One of the best parts of being back at home on the Oregon Coast is exploring and sharing all of my favorite places (and finding new ones) with my husband and Lucy. We take small chunks of time throughout the week, grab our cameras and go on little adventures!

We are still unpacking and getting settled over here and I am slowly getting our house decorated. We are on a budget and to top it off- living in a small town- where there are fewer shopping options. I love accessorizing with lots of white objects and what better way to get creative and work on a budget than to paint all kinds of things white! Armed with a few cans of heavy duty- all purpose spray paint I went to work turning everything white...
Branches from the yard were immediately transformed with a little white paint!
Two cheap large green glass vases were painted and then sanded for a weathered look.
A cardboard deer head (from urbanoutfitters.com) even got a coat of white paint!
But my favorite transformation was purchasing a variety of aluminum duct connectors at the hardware store and painting them white and then using them as candle holders. I LOVE the way they turned out and they look great paired with the rest of our white accessories!
who needs to spend a lot of money on home decor when you have paint!
