Refreshed In White

A couple of items got a refresh with a coat of Rustoleum’s Heirloom White spray paint last week.  Neither of them warrant a post on their own so I’ve combined them together here.  First up is this little holder that I keep on my home office desk to hold paperclips. 


I’ve been wanting to spray paint this white for years and finally got it done.  I tend to hold off on spray painting items until I’ve got a couple to knock out.


Looks like a brand new piece and I like it much better in white. 


I also painted this small gold urn.


I’d had this in my booth and it came home with me when I closed the end of April. 


I think this will make it easier to move around into different rooms and vignettes in my home.


Sometimes a simple refresh with some white paint is enough to make me feel like I’ve got a “new” look without spending any money!

Don’t forget to enter my Bowdabra giveaway here! Ends May 31st!

Amazing how things look so much nicer once they've been painted! Love that little holder you're using for paper clips!

Oh wow, both look wonderful. I love those little cherubs, and the urn is the perfect size.

I love everything, Kathy, especially the urn. I think we in the colder climates get that bug to spray paint this time of year (unless we have a place to do it that's safe in the winter). I have a few painting projects here and at the lake and boy, I'm ready!!

Thanks for stopping. I didn't want to offend anyone with the cat issues, I really think any animal lover is a friend of mine. And kittens...sigh! I just associate them with misery and I experienced my daughter having an asthma attack when she was 4 years old just from holding one for 5 minutes. No tolerance for that anymore.

Hope to get by more often soon, my friend!

Very pretty updates, Kathy. I love the moss ball, too.

Hi Kathy, The paper clip holder looks amazing on your desk painted white. I have the same urn too and also painted it. Mine is holding a bird's nest at the moment.
I tend to wait and spray paint when I have several items to do also.
Great updates!

I like to use spray paint to freshen things up. For my daughter's furniture makeover, we are spray painting the wooden drawer knobs metallic chrome. Fun!

Great job! I have several things in my closet that need the same treatment.
