Truth be told: I didn’t get much crafty time today…blaming it on cleaning the shed, running errands, and trying out a new recipe for supper (Mexican Pepper Casserole = not bad, not great).
But I did finish up a glitter project.
When I go to thrift stores, I head straight to the homegoods department because I always see a repurpose in dishes to break for mosiacs or candlesticks that merely need an update with a magical can of spraypaint. Lately it’s been wood that catches my eye: mod shapes that would great painted, mosiac-ed, or glittered.
This piece is just that: an outdated, stained centerpiece. Wish I had taken a picture of it before I reworked it. But thanks to Martha Stewart’s fine glitter, it has a new, bright life.
Step two: Start the glitter….and Martha Stewart does glitter best.
Step three: Touch up the piece after it had dried from step two.
Step four: Spray on some clear poly to make the glitter stay (again, after it had dried from step three).
Lucky me….my local thrift stores always have wood to repurpose. Sometimes I have to restrain myself. There’s a glittered Lazy Susan coming up in a few days (pink at that!!)
