Sometimes all you need is a little bit of paint to fix a problem. This gorgeous lantern makeover is a perfect example! MUST READ!
I always take before pics.
No… really! I honestly do. I’m actually very adamant about taking some sort of photo to ensure that I (you!) can see how much it has changed after I get my grubby little hands on it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a horrible shot with my cell phone, or when it’s hidden in a pile of trash. I just have to get that most-essential before pic.
However, I apparently did not with this project.
A Quick Lantern Makeover for Outdoor Living
Can you believe it? I was thumbing through my camera’s disc, and suddenly realized that I must not have taken pics.
Have you ever had that happen to you before? It’s the worse feeling isn’t it? I felt sick to my stomach, and immediately had a minor meltdown. As in… I wondered if I should break out the ol’ bottle of Grey Goose, and chug-a-lug a few shots to drown my sorrows in my disappointing mistake.
But then I remembered that ever since I turned 26 (quite a few moons ago…) my hangovers have turned into two days of pain and suffering, and quickly decided that a steaming cup of tea with some yummy local honey would do the trick. Ohhhhh how the times have changed 😉
Meanwhile, I was very thankful that everyone in my household was currently in bed at that very moment so the whole showing off my “true crazy” was avoided.
Nonetheless… I really wanted to show you how paint is definitely on my top 5 list of best friends. I just can’t get enough of it!
Ok, ok. That’s a lie. I really just wanted to show off a little bit of a teaser of my dresser makeover….!?!
That little beauty will be revealed tomorrow, and I’ll tell you what, it is beyond what I had originally planned.
It’s better! See you tomorrow 🙂
