Happy Hour : Grab a Paintbrush

posted on

Every been in a restaurant when it turns "Happy Hour?"  You notice the mood instantly changes as everyone is ready for fun.  Whenever I'm having a Bad Hair Day, my cure is always a personal Happy Hour.  Of course, I'm hopeless addicted to interiors; so for me, this hour is all about decorating.  

In this new series, we'll look at some quick and happy mood changers for our very own Happy Hour. Each should take about an hour - a mere 60 minutes - to perk up our minds and our rooms. Let's get the party started.

Hot pink might not be for everyone, but don't you love what happened to this old secretary desk? Maybe a Happy Hour is best spent with a can of leftover paint as coloring a piece of furniture might be the happiest way to recharge a room.  Let's look at some examples of fun, sophisticated and thoughtfully painted furniture.  Even if hot pink isn't our thing, these ideas -in any hue- are ripe for the picking.

For my Happy Hour, a spray can of white primer freshened up this small table (Alameda flea market) in our sunroom.  A black tray holds a collection of yellow objects and his/her binoculars as these chairs look out onto our regional park.  Whatever you paint during your Happy Hour, a smile is sure to come your way.
