A Little Update: Bedroom

Over the last few months I have been redecorating my room. The silver/grey walls have been covered with a crisp clean white paint and my dark bedding is now white too.  If possible I like to reuse things when I redecorate and that is where spray paint comes in handy!! A little paint can completely transform something to fit into your new d├ęcor.

The gold dipped trend inspired my first spray paint project.   I took inspiration from the pictures above and decided to paint my desk. After lightly sanding my desk, I sprayed three coats of light pink spray paint. I waited 48 hours before taping off the legs and spraying the bottom gold.  Once it had completely dried, I used a wax sealer and then let it set for a few days.  I'm still searching for the perfect handles!

My second project was a little simpler.  Five or six thin coats of black spray paint completely changed the look of my bedside lamps.  Once the paint was dry I added some trim to the lampshades to complete the look.  I don't keep the lamps on for extended periods of time, so a glue gun was sufficient to use to attach the ribbon.  If I used the lamps more, I would be afraid the hot glue would melt.
