Today, I have a super easy project to share. Remember that hourglass sitting on my newly organized desk?
It didn't look quite like that when I bought it.
Here she is in her plain straight off the Home Goods shelf glory. I wanted to bring both silver and gold into the office space, so we decided to spruce her up a bit.
I used some painters tape to block off a small section in the center of the hourglass.
Then I just used a small art brush to apply a couple coats of Martha Stewart's "Golden Pearl" metallic paint.
I pulled the tape off before it was totally dry to avoid the paint peeling off with the tape.
Just a small little detail to give her a bit more character.
Anyone else "enhancing" their off-the-shelf- finds? What's your favorite upcycled project in your home?
