Small Fry(day) – Paint and a little creativity…
April 4th, 2014
I am sure you have heard of the amazing powers of a can of paint…but it really is true. One of the quickest and easiest ways to freshen up a room or a piece of furniture is with some paint.
I recently updated an old green chest with some fresh white paint and a can of hot pink spray paint to finish off a little corner of my baby’s nursery. And lo and behold…
So much better, right?!?! The chest itself got a coat of Sherwin Williams Pearly White. The hardware was in terrible shape. I tried to polish up the brass, but some pieces were beyond help. Enter the hot pink spray paint for a hit of color. Doing the hardware was not enough, so I thought I needed an additional detail on the drawer fronts to tie it all together. I was tossing around several design details in my head when I saw this detail on a chest in the latest House Beautiful magazine.
I knew that this was the shape I wanted. I created a template and taped it off and used my hot pink spray paint once again. I LOVE the way it turned out. An easy update to a boring old chest.
