Yesterday we slapped some drawer liners in the old RASTafari nightstand and re-organized to make early-morning blind searches much easier.
Now that the insides are spruced, it’s high time to dress up the top a bit, and make it look a little more grown up.
The artwork that has been on display since we unveiled the Rast was a simple love note post-it I left for Bill on my way out of town.
Though the note was cute, an update was in order.
Remember these guys, originally scored at Goodwill after being dramatically reduced from Target?
Well the vase still has yet to find a home, but the dodecahedron object was FINALLY going to see the light. But it was boring and white. In a rental apartment with white walls. On top of a white dresser. BOOORINGG.
Fortunately, we have our friend, spray paint.
So the poor little object was zapped with a slow and steady coat of this shiny-almost-mirror-finish silver paint to reveal this gem…
The box may have also taken a coating too. That’s what cardboard is for! But I couldn’t just set this little pointed friend alone ontop of the RAST. He needed some friends. Some grown up, shiny friends.
Luckily, I had made a carefully selected purchase from Joss & Main during YHL’s curated collection. I had also used the $10 first-time buyer coupon I got from Pottery Barn coupled with a sweet sale to basically walk out with a free picture frame.
So I had TWO shiny grown-up looking frames. Let us put something in them!
After some Facebook scouring and tripping down memory lane, I decided on a cute picture from our first Flyers vs Penguins game, and a colorful shot of us outside the Carnegie Science Museum.
After some quick clipping, they were all set to join the pointy object!
Now we have the perfect trio of pretty to add a bit of sparkle and a more grown-up vibe to the room.
As for the Target Pointy friend, he’s looking quite spiffy with his shiny friends.
The larger frame is from Pottery Barn (no longer available), while the smaller square frame with chain link detail is a Reed and Barton frame from the Joss & Main sale.
As much as I am enjoying these grown-up additions, I cannot wait to share with you the big changes we have planned for the bedroom. Things are going on the walls, and a new color friend will be joining the ranks along with Blue, White and Gray! Let’s just say, it all started with a lamp…
