My client wasn't looking the gold so we used the antique pewter color.

It's been a rough past year for my family, but with the new year, I decided to throw all caution to the wind, and just live life to the fullest! Starting with my home!
I love pink!
So I decided to re-do a few accessories and make them pop.
I love the look and feeling of these accents, so that's all that matters, right?!

I found some new shelf paper at my local $ store and spray painted the handles black, then sanded a little with steel wool, and look at the difference!
Finally accomplished one of my BIG projects!
maybe an embossed designed on front of drop down door, or make it a chalk board or ?? (tutorial later when I do)
I even made up my own blue/gray/lavender chalk paint from gray ooops paint!
Some more ooops paint in pinkish purple did the trick! (Made it chalk paint too)
1 cup paint (my own mix of oopps, satin finish)
2 Tbl white non sanded grout
little bit of water
(mixed the grout with water, then added to paint - had to add water if it got too thick as time progressed)
Brushed and used little rollers. 2 coats.
Then I decided to add some shelf paper I had on stock (originally bought at $1 store!)
This was the first run (Pink floral)
(my family said it looked old ladyish! )
Goes to show how easily it will be to change this out at my whim!
Also, can use wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, fabric!, or stenciling!
Did not prime any more of it, before using my own DIY chaulk paint.
But, hey for $20 this baby is gonna turn in to a Beauty!
