Easy necklace DIY

Super fast and easy project to share with you tonight! I've been wanting to do this one for a while, but when I pulled out my spray painting setup for a furniture project due to the moving we're doing this week... it was time!

I wanted to give this necklace a fresher, brighter look. The metal color isn't really me, but I loved its bib shape. So here's the "before"...

I used spray primer (on the left) and cheap-o spray paint (on the right), white this time. I could have used a more fun color but I thought white would go with a lot. I didn't end up using the spray enamel, in the middle, since I realized it's not really meant as a topcoat/sealant, but as an enamel on its own. So ignore it. 

Step 1: Prime the underside of the necklace. Wait a bit for it to dry a little.

Step 2: Prime the top of the necklace!

After that's dry... Repeat with the spray paint! Then...

Yay! Now it's much fresher. Love how fast and easy a spray paint update is!

    2. I had a similar necklace in an ugly metal that I didn't like and I painted it with mint nail polish for a totally updated look!

  7. I'd love to know how this wears over time. I prepped and painted a piece of jewelry awhile back and it started coming off after the 2nd wear. It'd be great if this worked!

    1. I'm wondering that, too! So far it's fine but if it wears off in a couple wearings I'll be bummed!

  10. Wonderful idea. I'm always looking at jewelry in different consignment stores and I never buy it because of the color. You have given me hope on changing the color. Thanks.
