HI!  I am very excited about this post.  It was so easy and made such an impact on this farmhouse scale!

Farmhouse Scale Makeover

An Easy DIY Project

 

I have had this scale in my garage for a long time.  It was a leftover from my store when I sold paper by the pound.  Now the farmhouse look is very popular and there it was just sitting on the shelf.  I dusted it off and decided it would be super cute in a fun color.

Supplies Needed:

  • Scale
  • Screwdriver
  • Yellow Spray Paint

I was himming and hawing over the color, and my husband actually suggested the yellow.  I ended up loving it.

This is how it looked before I started.  It was gray and blah.   Once I started I could hardly wait between coats.  I wanted it in the house so bad.  But first things first.

I removed the scale “face” by removing the screws.  Then I was able to use spray paint without having to fuss over masking.  I really hate masking and I am not very good at it.  Plus I don’t like it when the paint gets underneath the mask.  Then I have to try to touch up and that is not fun with a spray paint.

Here it is after the first coat of yellow.  Cute right?

Little by little, I am incorporating the farmhouse look into my home décor.  I love the look of it and like most people I love Fixer Upper show on HGTV.  So this is a new vignette that I created using my freshly painted farmhouse scale.

What do you think?

If you like the farmhouse look you may like the Farmhouse Lamp I made.  It fits perfectly into this display, and I just love it.
