Isn’t it frustrating when you go to your local crafts/home decor store and you find something you like, but it’s the wrong finish or the wrong color, so you opt not to buy it???? Well, my friends not anymore! 2 things I am always stocked up on are primer spray cans and spray paint. DUH right!?!?
Lately, I have been getting a lot of inspiration from the French Provincial style and I found this really cute fleur-de-lis at my local Hobby Lobby marked down from $19.99 to $6.80…..SCORE! But the color was horrible and it had several scratches here and there, obviously from constant rejection and finally being throw into the clearance pile.
Please meet Exhibit A (ahem…..ignore the dirty garage floor)
Luckily I had my trusty Krylon multi-surface spray primer “in stock” so I couldn’t wait to get home and prime my little heart out! It works on EVERYTHING!
I wanted this to go on my dresser in the master bedroom. My bedroom set is an off white color so I looked around my Lowes and I found the perfect match! American Accents Heirloom White (I’m in love). I have used this on a couple of other things as you will get to see. You will also see that I have a fascination with the color white…. YES, I KNOW! I am a parent with a little one, but she will just have to learn not to put her dirty little fingers on mommy’s nice white furniture, and white towels, and white fabrics……. Baby-proofing is going to be a @#$%^&!
After letting it dry here is the finished product!
And here it is on my dresser. I must say, it helps keep my jewelry looking nice and not just thrown there when I get home from work.
I like how it just dresses up the corner of my dresser. So ladies, here is your take-away…. just because it is not the right color, doesn’t mean you can’t buy it!
