Seeing Green

I have been going spray paint crazy lately! If you have followed my personal blog you would know that I have recently added on a whole first floor to our home. We are loving it and I am enjoying getting to decorate new spaces. We have a lot of brown, tan, and white going on and I have been dying to add more color. I decided to add some green in the living room and dining room. Spray paint was the obvious choice! So easy!
First I spray painted two vases. They were standard vases that you get from florist. I think I have 4!
This is what it looked like at first…

I painted another one moss green and fell in love with the color.

It found a home on one of our bookshelves in the Living Room…

Notice the other splash of green? I had these votive candle holders from Southern Living and thought they would be easy to change…

Then on to the candle holders…There are 2 of these on our mantle and they turned out so good!

This is not a very good picture, but they are lovely in person! HA! I just need to get white candles and the look will be complete.DSC05612(rev 1)
The I had so many black iron pieces in our original house and I needed a change! This scrolly thing was painted black and placed in the kitchen. Again I was unable to get any good pictures b/c of the bright lights, but it is my FAVORITE!

Good ideas. I used to have a ton of those vases lying around! Would have been a cool project for them.
