painted accents

I was tired of some of my accent pieces. I still loved something about each piece BUT wanted to refresh them.

spray painted and then hand painted for a unique finish and texture

painted turquoise and then distressed and the side plaques are lightly brushed over with yellow ASCP in Arles

turquoise with sea blue and antiques (was a trio of mirrors that were gold, I removed the mirrors)

hand painted yellow ASCP in Arles and aged with some stain rubbed on and off (was a putty stone colored resin wall plaque)

turquoise and distressed (were black and brown)


  1. OOOOOO wow I simply LOVE everything and super love the stars!!! AWEASOME JOB!

  2. Those turned out great! I want to do that with some of my accessories! I would love for you to share this at my new linky party "Pin It and Win It Wednesday" @!

  3. I love your thriftiness! Way to repurpose old decor that just needs a facelift. I love the idea. Saves me a trip to Goodwill, if I'd just "shop" around my own house.

    1. I do it all the time! i set up a place in my basment with my own stuff like a thift I can "shop" my own stuff.

  4. They all look wonderful, what a thrifty lift!

  5. These look so great, makes me think about re-doing some things in my house:)
