Feeling Blue

In lue of this not so fun, snowy, freezing weather i have been in need of a change. Not really me but my living room. I have been very distressed about what color i would change in it. I love my barn red, mustards, and olive green... but i want bright and vocal and cheery if you will.
So when i was in the local Roberts, i saw these perfect cloth napkins and decided then and there that i would change my colors to.... blue!! I picked out some coordinating paint and off i went not really knowing what i would use the paint on.


Sitting on my counter was this. dark and dreary not having a place in my house really. But man a killer deal. i got this at WALMART??? for $2.00. It is roughed up a little on the bottom. I took one look at it and knew she had to be blue.

So i did it. (see the damage on the bottom) And love it. I then used the lovely Tobacco Ralph Lauren glaze, and


Wala... I love it. But i can't just have one thing blue in my living room. And i don't want to go out in the blizzard to bad. So i just went to town painting stuff.


This frame used to be RED. Oh how i love this. Again paint with the Tobacco on top.


And just a random twig ball.
Love the change. It's like spring in my house. If only it was outside too.

PLEASE tell me where I can find the Ralph Lauren Glaze! I hear everyone in blogland talking about it and using it but have no clue where to find it. I only have a Lowes in my area but didnt see it there. Help!
