It all started with a simple purchase of gold, metallic spray paint.
Bottle in hand, I had the whole day to do whatever I wanted.
Before I knew it I was convincing myself that everything in my apartment should be gold.
Luckily I came to my senses right before I started painting the refrigerator.
|I actually purchased my spray paint at Wal-Mart but anywhere you can |
find non-toxic, gold (or silver) paint is great!
My first project was to jazz up an inexpensive set of stemless wine glasses from Ross (only $4.99). I don't think they look that inexpensive at all anymore.
I followed the directions from my favorite DIY site and it was a relatively easy process that resulted in new glasses that I cannot wait to use!
A few tips!
*Wear plastic gloves if you want to protect your hands or nails, because mine are now covered in gold paint.
*Always spray outside in a well ventilated area!
*Wait until the paint is completely dry before removing the tape!
*Do not put these glasses in the dishwasher. Only hand wash!
Once I had finished the glasses I just walked around my apartment picking up other things that I could paint. You can't go wrong with gold paint-- it makes everything look better!
I bought this hand at Ross as well and used the gold spray to paint the bottom half and cover up the hideous pattern that was there previously. Now I have a chic, two-toned, gold jewelry holder.
These fun, patterned books are actually old Readers Digest that I bought for a dollar each at The Rink in Bethany. Using painters tape and a plastic bag I covered everything but the bind to create a
display-worthy literary collection.
Be glad that I didn't paint the cookies I was making gold too!
They will be on the blog tomorrow
