I recently scored some free paint from Valspar and Glidden via their FB pages. This started my new obsession with turquoise colors as I told you about here. I have been painting pretty much everything over the past few months that I could get my paint brush on. The Glidden paint color I chose was called 'Soft Sapphire', and eggshell type interior paint. I received a full gallon of paint via FedEx. I will tell you about the Glidden projects in an upcoming post.
The Valspar kit arrived complete with paint roller brush, sample and paint holders. The paint color I chose was called 'Beach Sparkle'. Isn't that a perfect name?
I started by painting a picture frame that used to be purple. Now it looks a lot more beachy!
Next I tackled this lovely heart shaped mirror that I got at a flea market in Germany. The frame was originally gold with green and pink leaves. I like this color better.
This mirror used to be brown and boring. It is really heavy and I can only lean it against the wall. I was going to adorn it with sea shells, but then I propably couldn't lift it anymore. It is actually army issue-I got it about 20 years ago when a local army base closed down and threw out a bunch of furniture.
Now it looks fresh and new and I placed silver shells in each corner to give it a pop. I'm glad I like the mirrow now since I'm kind of attached to it.
Not a bad start into my painting adventures. I have said it before and I will say it again-the power of paint can transform most anything from drab to fab. It is simple and easy to do.
