Moving toward a more "Neutral Shabby Palatte"


After all the Christmas decorations got put away, I wanted to freshen up the look in my house.  I am moving to a more neutral shabby look and have been painting up a storm.  I found this piece above at a yard sale for $1.00 and it was gold so I painted it white and distressed it a bit.  I love how it turned out!  
I love white pitchers, so they are back on my mantel, and in some of my book shelves by the fireplace.  


this was fun to spray paint, because when the white paint hit it, this color started to bleed through and running down, to make a really fascinating affect.   See below the finished product.  It is fun to see what the spray paint will do on different finishes.  


I have been collecting all the small frames around here and painting them too.  Spray painting and just painting with acrylic paint.  I do like the silver frames though with the white so won't be painting them.  I will post my gallery wall with all the new frames in the next post.

I love your new decorating palette, Michelle! Isn't it fun to taking something we wouldn't ordinarily use for decor and transform it into a "Wow!" ? Can't wait to see your picture gallery!

Really pretty! Great ideas. Isn't it fun to look with the eye to repurpose? Your angel piece turned out great.

I love your new calm decorating theme. After the hectic holidays we all need a calming atmosphere.
