Golden Chickadees

One of the first things I bought when Nick and I were decorating our first-ever place together was a pair of bookends with little birds on top. I still love them now, but the color just wasn't right on our white bookshelf. They had started to feel really blah to me. So I decided to give them a little pick-me-up in the form of a few coats of gold paint. Sometimes all it takes is a few minutes to transform an old piece into something fresh again!

I think the end result is really nice! They add a little pep to things there on our big bookshelf.
Do you ever feel the need to freshen up old belongings?

  1. I'd never have thought to spray bookends like that gold, but it's such a clever idea! They look so perfect! x
