My latest escapades with white spray paint

     White spray paint. Besides food and fabric, I do believe it is the most purchased item in this household. I love white, and I love spray paint. What a lovely combination. If you've been reading this blog for any time, you've seen me  post about my wall of white. My only criteria for things to hang on it, is that it be something that captures my imagination, and it's pretty to look at. Enter my latest thrift store finds...
      These three little mirrors had lovely frames that were just begging to be freed from that awful gold finish. I used white spray paint, and black glaze to achieve this particular finish.

       Next up, I found this completely awesome ship wall hanging, which also received a nice coat of white paint. It makes me think of books I love, like Treasure Island and Moby Dick. It does have a few broken spots, but I don't mind them. It makes it seem more like a real ship that's been beaten by a storm or something.

       I repainted a clock I had with a deer head (gotta include something manli-ish for the mister's sake!), and spray painted a few other little things to add to my collection.

        Here it is all hung up with my previous collection.

         I really do love my little wall. Its very eclectic, but I still feel it works together nicely.

       I'm not sure what I'll do when my wall gets too full to add more...spread to the roof maybe? Ha! Kidding! What's your favorite little spot to look at in your house?

  1. Honestly, there is nothing that white (spray) paint can't fix! I love the boat, my husband is a want-to-be-sailor, so I have a fondness for maritime decor:)


  2. Love it!!! The ship is my favorite.

  3. The wall is full of precious and love!

  4. The white paint just unifies everything beautifully. The collection is very interesting to look at and ,really, isn't that what we want the decor on our walls to be? I saw your post on Boogieboard Cottage.

  5. That looks very pretty - I really like the white!
    I would love if you came by to link up to my party happening now! I would love to have you there!
