Afternoon Project

We finally had a break from the rain today!  And although it was overcast earlier, the sun is shining brightly right now.  I was certainly glad to get out of the house today.  I hadn't left home since Sunday and I was beginning to go a little stir crazy.

My day started by being woke up at 6 am by a certain little girl!  I finally decided at 7:20 she wasn't going to go back to sleep and I was tired of being pounced on in bed so I got up.  Every Wednesday I join a group of ladies at church for our Bible study.  We are currently reading through the book "Parenting By God's Promises" by Joel Beeke.  It is fabulous!

So....getting to my project.  After lunch my whole house decided to take a nap, except me.  I knew if I couldn't sleep for a few hours, I would be miserable.  So, while they slept, I got crafty :)

A few years ago I ordered this key ring holder for my livingroom.

It was cute and served its purpose.  I have since then repainted my livingroom but never changed out the keyring holder.  So today, on a whim, I decided it was time to change it!  I started by painting the whole thing with a coat of black.

After I let that dry I wanted to spice it up a little.  I took some silver glitter paint that I had bought a while back to use on a different project and painted just the letters and the pegs.

Once I let it dry good I was able to hang it back up.  I love the black against my burnt orange walls (even though the color looks strange in this picture - it was taken with my phone)!

Here are by before, during and after shots....
