Old sconces, until now....
I've had these sconces since the day I moved into my house. They used to go very well with the brown walls....until now. They are very dark, almost rod iron and very heavy. After we lightened up the family room, we realized that these really didn't go very well with our beachy decor. Then last night, I decided to change them up! Just a little spray paint......that's all you need :)
Here is my "during" photo:
And after 3 quick coats (in under an hour)....here is the after!
I started this blog so that my friends and family around the country (and Canada) could see the projects we are working on and ones we have completed. Sending emails with before and after picture attachments was getting old!
My Aunt always told me to take pictures of crafts I've completed because when you give them away, you forget all the hard work you put into the finished product....so this is for you Auntie. Everything from house renovations, sewing, recipes and paintings will be posted. I hope y'all enjoy!!
