What is it with all the random things that keep showing up on this blog?
Random things that used to be outside and then showed up inside because they were (a) free and (b) didn’t cost anything and (c) no charge and (d) priced right.
It’s like enough already.
First there was the stable door from an abandoned barn that arrived in the family room and turned into the back drop for a fall mantel.
It’s hard to pass up a free stable door.
Then there was a window.
A window left and abandoned by the side of the road.
The window that morphed into the most wonderful wall chalkboard calendar.
And now we have the rusty garden gate.
Perfect future project for the farmhouse.
Do you see what I mean?
Do you notice a pattern?
Are you so over it?
Please tell me you aren’t.
Because I think this is going to be my favorite outside-turned-inside-turned-fall-decorating-turned-junk-that-was-going-to-be-thrown-away-turned-amazing.
And I can’t wait for you to see it.
When I’m finished.
In October 🙂
I did get started on the project, though….just the other day.
Can you see the difference?
Scroll back up to see the before.
So subtle….but so wonderful.
I love the rust….but I had to knock it down a little.
And I did it with the help of this:
Krylon Rust Protector Spray Paint
Okay….total aside here….is that not the prettiest picture of a can of spray paint you have ever seen? Seriously. The bricks in the background. The leaves softly falling from the sky…..floating and landing…..just so….on the hay bale where the spray paint just happens to be. All that can needs now is a Badgley Mishka evening dress, Jimmy Choos and a Judith Leiber clutch to be ready for the spray paint red carpet.
But the best thing about Krylon Rust Protector Spray Paint is not just that is looks incredible wearing a designer dress and Jimmy Choos…….
……it’s that it completely transformed my garden gate.
And I’m just getting started 🙂
Now…..how about you?
Do you have a great spray paint project? Want to show it off?
This is your projects’ time to shine.
And I can’t wait to see what you link up.
