Cool DIY

Here is a DIY project I did in May.

A friend of mine gave me her old vanity. I wanted to paint it but wasn’t sure what I wanted. So many choices!! I ended up taking a paint chip sample, it was Ralph Lauren silver crackle type paint. Years later I decide its TIME to paint it. Home depot no longer carried the paint I wanted and was back to square one. I put it on the back burner until I went to home depot and happened to look at spray paints. They ended up having this silver spray paint with a hammered look finish. I had to try it. Here is the final product. Not the best before/after photos, I decided as I already disassembledthe mirror then decided I needed to take photos…oops

I was happy with the outcome.

– Side note when I was looking for paint I was thinking to myself how does home depot not have any crackle paint..then saw Martha Stewart paints and was like WTF how does she not have crackle paint..a month later Martha Stewart had crackle paint in Home Depot! haha now to a Martha Stewart DIY 🙂

I was watching Martha Stewart a while back and she made this really pretty window frame.

I said I was going to attempt to do it but  have no windows that could be decorated like this

Here is a neat way to display your items. A wine box, put some nice wrapping paper inside and wahlah..a cool shelf.

I found the wine box shelves  while searching for apple crates , good second option.

Here are some other ideas on how to use apple crates :
