Here's another project scratched off the punch list:
Spray paint sconces (probably red)
This was a simple project, but made such a difference. I had some green sconces that I'd originally purchased for my Audubon Bird Wall in my first-ever Colorado apartment (when I had just started blogging and trying my hand at decorating.)
I knew I wanted to reinstate the Bird Wall in the dining area of my new place. I had an entire wall that needed some love and I had decided against buying some new, huge (and likely expensive) artwork. I also needed a pop of red on that side of the room to balance out my red laquered IKEA LACK tables. Spray paint made it happen!
Here's what the sconces looked like before:
And voila! Jazzed up with Rustoleum spray paint in Apple Red:
Much better, don't you think? :)
I just love the starkness of the red with the black frames against white walls. It really just reboots the whole bird wall concept for me. :)
I have to say that getting a shot of this wall without getting crazy reflection off the windows was pretty tough. Having a lot of natural light is great, but it can sure play havoc with photography at times!
What do you think? Is the pop of red working for you? :)
