In our bedroom we have this armoire and two nightstands. My parents got them for us as a gift and they work great in the space. I haven’t been real thrilled with the knobs though so I decided to spray paint them, what a difference it made!!! They were’t bad before but I like them better with more contrast.
When I took the knobs off they were in two pieces, no big deal though!
I left the screws in so we could open and close the drawers for a couple days without the hardware.
I used oil rubbed bronze spray paint from Meijers and primer (which I also used on my lamps) from Home Depot.
One coat of primer…
Two coats of paint! Easy peasy!
I like the darker look but could really do any color. Bright green? Gold? This is how you can create custom touches for little moola!
I hope you guys have a great weekend. Hubby is at school so I will be making the boys and I busy with projects, a birthday party, and hot yoga for me!
Make your home look well cared for and the people who enter it will feel well cared for. Breath some life into your house by incorporating these simple changes!
1. Add some plants or flowers
Nearly EVERY picture I like of a dining table, coffee table, bedside table or hall console has flowers in it! Are we on to something here? Of course I love live flowers and plants but if you can’t keep them alive go for a really good fake or dried plant. Instant decor uplift.
2. Pull furniture away from the wall
Keep your living room from looking like a dormitory and float furniture away from the wall! If you don’t have room to pull everything away, pick a few pieces. It makes a room feel more cozy and conversation more intimate!
3. Go for a larger rug size
Rugs that are to small look like an island in the middle of the room, and are just plain silly! So instead of doing this….
Do this! Tuck rugs underneath furniture to help “pull the room together”. If you don’t have a larger rug on hand, layer smaller rugs on top of one another. Layering rugs is so in right now!
4. Put fruit in a bowl
First of all it’s super cheap and usually around the house. When you need a quick color splash fruit is an easy way to go. Plus it exudes “I’m healthy and active!” What isn’t inviting about that?
When in doubt, take it out. You will have room for more important things like thinking clearly and visiting with friends.
