Bought these for a buck/pair at the local thrift:
Not lovin' the 70s ceramic class look. Before I walked out the door, I picked up these, half off that day because they had a blue tag ($2.50):
Not my style, too traditional or something. Enter: glossy white spray paint.
Ahhh, much better. The guinea fowl are no longer foul (sorry, I had to go there - tacky accessories call for a tacky play on words).
And the magnolias are much better. More contemporary yet still fit into my urban cottage-ish wanna-be house.
I don't think I've found the perfect place for the birds yet. Decorating is always a work in progress, though...isn't it?
What do you think? Do you have stuff that could use a clean coat of solid white? Or black? Or turquoise? Whatever fits in your decor. It's good to see beyond what things are to what they could be.
Oh, and by the way, I was a featured guest on www.remodelaholic.com for my buffet/hutch post. How cool is that??
