:: Spreading Cheer one Paint Project at a Time! ::

After painting my bedside table  with sample paint I purchased from Lowes ...and it matched my quilt so well... 



I decided to use some of the FREE sample paints I sometimes get from ACE Hardware...
 
I still had some 'lewisporte' left from this project.

It looked like it would go with the quilt too... 
I spread a little of it around in the bedroom. 

That remote on the shelf is for the A/C. I could have put it behind the 'believe' plaque for the glamour shot; but no. 
...don't you just love modern conveniences?  


No need walking 9 feet  to turn the A/C off... When you can walk 12 ft. and turn it off at the door like a light switch. 
We can't even reach that remote from the bed w/o getting up!  Hardly worth buying batteries for it. LOL... 



This is my before picture... the shelf and mirror are black. In case you were wondering... :)



That's it...little projects I do when the mood strikes ...and there is a spare minute in my day, to spread a little cheer or a little paint!

Don't you just love doing little projects...that cost nothing?  
Not a lot of effort...but it makes me smile to see small little changes! :) 
Have a wonderful and creative week. 

**ACE Hardware gives this paint away for free occasionally. 
and I give my opinion away for free ALL THE TIME!

Love that unexpected pop of orange on the bedside table. Don't know if I could use that color anywhere, but it is pretty.
Hugs,

I love sample paints - they are perfect for small jobs like these. Love your tweaks, my friend. We have one of those remotes, too. Very handy!

Looks great Pat! I am itching to do some decorating. If I can just get things done up here so I can. Did you figure out all the problems with your blog. I immediately changed mine to have to click to read on...not that I make any money, but am so interested in growing my blog and possibly making some. Have a great week and wonderful decorating blessings to you!

Diane said...

Nice change! My kind of project. I never heard of an AC remote. Guess I'm living in the stone age!

The Boston Lady said...

I agree Pat. It's a day brightener. I like the look of the blue very much. I always forget that you have that wonderful bed frame. Leave it white!!! Ann

Nice little changes! It's always nice to find time to squeeze in those small changes. The color is nice...I like blue as it reminds me of my mom. It was her favorite color. Visiting back from the B Farm. Now following.
