Glamorous Gold

Remember this Trashy Treasure, I vamped up HERE back in 2012?
I found a new spot for this beauty above the doorway in our Sunroom
but orange just wasn't going to cut it with the turquoise and yellow decor.
Soooo, out came the bottle of gold spray paint, again...haha. Hope
you're not getting sick of the color yet?! 

Before and After

Do you have any favorite colors of spray paint
you like to use on your DIY projects?
I think I just might venture out on the next!

DIY - Pantry Makeover

It all started on a scratch piece of paper...

The four large wire shelves just HAD to go. Whoever
can keep their pantry organized and clean with those,
high five! This girl just isn't a fan of wire.

I apologize for not taking a before photo...the wire 
shelves were removed too quickly and thrown to
the curb for trash pick-up.

The hubs spent two days on this project and we 
love the results!! The only thing we changed while
he was cutting and installing the wood was making an
extra pan/tray cubby, so we ended up with four instead
of three. Once we were able to visualize the gap, it just
needed an extra cubby.

Note to self: paint before, touch up later...
I was the painter and couldn't help but get paint
all over me. Obviously, I'm NOT a professional!

With the ceilings being high...putting a large shelf above
would be silly, since we wouldn't be able to get to it, so 
a skinny shelf proves to be the PERFECT spot for vases
since I still haven't opened the cupboard above our fridge yet.

and here it is in it's non cluttered glory!

Have you updated your pantry? Leave a link to your
pantry post in the comments below, we'd all love to see!

Coordinate with Paint

I added this piece in our Sunroom (just not on the main
wall) and wanted to  have it flow with the room, 
so a bit of frog painter tape,
a touch of GOLD spray paint and tadaaa...

An easy way to update a piece of art or make
it coordinate with the tone of your room.

I actually like it better now!

DIY - Just Spray Paint It

Paint GOLD!!!

If you happened upon my sunroom wall post
then you know I went a little crazy with the spray paint.
Step away from the can...haha

The reason the wall took me all day,
was because I tweaked a few things here and there
as I was hanging and just so happened to have one
can of spray paint in the house... Thanks to an
impulsive buy at the craft store and because I
give away all of our paint before we moved
this past summer, boo...


The birdcage was fine but looked a little dull, so it
got a new facelift and now sits center stage ready
to clip some Instagram photos to it. Orange wasn't
happening in the room but I love the frame, so of but I'll probably end of repainting it 
black. I even got down and dirty with the screws
for the birdcage since they are visible. I think I
might be painting a few of my hubby's tools next!


This little nugget was tucked away for a rainy day,
with plans to make a Shhh, don't ring, sign...but as
you can see, nada wholada going on with it. It was
however the perfect size and color for 'the wall', so
I dusted off the Cricut and made a very sketchy
stencil. I taped one letter outline down at a time,
using a bit of snail adhesive for the inside little bits
and sprayed. The paint dried fast, so I was able
to move onto the additional letters quickly. By the 
time I got to the 'e', I was pretty darn proud of
myself and will be trying my hand at more of this
in the future but maybe with proper tools.

Fall in LOVE with Decorating

Swung by Wally World today to snag a few of my favorite
glass jars (yup, I just said Wally World) and to my surprise, 
I found a few other fun items, to get me in the mood to pull
out the dreaded but fun orange topped tubs from storage...

Two pieces of black 'creepy' gauze, One large glass jar, One 
black large pumpkin, A sparkly BEWARE sign, A large black owl
and A roll of black sparkly tulle were the only purchases. 
The rest was tucked away, nothing got broken in the move, woohoo!!

I didn't realize my hubby had a fear of rats until last year,
when his co workers would leave them in unsuspecting places
and he'd end up chucking them back at them...haha
...let's see if he can find the two in our house! 

A little bit creepy, a little bit dreamy...
and a lot of fun, don't you think?

Sunroom Wall Decor

Every room in our home is starting to feel a bit more complete. 
Yesterday, I finished this wall in our sunroom/mudroom
and love gazing at all the fun pieces.

I used a can of gold spray paint to make a few items 
fit the color scheme I was working towards and...
ta daa

Do you have a wall that is looking for a change? 
Try grouping 'like' items together and lay everything
out on the floor, moving things around until you like
the arrangement, then grab a hammer. Happy Hanging!
An afternoon coffee is always a welcome treat
after a productive day!

LeroyLime Craft Room Reveal

 The BIG craft room reveal is finally here!!! 
I'm happy to say, the shop is now open again and off of vacation mode.
Moving is a far cry from vacation and it feels oh so wonderful to 
call a place home again...

without further ado, please excuse the photo overload
and enjoy my new crafty space!

My old desk, along the back wall. My handy hubby cut the
top down to fit the space and sanded off the dings and marks
from moving...I love the new vintage look of the corners and 
decided to not repaint it.

 The new desk is simple, huge and pretty much
pure awesomeness!! 5 X 5' top with two IKEA shelving
units as the legs and lots of storage, yipee!!

The punch board made it through the move and was
screwed directly into the studs...this bad boy is heavy 
without the punches on there but makes great use
of wall space. I picked up a few new buckets from IKEA
since we live near one again.

I bought these almost 9 years ago (my first Etsy purchase)
and they've been amazing for my ink pads. Keeps them all
accessible and in view so I can easily snag the color or colors
I'm working with at the time.

I love these little bars and picked up a few with the intent
of possibly using them in the space but not sure where or
what for. Once the ink pad holders were up, I needed
something to fill the space between them and voila!
The perfect place for scissors, adhesive and other items
I use on a daily basis.

These old DVD holders from IKEA have been my 
go to for stamp sets...if there's any advice I can give
about organizing a craft room, 
It's a must, products actually get used since
they are in plain sight and aren't stashed away,
clearly forgotten in a bin or box.

Filing cabinets for all of my 8-1/2 X 11" Cardstock

Clear glass jars for visible and cute storage!

I've had one bookcase for years BUT picked up
a second to even out my space. No worries, I had
plenty to put on the shelves! haha

If you use glitter or embossing powder, this is THE 
BEST way to store it. I keep a plastic spoon in each 
container and sprinkle on what is needed directly
over the container with all the extra falling back
inside. Pop the top back on and no mess to clean up!

A skinny IKEA shelf for my 12X12" Cardstock

A small spot between the windows was perfect
for this little shelving unit. My hubby just had to 
lop off a bit from the top molding so it would fit
and he aged it up with the sander.

A bright photo without my chair. I LOVE 
all the natural light that pours in.

What's your favorite part??

 If you need me, this is where I'll be planting my to get some paper cuts, my friends!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments!
I reply to comments that have email addresses attached; 
so if you'd like me to reply, make sure you'd not a 
"no-reply blogger" or leave your email 
address with your comment
Thanks so much!

Craft Room

We've had formal dining rooms before and find that
with small children, we don't use them as often as a kitchen
nook or counter, meet my new 
LeroyLime Dining Room Craft Room!!

Our entire house was painted a cream/off white/beige
color...blah, right?? We chose Perspective CSP5, a
light and dreamy shade of grey.

and now for the organizing...hanging and tackling
the remainder of my craft boxes.
Stay tuned for the end result!
