Styling Something Simple

I was reading through my google reader this morning and came across a post on the website BeforeAfter that has me intrigued!

The website posts daily before-after pictures that are emailed in from a collection of different people. It’s rather inspiring for people like myself that don’t want to pay high-dollar for good looking items, but instead find something that could look good and give it a lovely makeover.

This was today’s inspiring post that any and everyone that lives in the south could probably appreciate.

Take that not-so-lovely fan you have sitting in several rooms:

.

.

and give it a Pottery Barn makeover with a simple can of spray paint and not spending a crazy high $$ price tag $$ .

.

It looks decorative AND has the bonus of  actually being useful!!

I am constantly amazed at the things people transform with a simple can of paint.

I think it’s time I purchased some and got to spraying!!

    a wise man once said ‘a simple can of paint could initiate the undoing of a nation, and a gallon could destroy the world’

    you’d think they would just sell it in that color!

  3. I have a firepit that you can come pick up and have, it does not need painting, it just needs a loving home. And your backyard is now ready for a hotdog or marshmellow roast (smores-mmmmmm).
