Do you ever start one job only to be distracted by another? Well that kind of happens to me quite frequently 😉 Case in point, I decided to go through my wardrobe to cull a few pieces. I try to do this semi regularly as things just seem to make their way in.
As I started hurling shoes and clothes into piles I was distracted by my tangled and messy piles of jewellery and accessories. Rather than just tidying them up like a normal person, I decided I NEEDED to paint the back of my wardrobe and create a hanging display for jewellery.
Lucky for me I had a tin of delicious black paint on hand just waiting to be cracked open. I had just received a beautiful gift basket of paint goodies from White Knight Paints as part of their #whiteknightrevive campaign.
So without further ado and despite it being almost school pick up time, I proceeded in a frenzied pace to remove everything including the shelves. I gave it a quick wipe down and within minutes I had started painting!
This range of paint is called Splashes, it’s a water based enamel for interior or exterior application. It goes on so smooth and beautifully!
There’s something about black paint I just love! It’s so striking and it makes the best back drop for things…. especially pretty shiny and sparkly things 😉
I wish I’d taken a ‘before’ photo of the mess and chaos, but it was really a spontaneous decision. So you’ll just have to imagine cluttered shelves with a jumbled mess of stuff!
The jewellery hanger I found at The Reject Shop, I think it was $3. I simply removed the hook and attached the black part to the wall using a couple of picture hooks. The jewellery tree was a gift from my Mum, I think it works nicely against the black.
I left out the bottom shelves to create a dressing table like spot, it really helped to open up the space and created the perfect spot for display.
This mini makeover was so quick and easy! Black paint, a paint brush and a woman on a mission! I love this paint so much that I may or may not of started painting something else whilst I had a wet brush in hand, stay tuned for part two! 😉
Do you love black paint too? Where can you splash some around at your place?
Thanks so much for stopping by,
