This star is everywhere but my frugality prevents me from paying more than $5 for one. Sooooooo, when this one showed up in the clearance bin at Home Goods (LOVE Home Goods!) for $3.99, I snagged it! It was an ok color, but it didn't stand out against my light walls.
|Here it is against my garage wall - got so excited it was warm out that |
I forgot to take the 'before' pic - oops!
Enter Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint
|This stuff sticks to everything, and can be sprayed upside down|
After a light sanding, I set it out on the lawn and gave it a couple of quick sprays:
This color is AWESOME! I thought it was like the oil rubbed bronze you see on curtain rods and such, but HELLO! this has a sparkle to it!!
I saw it under the sun, and I tried to get a close up of it…but this was the best I could do, next to my lavender monster.
SO pretty! This might be my new fav color and it literally took 5 minutes. You only have to wait a few minutes between coats and it took 3 to completely cover it.
And the grass will grow and get cut, right? Plus, I have a surprise for this patch of grass coming in the next month or so…don't worry, I'll post pics!

And now for the reveal in our bedroom; I'll apologize in advance for the lighting - we have the upstairs bedroom in a bungalow with little natural light. If you can believe it, I have 6 lights going here:
It stands out so much better now and is exactly what I envisioned when on my quest for a star on the cheap.
