Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend and that you were able to spend your time doing what you love. We had no plans so the weekend nice and productive. I actually went over to a client’s and we tackled the last element in her huge living room cabinet. If you follow me on twitter, facebook or instagram you may have seen a few sneak peeks of the styling in the cabinet. And we were beyond excited when Kelly Wearstler shared the pics with her pieces in them on her pinterest page HERE & HERE.
Now, down to the before and after! I loved the addition of the large Elk antlers in the cabinet, but after seeing what others have done with plain antlers using paint we had to try it! Click Here to check out one of my favorites from Etsy using the smaller antlers.
BEFORE: The antlers get a bit lost in the cabinet because the colors are so similar. Everything else was in place so we though brining in a bit of color and sparkle would be perfect to tie everything together.
AFTER: We headed to the local craft store and picked up tons of acrylic paint options, glue and of course glitter!!! We painted one of them with a bold pattern, one solid silver with matching tips, one silver with a turquoise ombre finish and one that is a copper and gold ombre. Here are a few shots of each antler….
And now for the over all AFTER look in the cabinet!!! I am loving the changes, the pops of color tie everything together and the best part…the project was a great way to relax and enjoy the afternoon!
