I bought another box of 1000 silver tacks at UFO for $25.
My most recent use of tacks were for these pumpkins. I painted them and added silver and brass tacks. These are for my Thanksgiving table, but could also be used for Halloween too.
Here is my powder room embellished with the tacks. This room is VERY difficult to photograph. It doesn't help that I'm not a great photographer.
This makeover started by painting the room black and replacing the small builder's mirror with a much taller one purchased at Ikea. The light fixture was purchased for $30 at a second hand store. I painted it silver and swagged it over the sink. I added the tacks around the mirror and to the ceiling and the recessed areas.
I continued them to the bump out on the ceiling. The plan is to eventually do crown molding in this room. Just haven't gotten to it yet. The tacks look like small pin points of light in person.
and to the accessories to tie the room together.
This is the rotunda that leads from my family room into the master bedroom. It is a small round room, again sorry it's hard to take pictures of it.
