I love a good DIY. Include a can of spray paint? I'm in. Spray paint has to be one of my favorite tools for adding freshness to my surroundings. It's easy, inexpensive and can completely transform a piece. When I was decorating my son's nursery, I used matte white to repurpose some ceramic owls. They turned out lovely. When I stumbled upon a 24 karat gold spray at the craft shop, I had to give it a try. I kept it simple by adding stripes to a white vase and, a geometric shape to a concrete planter. The spray applied nicely, didn't require a primer and only needed one coat. The photos don't do this justice, but the glow is striking, especially in sunlight.
What you'll need to add gold geometric shapes:
- planter or vase
- washi tape
- 24 karat spray paint (or colour of your choice)
Now follow these simple steps:
- Begin with a clean, dry object
- Use washi tape to tape off areas you don't want paint to cover. I used paper for larger areas.
- Shake, spray and let dry
- Peel masking tape off slowly once completely dry
The finished product!
I originally wrote this post last June (I know, serious procrastinator here) so I've had plenty of time to give a few more items that golden glow.
