Happy Friday! I normally do Pinterest Picks today, but I have a little painting project to show you instead. I recently joined the BBA Team on Etsy, which is a group of bloggers who also have their own shops, and they have a monthly challenge set up for members to try. February's prompt was to make something red, and since I had this old mirror from GoodWill just hangin' around in the junk room...
I thought it was a good candidate for a makeover! The mirror itself was $2.99, and I picked up a bottle of tomato red acrylic paint for about $1.
It took two coats, which I did while watching TV. I didn't even tape off the glass! (Rebel!) Here it is now, hanging in my studio next to the robot print I got for Christmas:
I like how they look against the pale blue walls. That color is leftover from the previous owners and I really love it. I was going to stick with the same blue and yellow color scheme from my office in the condo, but now that I'm seeing the red against the blue, I might change things up after all. We shall see.
Have you done any quick DIYs lately? What about making anything red? It's not a color I use a lot, but a pop here and there is nice. What are you up to this weekend?
