So I might have something little that I haven’t been sharing with you… Dean and I are moving. Not far! But in just a short week and a half we will be renting a full house about 10 minutes east of where we currently live. It’s going to be a big money saver for us and a huge upgrade for Allegra (there’s a little backyard!) so we are really excited.
Of course this means that Dean and I have been quite busy packing things up, putting things together to be donated, and planning out some new projects to make our rented place feel like home. I can guarantee that starting next month you guys will be seeing a lot more crafts and DIY trials here in WLB, but while you wait I have a little update for you.
I bought these candle sticks at Target last fall for a measly $2.50 each.
See. I’m not a liar.
Anyway… they came in handy during the fall months and they matched my darker decor all throughout the winter. But now that it’s getting warmer out, I’ve found myself more drawn to a simple, white look. In fact, a lot of the things I’m buying or looking at for our new place are either plain white or a fun, bright print. These candle sticks were neither. Enter- my handy dandy spray paint.
These guys took quite a few coats, probably because I was towards the end of the can. No actual tutorial here, folks, because it was just as easy as it looks. I washed my candle sticks first to make sure that there was no dust or grime on them, and once they were fully dry I just gave them a few quick and even sprays with some spray paint.
I’m pretty excited about these guys because I’m thinking they should match my new office perfectly… and yes that is a hint of things to come.
