I'm not quite ready for yellow kitchen cabinets, but his little book stand was the perfect candidate for a little dose of yellow. And spray paint made this a quick and easy transformation. Like most projects, it started out basic brown.
And then it was time for paint.
After two coats of Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch spray in glossy warm yellow, I mixed a little white paint into clear glaze. I brushed it on with a sponge brush and rubbed with a cloth. The result was a smooth finish with a nice soft look.
I think my books will be much happier resting here now!
And while I had the spray paint out, I decided to brighten up this sweet little plant stand. It was a boring shade of tan.
I love the little scalloped edges.
Much cuter, don't you think?
And because I just couldn't stop, a pair of wooden candlesticks went from brown to yellow in a matter of minutes.
Yes, much better!
