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?

With the emergence of sites like MySpace, Facebook and Twitter, there is no question that there is value in the vast amounts of information on people that these platforms have been able to collect; however, there has been no clear monetization strategy beyond bringing in advertising revenue. followers
