Paint slinger

Or sprayer, in my case. This weekend I got fed up with a few items in my house. They just weren't cutting it anymore. So Aunt Abbie came and snagged Bean and gave me a couple hours to get some serious work done. My first project was my bedroom. I did this  in January.  I had gotten a Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic book for Christmas and I loved it!  So I was really diggin it for awhile, but I realized I'm not 100% shabby, so I needed a change for summer.  So I pulled out a comforter from last summer, hung new curtains, changed lampshades, new headboard, and a new chair at my vanity.  Enjoy!

Ethel Edith did a client staging of a photography studio and we did frames on the wall as art. I thought this would be a great way to add color to my hideous walls.  Oddly enough, I had ALL these frames in my closet.  With a few cans of spray paint I got busy.  Also, while painting in my yard a lovely bird decided one of my frames was a much better place to drop bombs than the large areas of grass around the frames.  My family got a chuckle out of it.  Even after a bird shat on my frames I still think they turned out great.

My bedding came from an outlet store, but it's actually Target.  Then i sewed a button on this plain green pillow and the striped green pillow is from IKEA.   My vanity was already the perfect blue so I stole a chair from Ethel Edith and that was that.  PERFECTION!

Also, here's my mercury glass canisters.  Annie got them for me for my birthday two years ago and I love them.  Thanks Sis!

Oh she also got me this little silver keeper topped with a pink gem.  I love it too!  Then my brush holder is from Big Lots $2!  I know I know, amazing! 

I love my new room and Kylie even loved it too.  Stay tuned tomorrow for my living room redo!
