I was debating if this little project even warranted a blog post because it’s so simple. Like really simple.
But I figured if this little simple project was on my to-do list for months before I finally got around to it, it’s worth celebrating.
Okay maybe celebrating is a bit strong, but it’s a good reminder to all of us that sometimes these little projects just take forever to get to but they’re still worth doing.
This metal piece used to be black, like a lot of things in our house, and I painted it white.
No big story there, I was just ready to lighten it up a bit.

Plus I’m a paint hoarder (collector), so this project cost exactly $0.
I used Country Chic Paint’s Vanilla Frosting (surprise, surprise, my fave paint color).
And now it looks lovely on the green wall.
If you’re sick of your wall decor, remember paint is always a (free or cheap) option.
Or even just moving pieces from room to room can make a space feel like new (whether you paint it or not).
We had this piece in our family room for a long time, and the black worked with the red and tan in there, but I love the new white look with the green walls.
GET THE LOOK:
