Robin's Egg Blue

For a long weekend I thought I would get a lot more checked off my apartment to do list. I just had too much fun.  I decided I would work on a quick 20 minute project so I would at least feel productive.

 I have had this mirror since my first apartment after college and originally it was a dark brown.  I then went through a phase of painting everything white, including this mirror.  However in a beige hallway  surrounded only by white trim and cupboards it seemed boring.

When I was at JoAnn's this weekend I came across this "tool" for  $4.00 (I think this was the best $4 I have ever spent).  Maybe some of you already own one but I didn't know how wonderful a spray paint gun could be! Sometimes its the simple things in life.

I picked up a Robin's Egg blue.

And of course painted the raised portion with my favorite metallic gold paint.  You can never have too much gold right?


The entry hall looks way more cheery now and I feel productive for getting a DIY off my to do list.
