Hi there and happy Tuesday! Today will be the first of two "dot" posts - so stay tuned for the second one coming up later this week. So, once we got back from our semi-relaxing vacation I looked around the house and decided it needed a little brightening, a smidgen of color and some parts just needed to look a bit more polished.
First, I focused my attention on the dining room. The table has been home to various items under or in the glass light fixtures I picked up at ReStore a few months ago. When I was doing a closet clean out I found cream-colored runner that I hadn't used since moving here. It was on the plain side but I thought with some gold paint stamped in a playful shape it could look pretty and chic.
So I pulled out my trusty metallic gold craft paint by Martha Stewart and cut a regular old kitchen sponge into a kind of circular shape - I actually think that not having it be perfectly round made the runner look more modern.
I just randomly stamped the gold paint covered sponge onto the runner until it looked finished.
I didn't iron it because I was being lazy: ) and I liked the rumpled look of it under all the glass. Ironing it on the opposite side of the paint will help set the paint though so I will probably do this - at some point!
Have a great day all!
