remember my button monogram i did over christmas?
well, it just sat around my house, leaned against a window, never finding a home.
i just didn’t love it. and sean definitely didn’t love it!
this project was a case of “sometimes too much is just too much”.
as much as i love adding color to our home, these colors were just too disorganized and random.
after a lot of hemming and hawing (clearly i’m getting old), i decided to spray paint it.
i had a can of glossy cream leftover from the owl, so i started there, thinking i could change it if i didn’t love it. it took several coats to cover all that color and get in the tiny grooves and button holes.
but i love it now!
it still is super fun because its made of buttons, but it doesn’t scream at me anymore.
it sits right above an already colorful area – the laundry cart that houses our family games.
i am still amazed at what a can of paint can do!
ps – the wall color is silver sage by restoration hardware, but there’s a catch: i had it color matched because i don’t have a restoration hardware close, nor did i want to pay the hefty price. the color was matched more grey than the original, but i still loved it.
