Flea Market Candlesticks

Remember when I said I was horny on the Internet? Turns out, spray paint is the cure. These flea market candlesticks went from black to glossy white and currently reside in the office until I can find a more suitable spot for them.

To be honest, I kind of miss them black. Luckily, it’s only paint and I can switch up the color of these babies as often as I want. I’ll keep them as is for a bit, but if they still don’t grow on me, I’ll have to test out another color. What do you think?

Did I catch your attention? Good. Now back to my boring home decor post, which has nothing to do with sex. I snatched these horn candlesticks at the flea market for $10. They’re replicas of much more expensive versions I’ve seen online. I’m going to spray paint them since the black isn’t really doing it for me. Should I go with a glossy white or a brassy gold? Tell me what to do.

We had an exhausting weekend filled with endless driving, relocating furniture, painting and other body-breaking work. The man cave is still in the works, but it looks like a completely new space after just 48 hours. I’ll post progress photos soon. Happy Monday cheries!

Spray Me

I was bored last night so I searched the house for objects I could spray paint. I found this ceramic owl candleholder on my bookshelf and went to work on it.

Then I brought him downstairs and placed him next to my other Halloween paraphernalia. He’s spooky when he’s not surrounded by books.

Spray painting is addicting.

Under 18 Not Allowed

It’s always a nice boost to your self esteem when your husband has to buy the spray paint because you don’t have the identification to prove you’re over 18. Home Depot really takes the war on drugs and graffiti seriously. After three trips, we were finally able to complete the mirror project.

Here’s a shot of the mirror pre-paint job. Extremely ominous right?

The first order of business was taping the mirror so I wouldn’t have to scrape any paint off later. Unlike my usually hasty self, I took my time and made sure every centimeter was covered.

And then onto the sanding. The lovely Husband decided it was in his best interest to stop watching and start helping at this point.

Three coats and 24 hours later, the final product. I can finally breathe easy.

There’s still much left to do in the dining room like hang the mirror and get a new rug, but I’m another step closer so I’m happy. And this particular project only cost about $15 dollars so the Husband is happy too.

Lady of the House

Between consuming copious amounts of alcohol and eating “American” this Labor Day weekend, I failed to complete my mirror project. But I did buy the spray paint so I guess that’s a good start no?

I also picked up a few decorative items while the Husband was home studying on Monday. My favorite find…this ram head from Z Gallerie on sale for $18! I call him Lady Antebellum. I couldn’t be more proud of a sale item than if I’d birthed him from my own womb.
