I love spray paint

Last week, I posted about giving a chandelier new life with a coat of spray paint.  That was not my first go round with a can of spray paint.  In fact, my obsession with spray paint began in May when I was revamping my dining area.

My inspiration for the walls in my dining area was the picture above from TradHome.  I love the designers use of the multiple wall sculptures and mirrors.  I began searching for something similar that didn't break the bank.  I found my wall flowers on the Plantation Home website.  (love, love, love! this website.  want a million things).  The only problem:  the wall flowers were gold and I needed silver.  Thus, my love affair with spray paint began.

This round of spray painting did not require steel wool or a primer.  I laid out the paper bags and whipped out my spray paint.  It literally took 30 minutes start to finish.  I'm thrilled with the finished product and I think they look fab in my dining area.  (Although I occasionally think I need to hang more.  Any opinions?)
