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This piece is just that: an outdated, stained centerpiece.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 one: Spray paint wood piece with primer.

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!!)


About lionsdaughter

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
