Almost 11 years ago, soon after we became engaged, my now-husband and I decided to get an apartment together. As a house-warming gift, my parents gave us a bronzey-black metal clock that has hung, ever since, in our successive kitchens (we are on our fourth kitchen now!).
Of course, it has sentimental value, so I'll probably never get rid of it. However, it really needed an updating- you know, to bring it into this decade!!
So what did I do? I hit it with spray paint!!! Vintage White to be exact.
But even once the paint had dried, it didn't look done. Maybe it's too white???
So I did what any crafty girl would do ----I added some red buttons.
Yep. Those buttons give it a ZING of colour!!
After I re-hung it on the wall, I decided the whole area needed a mini-makeover.
How about some springy yellow tulips??
My jar of flour has been here awhile, but it's a little too white. On went a red bow and a button accent:
And my thrifted teapot. I adore those colourful hearts. My youngest son calls it my "Love Pot."
And all on a white tray, covered by a fresh blue tea towel.
There- a makeover on many levels.
