Spray Paint Transformations: Magazine Holder

I found this little cutie @ GW {Goodwill} for $2.00!
I just couldn't pass her up --
I knew with a quick coat of spray paint she would be adorable!
A simple diamond in the ruff. :)

5 minutes later and she looked like this ...
{my FAVORITE kind of project!} 

and 20 minutes later she was already living in her new home!
in the little nook between my side of the bed and the awkward bathroom door.
The little book where there is no room for a nightstand.

So this is the perfect solution ---
It allows me to have all my favorite reads right there,
without having to hijack my husbands nightstand.
because I hate flipping through all the boring aviation magazines & history books to find my Southern Living!

Oh and do you want some spray painting tips?

Prime! Seriously, no matter what -- Prime!
Quality matters --- RustOleum is my absolute favorite!
(shy away from the .99 cans, they just don't cut it!)
Invest in one of these little "handle" things -- they are WONDERFUL!
{totally worth the $3, trust me!}

What have you spray painted lately????
I have been painting everything I can get my hands on!

  4. I love this. I have been reading your blog for some time now (visiting from www.stitchedsewsweetly.blogspot.com) and after reading so many of your spray painting adventures I bought my first item at the Goodwill yesterday to try. Thank you for all the inspiration!
