I mentioned in my post on Friday that I wanted to spray paint the trophies that Danny has earned from playing sports during his childhood years. I decided to go with an off white-color because I learned while creating my Angel Transformation that white is too stark for my home decor.
I am in love with these things now. Here's the transformation.
I owe it all to Jennifer Rizzo and all the other pinners out there who have painted their trophies before me. I am thinking of how these can be used in my home: tablescapes, sitting around the bar, putting some up in my craft room... They kind of remind me of the statues at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas LOL.
This is what I used to compete my project. Some of the nuts and bolts were loose so I needed the wrench to tighten them up. The name plates came off pretty easily. After I removed one, I used it to help remove the others. Had to be careful though because the name plates had sharp edges. If you do this, you may want to wear goggles to protect your eyes.
These were also in Danny's trophy box.
Hmm...what could I do with this? My bloggy friends have taught me to recycle things.
I unscrewed the soccer ball ornament and put it on this Tell City mirror I cherish from my childhood home. The mirror, which hangs in our guest room, originally had an eagle on it (as most things did in my parents' home). I removed the gaudy eagle long ago and had been keeping my eye out for some thing to replace it.
So I spray painted it a gold metallic color and it fit perfectly! It reminds me of Danny's 16 year career playing soccer.
I have to run out and buy more spray paint so I can finish painting the glass piece and wooden base to use it on my desk! The hole where the soccer ornament was will now hold a pen! I plan on putting a photo in front of the painted glass. The glass will hold the photo in place.
On this piece I am going to remove the 1991 so it can also hold a pen. Dan can choose which pen holder he wants. I'm nice like that.
And finally, there were some of these in the box. I removed the decorations and can use them for a Mod Podge project in the future.
I will show you the last few projects in a future post! I'm ecstatic with my transformed trophies! Thank you Danny for letting me express my creativity!
