Moving on, I've been working my way up to work on a big project. For some reason, I am really scared of painting my furniture. I'm afraid I'll mess it up BADLY. I have a really dark bookcase in the entrance of my house that I am dying to brighten up. I bought a few paint samples last week and what was the first thing I painted? My shoes! That same day, I asked my hubby to paint this sign too.
I know it's not a piece of furniture. Baby steps, baby steps. He spraypainted it the same color as my flats.
I went to WalMart this morning to get groceries and happened to remember to get this.
When I got home (after I put away the groceries), I started to distress my PRAY sign. I had no idea what I was doing. I just sort of scrubbed all the edges and lightly passed over the surfaces. This is what I ended up with.
And then I placed it on it's new home next to this cute pillow.
While at the grocery store, I also took Laura's advice and bought myself a $5 bouquet of roses. I love how they look in mason jars. Ofcourse, I'm not quite as good at photographing them as she is!
So do I pass the test?? Am I ready to take on this bookcase?
I'm still a little scared! But I will do it eventually, once I settle on just the right color. I also have to keep in mind that I'm repainting my walls soon so I have to coordinate this with another color. I think I decided on slate-colored walls?? I guess the question marks don't really make me sound too sure. We'll see! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy it with your families!
