Tuesday Painting

J and Gus and I had a lovely little holiday up in Thompson, I can't believe my sweetie turned 35!!  I can still remember seeing him in the hallway in high school for the first time at 15 years old...

Today is all about hanging out at home, puttering away at cleaning and projects.  I finally picked up some spray paint for those brass candlesticks I got at the Salvation Army.

I hit up Canadian Tire to check out my spray paint options and was delighted to find this amazing turquoise blue called Bahama Sea by Krylon.  I know I was gushing about Rustoleum last week but Krylon just seems to have nicer colours!

So I spent the afternoon doing some spraypainting and transforming the candlesticks and the polka dot bench (pics of that to come later!).

I'm absolutely loving how easy it was to take them from brassy to modern!  They look especially great in our living room next to my good friend B's lovely artwork.

Isn't it so nice to work on a project that only takes a day?  It's such instant gratification!
