The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

So last weekend I went a little nuts with the spray paint…..and it kind of bled over to this weekend.  Seriously, take the spray can out of my hand.

But First!!!  A completed project that I started:

Here is where I left off……

IMG_2868This used to be a mirror and I decided to change it.  of course I decided to change it……

I spray painted the backing wood a nice chrome and then went about my business with the gold leaf.  Say What?  Yup – gold leaf.

IMG_2876That milky white stuff in the picture above is the adhesive……let it set and then start applying your gold leaf.

IMG_2877I got myself all gilded up….on accident.  apparently there are people out there who rock at this and don’t make a serious mess……but I am NOT one of them.

IMG_2879I layered in white, grey, various shades of blue and kept working it until I was happy with the result.

IMG_2883I like how it turned out……and I put it up in the bedroom.  Turns out I must have unconsciously used that mirror…..as I have been glancing at it non-stop and being surprised that it wasn’t my reflection.

IMG_2908Like it?

IMG_2907Remember when I said I couldn’t stop spray painting stuff?

Here’s a clue…….

IMG_2884OMG make it stop (Dave says silently)
