Spice up your old air vents!

I live in a cute little 1940's home.  Which is awesome(and I love), except for......the dreadful air vents.  Anybody with me on this one?  You know....those honkin' huge metal radiator looking things that take up half the wall.  Yeah those.

Um gross.  

Especially in this color, with a little left over 1940's grime.  

THERE IS HOPE.  Since my living room colors are grays, yellows, and greens, it was time for a change.  No more ugly (is that color gold?) vents.  

Time for a trip to Walmart.  I love their spray paint, especially the Krylon nickel color.

Wipe the vents down, spray, let them dry and whhhhaaaallla! 

Rather than a nuisance, a nice, matching vent.

10 baby nursery favorites

Since little Jaxon is arriving in's getting down to crunch time.  After looking at a million and a 1/2 nurseries, these are my top favs.  I LOVE the modern nursery style with the big and bold patterns.

I will also give a shout out to paint.  It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint or a simple accent wall can do especially if your money pocket is a wee bit tight.
