How To Refresh An Oldie To A Goodie With Krylon Spray Paint
Can I tell you how excited I was for November 1st to arrive. One of my family traditions consists of putting up the Christmas Tree and the first sounds of Carols . I love the holidays and the preparation involved leading up to Christmas. My kids are just as eager as I am to decorate the home too, that this year I bought a miniature Christmas Tree. For my youngest child so that she can decorate who own space.
Today I will be showing you how to refresh and oldie to a goodie with Krylon Spray Paint. Since my decor theme changes every year it can also mean decorations can get pricey as well. Lately I have been in a mindset where I want to re-purpose things I already have to make them new again. As well over the last couple of years I have made a huge effort to even recycle decor that I have been given in order to save for larger decor pieces in my home. So I have a little confession to make, I am obsessed with Marquee signs like really obsessed. I have quite a few of them in my home more so for the holidays. When I started shopping for Christmas decor last year I went to Micheal’s to use a 50% off coupon that I had at the time.
I stumbled across a JOY Marquee and I knew instantly where I wanted it in my house. The only downfall was that even with the coupon is was still quite costly. So I decided to wait until everything went on clearance. Which was still at a time where the general population starts decorating. I finally scored my Joy Marquee for $25 down from $89. Now that was a huge steal for me. At the time the colour scheme on the marquee were your traditional green red and cream/white. Which was my colour scheme as well last year.
This year I decided to change them to Gold Silver and White. I also wanted to use my marquee sign but it didn’t match. Since I recently started working with Krylon on other projects in my home. I decided to use the Metallic Gold paint that I received to transform my sign to my liking. It took less than 10 minutes to do. I removed the bulbs and stuffed the holes with paper towel. Then I took news paper to spread out for my surface and sprayed away. The finished product looks amazing. These types of refresh projects are great ways to save money by using what you have. Not only that, they are also great projects to do with the family to get them involved. Its true when they say a coat of paint makes a big difference because I am in love with the results.
