Wall Art Transformation

Sorry I have kinda been MIA lately
Remember this post
Well apparently after taking care of my cute boys
three days later I was not so lucky and it was my turn
I got the tummy flu this weekend
and was in bed all day Sunday

I HATE being sick especially tummy stuff
but I did get in 4 hours of the six hour version 
of Pride and Prejudice in 
So that was super exciting 
now I just gotta find time to finish it 

Luckily I was much better by memorial day
So there was some Jam makin' with my mother in law, 
(more about this later :) )
cemetery visiting with my family
and a BBQ with the Kjar clan
And today I am 100% myself again

 (Me and M on the Tramp on at the Memorial Day BBQ)

Anyway....Getting on with the post
 Since my room is finally getting a makeover...
Slowly but surely
I figured I would get started on some of the decor
So I started with these really cute wall art pieces
They are 6 1/2 X 6 1/2 inch boxes

(sorry this picture is so blurry but it was the only before picture I had)
Darn don't ya hate that!
We got these for our Wedding from a friend
I love them the flowers are so pretty
but I'm not gonna have black in my room and 
I really thought these would look pretty in there
I just didn't know what color to do them

At first I thought brown
But that would be kinda boring 
so Ty (hubby) suggested Yellow
Of course I was right on board with that
Yellow is my favorite color after all and
Yellow is going to be one of our new colors
I was so excited and hopped right on that

First thing I did was tape them up with some painters tape
FREE...we already have so much of this stashed around
I'm not quite sure why we have so much
But I am sure glad we did

Then I went and got the Krylon BauHaus Gold
It isn't gold at all it is more of a pretty mustard yellow
And I LOVE it

And here they are spray painted, tape off and
What do you think?
I love the Sepia photos against this Yellow!

It is exactly the color I was going for for our room
I have another really fun transformation that I am using this color for
I was working on it today but it won't be done for a few days
so make sure to check back :)
