before & after: spray painted wall decor

Earlier this week, I wrote about our updated guest room {here}.  Today, I thought I would share a couple of the projects we did for the room.  First off, the two gold candle sconces…


I bought the candle sconces a couple of years ago at Home Goods and never really found a place for them.  Originally, they were both silver.


As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I opted to use gold accents in the guest bedroom to try to match the sliding closet doors.  My husband (who has become a pro at spray painting) spray painted them gold to fit in with the rest of the colors of the guest room.  I was actually really surprised how much fancier the sconces looked in gold.  Plus, the gold made them a lot easier to hang up with standard picture hooks (that usually come in gold). 


Next up is the gold mirror that we hung above the painted thrift store desk {here}


The mirror was actually something we bought awhile ago at a garage sale and then never did anything with.  The mirror has been sitting in our garage and so I had my husband spray paint it gold as well.


Now it looks a lot better and is much more useful in the house instead of the garage!


And here are some quick comparisons...



Amazing what a difference a quick coat of spray paint can make!
