From brassy to oil rubbed sassy…

I know you have one, or you got rid of one!  The brass lamps, maybe it has a glass bottom or it’s all brass.  You can change all that with a little spray paint.  I found this one at Goodwill for under $5.  I loosened all the parts, lightly sanded the brass, wrapped newspaper and tape around the areas that I didn’t want painted and sprayed away.  I don’t have any before pictures, please use your imagination.

One thing just lead to another and a theme was born.  With a little help from bobbers~

and Ebay (paint by numbers-water scenes)~

A navy and white (just says Lake House) quilt from Big Lots, pillows from TJ Maxx~

And to think it all started with Oil Rubbed Sassy (formally known as Brassy)!

Once again Murphy approved!

Get inspired, recycle something!  You’ll smile everytime you look at it!
