Often times we have great pieces around the house, it just takes a bit creativity, imagination, and some TLC to morph it into a new piece. A perfect example is a once art piece that I stumbled upon at Hilary’s house while Erica and I were recently there to help her with her dining room and kitchen accessorizing.
Before – the colors just didn’t work with the space anymore and Hilary was thinking of getting rid of the piece altogether. She then told me she wanted a bulletin board for her kitchen and the wheels starting turning in my head. Why not turn the once art work piece into a bulletin board?
Leaving the frame color the same, using the beautiful coral hue that is in the dining room, adding a couple cork pieces, and would you look at that? It looks like a brand new piece.
(DISCLAIMER – these AFTER photos were taken at night – the lighting is awful and the colors are much prettier in real life.)
Total cost – $9 dollars, some good quality time with left over dining room paint, and a steady hand while free hand painting.
Stop and think – what pieces might be laying around the house that just need a little update or perhaps a new purpose? You might just be amazed and able to save some money reinventing a tired piece.
