Everybody on the face of this Earth knows at least one thing about me:
When I get something in my Crazy Little Head . . .
I can not get it out of it.
So I haven't set foot in a Dollar Tree in
For-Ever, till today. As I was prowling each aisle when I came across a huge stack of gold chargers and my wheels started to turn. I have two sets of chargers to my name, one is antique silver the others is rattan. And most of the time these are sufficient.
Then the Holidays roll around and I go NUTS!
Alas, I am a Tightwad.
There are worse things that I could be.
I spent $7
I came home with 6 of those gold chargers and a 98 cent can of flat fast drying black spray paint from Walmart.
And I went to work:)
This entire project took me less than one hour. I've used the 98 cent spray paint COUNTLESS times and it never disappoints! The finish is a perfectly flat black, it only takes one coat and it dries super fast!
Perfect for a NUT like me!
It took me at least four tries to get this right and I had to wipe the chalk off with a lint free cloth.
My little sprayed on finish held up well.
Most of the chargers I see in TJ Max cost that much for one.
I can think of a few more variations of this same project.
We will see what else I can do with these $1 chargers!
Blogs I love!
