Social Media DIY


I shared this photo on my office reveal/update a few weeks ago and wanted to share with you how easy they were to make. I say easy, because my husband did all the work for me, but honestly, they're quite simple.



I picked up these two {social media} symbols at TJMaxx a few months ago, and decided they needed to be gold.  Because I think anything gold is just fabulous. I will say even though I picked mine up awhile ago, they are still available- I saw both symbols or variations of them at TJMaxx this past weekend.


Besides my blog, a large part of my daily, 9-5 involves social media, so these symbols are more than decorations-- let's just say they're my John Deere decals.





Because of the dark red color of the hash tag, my husband said we needed a coat (turned into 2 coats) of primer, so we sprayed the silver @ sign as well to be safe. Here's the primer we used:


The primer was purchased at Lowes, and the paint was from Michaels- the brand was Design Master from Michaels. The only down side of course was the fact that this was a 3 day project due to the rainy weather and the dry time between coats, but I'm very happy with the results! I may or may not be on the lookout for an ampersand, etc. so I can accurately portray my mood at times in gold, fabulous symbols.


The paint did not dry smooth in parts as you can see, specifically on the @ sign, but I kind of like the textured, worn look. Now I want to spray paint everything in site!

What have you successfully spray painted to give new life?
