to spraypaint and paint a few things that have been waiting for a redo since last summer… shame on me 🙂
First of all I took some of the mason jars I am using to keep different things in them around the house.
Then I took the cute little shelf I found last August in a local charity shop and bought it literally for a few pennies. Poor thing was a little dusty, shabby and miscoloured. All it needed was some dusting, cleaning, sandpapering, a few layers of painting and some love 🙂
So I took my tools, and went into war.
I gave the jars a few layer of spraypaint and they got a lovely metallic silver colour. They look very cool on my kitchen counter, holding some pencils and straws.
Or in my office, trying to organise my crochet hook among others…
And here is a reborn shelf, in the colour of turquoise, enjoying a sunbath, drying.
It is going to bring a nice pop of colour to my office, which is due to a major redo very soon!
