A few of my finds redone. . .

I am working on redoing my spare bedroom. Actually, working on making it a bedroom again instead of a junk craft room. I have put the bed back in and am slowly adding to it.

Find #1
I found this white metal lamp at a local thrift store for $5.00. It is very heavy and I loved the curvy base. I spray painted it "Ivy Leaf" by Krylon and this is what I ended up with. I love it and it matches the bedding in the room perfectly.

Find #2 and #3
Find #2 was actually a find in my own yard. I have lots of these plastic terra cotta colored pots. Some have things planted in them and some, well some are home to some very lucky spiders. I bought an asparagus fern (one of my favorite types of ferns) and needed a pot to put it in. I decided to try spray painting the pot with "Ocean Breeze" by Krylon. I love it and it turned out great. The bright green fern looks so good in the blue pot. Find #3 is a black wrought iron plant stand that I bought for $5.00 at the flea market. It was pretty rusty and needed a good coating of paint. Again, I used Krylon spray paint in a black gloss. It turned out really pretty. It got dark before I could get a really good after picture.

Here's a picture of the plant stand before:

I am having the best time finding things and redoing them. And I am falling in love with spray paint!

I have wondered before if spray paint would work on those plastic pots. Thanks for showing that it does! And the lamp and plant stand both look gorgeous.
