Mackenzie-Childs Inspiration

Hello sweet friends !

         While shopping for wall paint to do on our guest rooms we are remodeling, I 'remembered' to buy some spray paint in Black and White to paint a silver, tarnished pitcher in the 'Mackenzie-Childs' style I saw on Pinterest one very similar and got inspired ASAP !

I've been so busy and my house is upside down because of the hard work remodeling the bathroom, walking closet and two rooms that was my DDs before and now guest rooms and to say the least of all the dust I'm swallowing everyday !

 For the friends that haven't followed me lately, it's a mayor and 'total' remodel of everything in the two guest rooms and bathroom, as it was way over due.
We are in the third week and it's almost there.

Anyhow, I bought the spray paint and hubby said: 'Where are you going to work in this house in such chaos ?!'  I said, I'll just wait till later, no biggie.

I mentioned this to my friend and she said: My hubby will do it for you. I said, really? She said yeah. To make the story short. I gave it to him and here it is my-his DIY Mackenzie-Childs pitcher as a flower vase. You judge for yourself. 

I love it !!

Didn't the 'Mackenzie-Childs Inspiration' pitcher came out adorable ?

The before tarnished, very old silver pitcher and the black and white spray paint I bought for the job.

Our friend sanded it down first, then painted the whole thing in white. Waited till the paint was totally dry the following day, to be sure.

The following day he placed masking tape forming checks and the squares showing, he proceeded to spray paint them in black.

He makes it sound easy, but hubby said that it might have been a very 'daunting and difficult job' and he was so glad he didn't volunteer, ever ! (lol)


I'm loving it and now I'm thinking what else to do in M.CH's. style!

I will DIY myself next time, maybe something in wood, or whatever !

Notice the inside of the pitcher's peak in stripes.

Look how pretty the inspiration I found on Pinterest is... and hey, these are DIY too!

While they were painting the girls wooden book shelves in the guest rooms, hubby had the four kitchen chairs painted off white as well.
I use the fourth chair in the laundry room and I bring it when there's more people.
We eat six in the kitchen's farm table, sometimes.

Hope in another full week it will all be finished and then I will be decorating; the best part of any remodel.

Thank you dear friends for your sweet visits, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
