I bought a bag of balls (weird to say that right...) The decorative kind. They are the wooden, potpourri type. They were red, purple, and brown. Not necessarily the colors that I want in my living room. Plus, I've been trying to add more color in my house.
A quick and easy fix (and cheap I might add) is a cute vintage box filled with those wooden, fake plant balls spray painted to match my decor.
Now balls aren't that easy to paint, Just FYI. The easiest way that I found to paint them is to put them in a box and spray them inside of there. Less over spray and it seems to coat them a lot better cause you can roll the balls around while you are spraying them.
The cute little basket that I have these balls in, is actually a plate holder for disposable plates. I like to use what I've got. Leaves a few extra pennies in my pocket. I don't mind it being black, but I haven't gotten any turquoise in this corner of my living room, so it might find itself at the wrong end of a spray paint can in the near future. *insert evil laugh*
Now I am officially a dork my husband says.
