Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 23

Time for Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 23.  It’s the LOVE sign I picked up just last week.  Did you see my Thrift Share Thursday no 35.  I paid 99 cents for this sign.  Cha ching.  For less than $1 dollar I got this awesome sign.  I’m pretty proud of myself for seeing the potential.  You can agree or disagree in comments below but I think this sign was the most amazing deal.  It might get other changes down the line.  But here is it’s new first look that took less than an hour to transform.  I love how quick and easy spray painting a project is.  I keep a little stock of spray paints in my junk craft room.  Always have some silver & gold on stock.  They are my go to metal colors.  I am also a huge fan of mixing metals.  I like they way they look used together.

I used Krylon brushed metallic Satin caramel latte. It took about 4 coats to truly cover up the sign.  I let it dry about 10 minutes between each coat.  So at the most this project was done within an hour.  I then added a frame bracket to the back of the sign for easy hanging.  You can get these at the dollar store.  You know how I love me some dollar store supplies.


It’s hanging in the bedroom for now.  Not sure I’ll keep it there but loving it against the black wall.



Stay tunned…xoxo Arod
