There is hardly a more transforming, affordable, game changer substance available than paint.
But…every once and a while you need a little somthin’ extra.
A little oomph.
I knew they would be perfect for Spring.
When they came out of hiding last week they begged for a makeover that was simple, fun and blended with our Easter/Spring color pallet. I have loosely built our Spring décor around my kid’s Easter baskets. White, light wood, soft denim, pink, green and blues…all softer than I usually go. In order to make these dated tulips work seamlessly into place I started with a clean white coat of homemade chalk paint.
My favorite part is the touch of chambray fabric.
Then ironed the strips and used fabric modge podge to adhere the fabric to the candlestick.
I needed a break from just paint. This idea is simple but easy to translate to other projects you may be working on.
Paint doesn’t always need to be the teacher’s pet. 😉
I can’t wait to show you how this fresh new project works into my Spring mantel!
Next week I’m kicking off a Magnolia Market (aka Fixer Upper, Joanna Gaine’s store) series that I’m so excited about and hope you will be too!
