I’m no longer asked for my ID when I buy spray paint. This is when I first knew I was an adult. But now, I’ll be 24 this week and I still can’t rent a car without paying exorbitant fees for being “under age”, disgrace.
Onto the point. I want to share a a chance meeting of two objects in my house, and as they say, Oh it is love.
Orange Foo Dog, I like you, but you just weren’t working. I tried, I tried really hard, but in the end, you needed someone else…
Meet your new lovah, Krylon Silver Foil Metallic. This is seriously my all time favorite silver spray paint. It looks oh so real and coats ever so gently in only one coat. Seriously, one coat does the job. It doesn’t make that loud chhhhhhhh sound when you spray it either, but it sounds like the flapping of angel wings. I would NOT kid about this. Here is a link to the Krylon website there’s plenty of other colors to choose from.
It’s so shiny, and looks like real metal. I can’t say enough good things about this. I even used it on my cabinet hardware and it has held up really well. It doesn’t scratch easily, and I’ve been wanting to try it on my doorknobs and hinges, but let’s not get ahead of myself.
I wasn’t crazy about my bookshelves, I guess I wanted a more cohesive color story and the orange just wasn’t ME. So here they are! All shiny and new.
Yeah, put your sunglasses on, its shiny.
I wanted to compare it with a silver seashell I bought at target. This is just the silver foil color, but I wonder how different the chrome option would look.
I had this failed project laying around so I silver’d it up too. Not much to say about what I did to it, I’m embarrassed honestly.
It’s now hiding living in the bookshelf. I’ve made this rule that the bookcase cannot have the same arrangements for more than a week. So far so good!
It’s progressing with a little help from spray paint!
