This post is a little How-To, but it’s also a Go-Do. Let me explain. If you are like me, you have about ten itsy bitsy little things about your home that you’re not crazy about that you walk past everyday with doing anything to change. I am so guilty of this! Why is it that I can easily use my spring break to slap three layers of paint on an entire dinning set, but I can’t take five minutes to change out an ugly brown switch plate for a white one?
Anyway, it has always bugged me that all of the frames in this grouping are blue or white except for one. That little tan frame drove me nuts, but I never took the time to do anything about it, until this weekend.
After this, I used a dry paper towel to wipe on two more layers of white paint. This trick gives you a beautiful, weathered texture. If I wanted more wood to show through, I could have stopped at one extra coat.
This is your challenge: Just do it! That tiny change you’ve been meaning to make forever? Go and do it this weekend! Now that I’m on a roll, I might even change out that brown switch plate.
