From drab to fab! {a fun project}

 Caleb saw a really cool color of spray paint while we were out last weekend and told me we should get it...I say, sure why not?! We had no idea what we were going to do that evening and we quickly decided it should be a DIY night-in! So, we bought ourselves some canvas' and paint, then stopped by a cute consignment shop and Caleb found a really neat mirror (he's got a good eye!)...there was no price tag on it and I assumed it would be nearly $50. Turns out, it was $17. You bet we snagged that beauty up and decided THAT'S what we would use the spray paint for. So we made a quick trip to Michael's for painters tape, etc...and had ourselves a ball all evening.

We obviously didn't want to get spray paint on the mirror, so we had to get the tape up underneath the framing, and cover the entire mirror. Luckily, that didn't take too long and we were able to put a few coats on within an hour.


It turned out so, so amazing. We're really excited about it. Ignore the awful two toned lighting that came through on my camera -- but the mirror is awesome, huge, and we LOVE the color!

By the time we got this finished, it was pretty late...so we know we're looking a bit rough, but we couldn't help but snag a mirror picture ;) #cliche

We really want to try and make this tiny space of ours FEEL like home in the next coming months, and I'm excited for the challenge. Have you ever done a DIY that was surprisingly simple? I'd love to hear about it!!
