Home Decor Project for the Amateur

Today, I decided that I wanted to work on some home decor projects that have been on my to-do list for almost a year now. Now, I’m new at doing projects that include a visit to Home Depot or Lowe’s – even the simplest ones. Just last year, I painted a wall for the first time ever. It turned out…like how a first time painting job normally turns out.

Today, I tried my hand at spray painting. Surprisingly it was simple enough other than the fact that the wind can be erratic. So not long ago I purchased this Lazy Susan organization piece that holds all my cards, pens and other utensils. I thought it was perfect when I bought it except the color was way off. I planned to spray paint it several months ago but never got around to it until today.

Since I was already spray painting, I figured I would spray another piece in my room. So I’m in love with flowers and I adore using them as decoration. Years ago I painted a Ciroc bottle white and did that trendy marbling that was going around at the time. This created a vase for my cute little teenage room. Now that I’m an adult I spray painted it silver to match my more “grown up” taste.

My setup for spraying was pretty amateur hour, but that’s to be expected since I am an amateur at this home decor stuff. I think next time I will use a cloth tarp (or sheet) so that my decor items don’t stick to the plastic tarp.

All in all this project was lots of fun and I would most definitely do this again to other pieces – maybe some furniture that I don’t like the color of. I hope this was a good read and a change from my normal beauty posts. Thanks for reading.
