This is probably the quickest, simplest makeover I've ever done. I picked up these second hand book ends for a crazy low price. I thought they were $2 each and was happy to pay that, but was pleasantly surprised to learn they were $2 for the pair. I like gold accents in design, which are making a big come back, but these puppies were a sort of late 80s not-cute shade of gold. So I did as many a design blogger has done before me and pulled out the primer and Heirloom White spray paint I had on hand.
After a quick couple of sprays of each, I ended up with these:
I didn't bother using a sealer - I almost never do. I start with the assumption that I'm going to change the color down the line any way, so what is the point? I may even bring these back to gold eventually, but a more modern shade. Well, there you have it, that was my first before and after makeover share!
