If something in your home isn't working for you, maybe you don't need to go out and buy something new. Maybe that item just needs a little "makeup" to look fresh and new. Everyone knows about painting a piece of furniture, or an object like a lamp or the above bracket sconce, but have you thought about painting other items, too?
This plate from the 1990s, nice decorative piece, but the colors are not compatible with the design scheme anymore. Why dispose of something like this when possibly it can be refreshed and look new? (I had already begun painting when I remembered to snap the photo.)

Some artfully applied craft paints and a coat of spray-on shellac to seal the paint revved it right up, and it will find a new home on the colorful back porch very soon -- when the pollen season is over.
You might remember that the fabric on this old estate sale patio sofa on the same porch got some fresh paint, too. No need to settle for the wrong colors!
