I think the most rewarding decorating comes from transforming something you already have into something new and wonderful. It’s cheap or free and fun to see the transformation. A lot of this will be happening in my son’s room redo. It seems I am redoing the décor before I am redoing the room. The décor is the easy and fun part. Maybe I will labor with painting walls next weekend.
When my son was really young I found these country wooden blocks that spelled out his name. They have been put away for awhile and I thought new life could be brought to them with some paint.
Here’s what they looked like before.
I sprayed a couple of coats of Krylon aluminum paint on them.
Bling bling bling!!! Not the look I was going for at all, but a little black glaze would tone them down and make them just right.
I made my own black glaze with some craft acrylic paint and glaze mix. I generously painted the blocks and then wiped the glaze off with a paper towel.
I love them. Don’t they look like metal blocks now?
I will show you another transformation soon.
