An urn, some Frog tape and couple cans of spray paint

Welp... I'm at it again.

My mom always says "Don't blink in Kristy's house!"  because I am notoriously always changing things...  rearrange it, paint it, hang it, take it down, paint it again.. you ALL know what I'm talking about.  It's just my thang.


As most of  you know, we moved into our new house in February and I've piddled and tweaked and fiddled and faddled and it's all slowly coming together.... but I've never been quite settled with the tv wall.  The dreaded tv wall that is THE focal wall.  ugh.

I'll show you where I started and kind of talk you thru what's changed (mayyyybe even 2-3 times since February... maybe) 

*but first.  my photos are crappy. i'm sorry.  blogging about this was kind of an after thought and i was too far into my thought process to go get the good camera.  sorry.*

So you know, the iron shelves were once black.  Now, they're gold.
The urns/planters were once a cool distressed concrete, then green, then hot pink, then (photoed) white.  I've painted them.  Again.

Matte black

I used my trusty Frog tape and taped off the rim around the top.  I wanted to have the black and white contrast and have them play off the chevron urns on the mantel. 

Buuuuuut they weren't quite "finished".


I got out my Rub N Buff

Yep.  That's just what it needed!

whoops.  this pict is lop-sided.  how do I fix that here?!

oh well. 
Here's the "bigger picture"  :)

YEP!  I like it waaayyy better!  


About that orange iron piece....

Please tell me we're all alike and slightly obsess over our schtuff...



((By the way... I am still hittin up the ol' Home Goods/Marshalls/TJMaxx weekly for a matching black/white lamp shade to match the one on the right!  Let me know if you come across one, will ya?!))

And hey.  Since you're lookin... leave me a little love why don'cha?!  At least then I'll know you were here! ;)  THANKS A TON, HON!
