Take this wine rack par exemple.
I found this beauty for $1.50 at an independent dollar store a couple of years ago (shocking that it's not Dollorama, hey?). As soon as I spotted it, I appreciated the simple design. It was painted black wood, with rope at both the top and the bottom (I removed the bottom rope before painting in the photo above).
I am now kicking myself for not buying every single one they carried- you honestly couldn't make this thing for even close to what it cost to buy.
I used it as is in our previous home, and when we moved, I stashed it away as I didn't know what to do with it.
I finally decided to give it a little new life and whipped out my one dolla Martha Stewart paint samples. I mixed my own blend of Arucuan Teal and Sea Glass to find a medium tone that I loved.
Easy switch up, but the colour makes me happy! Add in a few bottles of Christian Lacroix Evian water I bought at Homesense a while back, and for a few bucks I've got a snazzy looking accessory for my buffet.
I love the way that sunlight filters through the bottles. So pretty.
Any easy switch ups you've done lately that have made a big impact?
