First project: Sconces
The brass sconces were dated and we couldn’t decide on replacements. I thought I’d test out some paint with the realization that if they were ruined we’d have to just buy new ones. At the time we hadn’t even decided the furniture layout never mind the feel for the living room.

Second project: Desk chair
We found this chair for sale down the street at a house that is for sale. The white paint was chipping and I decided black would be a bolder statement with the white desk. A little sanding and a little glossy black paint does wonders.
Third project: Door knobs
It was very tempting to buy all new antique glass door knobs for the master bedroom. But we needed six knobs and I would have to buy them sight unseen online. Goodbye brass door knobs, hello antique bronze.
