Light and Bright is the theme of my Family Room Redo...
Yes... after almost nine years, the most lived in room in the house is getting redecorated.We have ordered new furniture and it will be here in a few weeks.
So the first thing I am doing is refreshing a few accessories to use in the new brighter look.
The bigger was chocolate brown and the smaller was a dark gold.
Here you can see it when it was still wet... but it will dry a more chalk-looking finish.
and simply watered it down a bit
so it would be lighter and more like a milk paint finish.
I may sand them later when I refinish other things.
But for now, I am happy with how they turned out.
I added the wooden tag, metal circle trinket and the burlap ribbon.
This makes the cheap vanilla candle look more finished.
burlap and some floral leftovers.
I am going pretty neutral, but this dresses it up.
These are all things from around the house... and my stash of craft supplies.
I love the updated look and how easily I can change it for the seasons.
Nothing is glued on, just tied with sting...
and it only cost me my time and a bottle of craft paint!
Beautiful doesn't mean expensive!
Have a great day.....Brooke
