Actually, it was more like this …
And sometimes THIS …
When I shared our laundry room makeover on Sunday, you might recall the oil tank was looking a LOT different …
I knew all along that I WANTED to paint the oil tank, but Darling Husband? He didn’t think it was a good idea.
… but the pipes looked so good that I JUST. KEPT. GOING.
It was so damn beautiful.
Now, a couple of disclaimers!
Yes, we own the oil tank — and yes, I did take a careful look at the sticker before painting it. The sticker said “DO NOT REMOVE OR PAINT THIS LABEL.”
So if we’re talking about not painting a label, that kind of implies that paint might be NEAR the label, right?
It took three coats to cover it nicely, and it looks SO pretty in my new laundry room — a fun splash of turquoise instead of a nasty grey beast.
And it’s the perfect spot to prop up my custom paint storage boards. (More on those tomorrow!)
