A couple of spray paint projects

I hope everyone is having a good week.
For me, the last two weeks have been extremely busy and with no sign of 
things slowing down any time soon.

Not only we have been preparing for our oldest son's arrival, but, at the same time, helping our youngest son get ready to finish his college finals and keeping up with the house and the numerous projects going on around here and at the same time, I have been getting ready for a trip overseas that I am getting ready to take here very soon.
WOW! I am exhausted! :)

Haven't had much time to keep up with my blog or visit all my favorite blogs, so, 
today, I am taking a little time to do so.

Some time, in the middle of the madness going on around here, 
my husband and I did a little spray paint project.
We have been wanting to give our son's room a new fresh look.
First, we went and bought him a new mattress set to replace his old one 
and after that, we gave his headboard a new look.
This is a piece that my husband built many years ago and it is solid wood.
We just can't bring ourselves to throw it out.

We used our favorite paint.

This is what it looked like before

And here is the before and after

I also bought him some new bedding and  here is how
it all looks together.
I really liked the colors and texture of this bedding

A new lampshade for the lamp on his night table

We also had this old lamp.
We sprayed painted it also with the ORB, turned the arms up and bought
new shades to give it a more updated look.

 Before and after.

Still working on drapes, dresser area and desk.
I will show you an update when it is all finished.

And now I am off to see what you guys have been up to lately.
Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Wow, these all look amazing!! ORB makes such a difference on things! It's my spray paint of choice!! Very clever to turn the arms up on the chandelier! That was a great idea!! Love it all!!
