You get it? Like Black & White (my favorite) except Light? Hmmm. Maybe that’s not as self-explanatory as I first thought…
Anyway, we haven’t had much snow this year but it’s been cold and overcast, even rainy, most of the last 2 months. When I started this Laundry + Craft Room makeover I didn’t realize how much the weather was going to hinder my plan! But it has. *womp, womp*. With that said, I need you to ignore a lot of ugly in these pictures. Makeover IN PROGRESS.
I decided to take the blind down and paint the window mullions black. This is probably, hands down, my favorite thing to do in a space. It instantly changes things in a white room and I just LOVE it! So much drama.
As the title of this posts suggests, I also bought a new fixture, so bye bye boob light!! This gorgeous school house light was under $30 on HomeDepot.com with FREE shipping to my local store. Heck yes!!
The only problem was that I didn’t like the nickel finish on the base. That was an easy fix though!
I just roughed up the surface with sandpaper, covered the wiring and socket with newspaper, wiped it clean and spray painted it. I used a $6 can of Rustoleum Satin Black spray paint meant for several surfaces including metal. It turned out better than I thought it would! If you try this just make sure you do very light coats. In total I think I sprayed 4 coats VERY LIGHTLY.
So that’s where I’m at right now. I have a lot of work to do in this room still but if you look close you can see a sneak peek of another project I’m working on. (Hint: it’s that chippy looking door you see in a few of these shots!).
I’m also working on this door, original to our 1950’s house. I absolutely LOVE it (even though it’s in pretty bad shape) but haven’t decided what I’m going to do to the glass yet. I’d like the outside door to go but I haven’t quite got my husband on board with that idea yet. These things take time 😉
