You know I am! Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! We are off on a little Spring Break getaway (follow along here on Instagram!) but I just had to pop in and share a little green with you today!
We had a beautiful day several days ago and so I couldn't resist breaking out the spray paint! I've had these lanterns forever. I found them at Hobby Lobby years ago before they had a fabulous lantern selection like they do now. There were with their seasonal garden section and were white shabby chic, which isn't really my style but I loved the shape. So, I painted them black right away, and after all of the years of use they needed a touch up.
I always struggle with what to put on my tables, do you? But I was at a friend's house the other day and she had a pair of lanterns on her kitchen table, which looked so good. So when considering pulling out my old faithful black pair, I decided that area needed a little dose of green. There's already enough black around there!
My trusty "Meadow Green" from Rustoleum did the trick.
For the candle, I used some nailheads and sprayed them black, then just stuck them in to make polka dots.
By the way, did you know that styrofoam makes painting tacks, screws, etc. super easy? I can't wait to show you what came packed in that styrofoam! (Stay tuned for that next Monday.)
I think they turned out very Kate Spade-ish!
To fill them, I wasn't quite ready to use seashells yet, so I went for sparkle and picked up a few boxes of acrylic diamonds and some wooden balls from Hobby Lobby, then mixed in some gold and silver Christmas ornaments and bells that I still had around.
And while I was at it, I re-painted the frame that's on the chalkboard wall too.
I'd been waiting for just the right spot for this artwork that my daughter did at school. Isn't it perfect?
