Another Painting Project

I bought this rectangular metal container at TJ Maxx several years ago and never used it. It sat on top of a bookcase in my office/bonus room because the color didn't really go with anything. When I was  decrappifying my house this almost ended up in the garage sale room. Yes, I said room ... in the basement.

And then, I discovered black paint. I started painting a bunch of accessories around my house black. I was addicted!  And so, I thought, why not? Oh how I love black spray paint!
Hmmm, now what to do with it. At first, I used it to hold all of my pens, pencils, paint brushes and markers in my office.
And then I purchase some Peace Lilies at Lowe's and put the whole ensemble on the breakfast table.

Love it! Now, what's next???

What are you painting at your house???

Thanks for stopping by,

Pam

  3. That looks awesome!! At first I thought it was a big piece of furniture in the first picture so the pencil and things threw me for a loop! I have GOT to get me a can of black spray paint!

  9. Love that!! The candle holders I used this week were white when I got them, then I sprayed black then sponged on brown then a little gold. I love paint, but I also LOVE to strip paint off old furniture. Not sure what I like most!

  14. I love the container painted black and it's the perfect container for your beautiful lilies! Thankfully nothing is being painted at my house at the moment, but you just never know when the painting bug will bite!

  16. What a nice transformation. I love the look of painted tin ceiling tiles, and that is what the design reminds me of! Your lush house plants look so pretty against the black!
