Also if you notice how her console is almost to the door. This is because the console itself is WAY to big for her apartment, as is the chair/ottoman. Instead of throwing the vase out, we decided to paint it the same color, Rustoleum Vintage Teal. Krystal, now becoming quite the novice, started spraying the vase with the white first. She remembered spraying it white first makes a color pop!


When it dried, she began painting with the Vintage Teal:

I then painted the base Silver, also by Rustoleum. Here it is finished…I would like to add a thin line of silver around the lip of the vase. But, until she hears my new idea, this is how it looks till monday:

This is my craft room.It matches up my stuff perfectly…hmmm.

My email is kelleysdiy@gmail.com. What I told Krystal first….color. What is your favorite color. Hers was the Teal color. That became her color for POP! She spent under $170 on her living room, and her apartment looks beautiful. Most of the money went to the rug she purchased first at RugsUSA.com online. They have great sales going on all the time. Choose Your Rug in the colors you love. That is the best place to start.
