Besides a few new items here and there, most of the home decor I have lying around my apartment has been with me since or before college. While my collegial sweatshirts, cheap Van Gogh “Starry Night” poster, and silly shot glass necklaces now live in my boxes in my garage, the frames, painted canvases, and knick-knacks pretty much still remain. Naturally, I’ve gotten a little tired of the same things and have attempted in small ways to re-vamp what I have. Once a childish neon pink art project, I recently decided to paint my bank in solid metallic gold to switch it up a bit. The shiny paint adds a whimsical pop to by bedside table considering that the frames and books on my table are pastel.
It took five layers of paint to cover up the once neon pink color of my pig and, even still, you can see traces of its previously blue feet and flower covered body. I don’t mind though since it shows a little bit of its character.
