You remember my colorblock tray project? That was super fun. The whole tape-and-spray-paint process is so easy and fast and pretty. I got the idea for these gold-dipped candle holders from a friend... I bought 8 of these plain candle holders at Dollar Tree just knowing they needed to be made over. My friend suggested painting the bottoms!! And, why not gold (like practically everything else in my living/dining rooms, oops...)??
Wrapped these in Parade Magazine pages and taped them off with painter's tape. Spray-painted Krylon shiny gold, rolled over after they dried, gave another coat... done!! Gold dipped candle holders, yay!!
I spread them on the dining room table since I didn't know what to do with all of them... love that they're different heights. Still playing with where they go.
This one was SO simple, can't believe I didn't think of it for so long. I bought a TIE HOOKS at Bed Bath and Beyond and spray-primered, then spray-painted them white! Duh, right?! Tie hanger hooks, the perfect size for chunky and bigger necklaces!
I'm stoked. I hung it prominently in our closet under a mirror, so convenient. (Why didn't I think of this until now, yikes!!) Our closet has a weird wall thing where some vent goes through the second floor, super annoying since the floor space would be nice!!, but perfect for hanging these. (The rest of the closet has the perfect shelving that we built--I'm overdue to post pics, but you can read about it here.) We're getting pretty close to an incredible, functional, attractive closet! (Lifelong dream!! ;) )
So, uh, yeah, spray paint is amazing. I also invested in some painter's mask things, since in the winter, spray-painting in the garage is super stinky and terrible for me, I'm sure. Come on, spring!
So are you inspired?! Doing any spray painting this weekend??!?
