Ok, like a year ago… I got this little shelf at a garage sale. It was one of those sales that’s in a warehouse and you pay $5 bucks at the door for a garbage bag, and you can fill it with whatever you want! All for $5! Silly me wasted a ton of room in my bag for this unfortunate little homely shelfy-hook thing.
I came home, painted it white, and it hung in a closet holding the girls’ bathing items. Until now!
So ya know how we have this bench with hooks above it for our coats/hats and whatnot in our kitchen, no?
Well I decided the girls needed their own shorter hooks so they can reach… once they start walking. Also, because it’s just plain cute. I had Nick put it up right below our dry erase calendar and ‘bill’ board.
Last weekend, while garage-saling with my girl Nicole, I picked up this little frame and angry porcelain owl for less than a dollar. I knew a fresh coat of glossy paint would bring them both back to life! I primed them both first using Kilz spray.
And since I wanted my frame to be white anyway, I sprayed on a glossy coat of Krylon white! But I had different plans for my owl friend. I wanted him to be bright and cheerful! And since we already have PLENTY orange accents in the kitchen, I went with Krylon Ivy Leaf!
I popped in a photo of the girls taken by Molly Long Photography… and placed them on our new little shelf! I think it’s super cute. And a great place to throw our keys when we walk in the door!
Wanna know a secret? These shoes are totally staged. They would never look like this all lined up and cute. Never.
So there ya have a quick little tweak to our home, complements of garage sales… and a little spray paint!
