Do you know what I am loving right now? Well, there are a few things! First up is acrylic paint. I have always loved it but recently I have been using it to paint everything. First the jar and flower pots and now a cute little tin and a clock.
This tin has been in the break room since I started here and I never really noticed it until now. It is so adorable with its cute swirly lines. I knew I had to paint it and make it even cuter.
It started out looking like this. Not bad but I knew it could be better!
Even the lid has a sweet scroll on it. Some paint in my favorite new pink color Peony and a little distressing gave a whole new look to it.
But of course I had to add some extra pretty things to it. A snippet of seam binding and a simple little shabby rose and I think this is the cutest tin! It matches my pen jar perfectly and I think I might use it to hold business cards or some other fun little things.
I needed a clock for my office and found one at Family Dollar that had a great look, just not a great color. Acrylic paint to the rescue! This is my other favorite color, Cloudless. A quick and imperfect couple coats of paint was all it took to turn this clock into something fun. I love the way acrylic paint allows you to add some character to your pieces. Now what else can I find around here to paint!?!
Speaking of things I love, I love shopping for linens when I am thrifting or yard saling. I recently found some darling sheets that I have used to dress up my day bed and bench out on the patio.
I love mixing the patterns up for that extra shabby look. Once the nice weather gets here, these will get lots of use on the weekends!
I also love to use sheets as tablecloths. This peachy rose sheet was perfect for our Easter brunch table. It is still on the table and makes the dining room look extra pretty. Sheets are so versatile and can be used for so many different things. And I am always on the look out for more!
Have a wonderful week and go paint something or put a sheet on it!
