I knew immediately when I thought about Elsa’s new bedroom that I wanted to use gold. It’s becoming more popular with interiors & makes a real impact.
My initial idea was to include gold in a feature wall, however I decided against that in the end & made up my mind to just use it with accessories to give a ‘pop’ of colour.
That’s where the spray paint came in to use & its safe to say i’m now a complete convert!
After looking online, I found the cheapest place for spray paint was good old Wilko’s Enamel gold spray paint at £3.95 per can. I used two of these & they do go a long way. These come in a variety of colours & finishes.
Here’s my guide on the best way to apply –
- Give the item to be sprayed a good clean with soap & water to remove any dust or residue
- If needed, lightly sand to remove any rust or old paint
- Remove or masking tape any bits that aren’t to be sprayed
- Place the item in a well ventilated area, preferably outdoors with little wind
- Make sure to protect the ground with newspaper or cardboard
- Shake the can well before use
- Begin spraying with even coats making sure to keep the can moving – remember that it’s better to do it thinly with more coats than thickly due to drips & streaks
- Keep the can approx 20-30cm away from the object, if you get too close it’ll cause the paint to run
- Once dry, repeat the spraying again with time between coats until desired finish is achieved
Et voila – a super easy transformation!
Here are the bits I sprayed & this can work on pretty much everything. A cheap & easy transformation.
