So i’ve mentioned going lumo a few times and although i like the look in some of the pix i save on Pinterest, doing it in my own home just hasn’t felt right. Until now that is. I was dead bored of the table next to our front door and decided it needed a bit of a shake up. Our house is dotted with kitsch white painted animals which i collected for our wedding and although i will never part with the bulldogs (see the wedding DIY here) i’m not that attached to the others anymore – so i figured Mr Parrot wouldn’t mind his makeover.
All it took was three coats of Plascon Aerolak in lumo pink and voila! Mr Parrot is a vision in pink. It’s quite strange – the colour is so bright that it’s difficult for your eyes to adjust and comfortably make out the shape of the item.
Here’s what the entrance table looks like now
And a close up
Cost = less than R50!
