Hello lovely Friends! We are a bit drenched in our area this weekend…perfect weather for working indoors on a few small thrifty makeovers, wouldn’t you agree?
Today I’m sharing one I found a couple of weeks ago. I knew it was still perfectly functional, just a little outdated:
A quick paint job (DIY chalk paint), and it’s fresh and new again!
I love you, paint.
So much better…unless of course you are a huge mallard fan, then I’m truly sorry I ruined this.
I was going to paint the word “keys’ or “mail” or “mallard” (not really) on the front, but I was feeling a bit lazy and found this old handle in my hardware stash instead.
I had painted it a while back to see if paint would make it look less dated and I didn’t think it helped much, but I ‘m liking it on this little makeover.
Here’s how I attached it to the front since I couldn’t really screw it in from the other side:
Let dry for a good 24-48 hours.
I removed the brass key holders before painting and gave them a coat of Rustoleum’s oil rubbed bronze. You know I love to share pics of spray painting in action for your DIY pleasure, but I don’t have one this time.
And with mail…
So much function in this little treasure!
Sometimes the smallest projects are the most fun!
If the rain clears enough to take pics of my sectional, I’m doing it, otherwise I’ll be back on Friday sharing what I did with these:
Update: Check out what I did with these tea towels here now!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
