Craft Monday: Color Upgrade

The furniture in our house seems to all be darker wood. While I don't mind this, it has started to get to me. So, I decided to start painting things in my house.

Starting with the shelf that holds the dvd player and u-verse box for the tv in our bedroom.

We recently painted our room with an accent wall of red, so I thought it would be fun to paint the shelf red to coordinate with the wall. And as I have said before, I am now in love with spray paint. This can cost me $1.15 and is on its third project!

The shelf had a finish to it, so I took hubs sander and gave it a light sand.

Then I brought it up to hip level (thanks to the awesome gift I gave him last Christmas of saw horses) and spray painted both sides.

After it was dry, I placed it back on the wall, all by myself!

This was a super simple and cheap way to give more character to our bedroom! I am still looking for some shelves I like to paint red and place on a different wall.
I am sharing this simple idea on ALL of these Link Parties! Check them out!

It has been quite awhile since I have had a chance to blog...or make anything. And I miss it.

However, I am loving life!

I have the most encouraging and hunky husband.

I love grad school...being challenged in so many ways.

And God has great things in store for us at The Bridge, and I am honored to be a part of it.

So although I have been missing from the blog world, I have not been missing out on living life to the fullest!

Hoping to make something in the near future to share with you all!
