An Updated Painting and Seeing Spots

I have been making some major headway in the new house, despite my radio silence on the matter… I have had freelance project after project and haven’t hardly had a moment to update you on what I have been up to otherwise! In fact I am almost completely finished with the Family Room, squeal… can’t wait to do the full room reveal for you guys! Such a fun space…

In the meantime the other areas of my house are needing some love desperately too! Remember this painting I found at Denio’s, my new home away from home? Well as much as I loved it as it was, I wanted something fresh and exciting and so I took a paint brush to it, duh. After all, the reason I purchased it in the first place was the sheer size and of course the price of a mere $3! Doesn’t get better than that folks, except when it gets a new ‘do’ and that ‘do’ is a little reminiscent of a space I loved when I shared it with you here… See the room with the spotted art above the bed? Yep, loved it…

One of my goals in the new house is to turn my design style up a notch and mix things up. I want to really push my design boundaries and find a new style to love for a while! The only way for me to do this is to take risks, so a few dalmatian-ish spots above the bed are a great place to start!

I will spare you the ‘tutorial’ since it’s pretty straightforward, but I will mention that I used Rustoleum spray paint and primer in one to give it a good base coat. I used just regular acrylic craft paint for the spotted goodness and a sponge brush with a round tip. That made the spotting that much easier to do! Easy Peasy update and I couldn’t love how it sets a fresh new tone for the space any more than I currently do. It makes me happy to remember it’s there and stare at it. Ya, that’s probably weird but, it’s my way…

Also… how devious does that pup look. I clearly caught him in the act of something, I have yet to simply find out what… He’s a little out of focus here because I was shooting the painting, but that look on his face is priceless. Part, leave me alone, part, did she see what I was doing? eek…
