There's elephant in the room

Friends, do I have a treat for you today?! I am so excited for you to meet sweet Em! She and I share a special love for the city ((different cities)) and church planting, among other things. Em also has a great eye for design, along with a love for finding the frugal way to do things. I hope you enjoy her project an go read her blog!

Hi! I'm Emily and am a happy guest of Beth's today. I blog at {our nest in the city} and you can follow my tweets here.

Now, lets see what we can do in 10 minutes to spruce up our home decor, shall we?
I love changing up the decor in my house and get bored of spaces so quickly, but I'm also on a tight budget. 
 One way I love to add a touch of fun to a space is spray-painted figurines. You can pick any colour and the finish of spray paint is already glossy, so no need for a clear top coat!

I found this elephant for $1.25 at the Salvation Army and knew immediately he would hang out on my bedside table/mom cave. Trouble was he had some unfotunate metallic markings and wasn't in the best shape. 

 

A few sprays of white spray paint later, he was looking fab! 


What's your favourite thing to spray paint?
Ceramic animals are mine!

  2. Love it, I also happen to love elephants (I even spray painted one and made a planter out of it once). I'm your newest follower by the way :)
