So there’s this gumball machine that my mom let me have some while back. Very classic, red gumball machine that I absolutely loved. I’ve used it around the house and even at a few birthday parties. But I wanted to give it a fun makeover.
In my mind I wanted it in my office, gold and glamorized with a touch of glitter. So when I came across Rust-Oleum Gold Glitter Spray I did a little happy dance knowing it was going to be perfect.
I removed all the parts (glass, inside gadgets, etc) and gave my machine a bath of primer and let that dry. Then just to be safe I sprayed it down with a solid color gold in a satin finish for extra coverage. I wasn’t sure if the gold from the glitter spray paint would be enough but I think it might have been just fine:0) After that I went to town on the glitter.
How do you like it? Fun huh! Like a said a week or so ago…I’m really loving GOLD and my office is on it’s way to becoming something special just.for.me:0)
Here’s some information that you might find useful:
Rust-Oluem is not a food safe product and since I have real gumballs in my machine that I plan on eating all the time:0) I made sure to seal the inside of the machine so no spray touched it. If your still worried about it, I suggest using a WONDERFUL paint by Martha Stewart that is food and dishwasher safe…and it comes in gold:0)
I really loved this product! I know Krylon has something similar but I’ve never tried it. But what I like about this one is that when you touch it after it dries your not having a glitter fest all over your clothes and hands and face and hair:0) It pretty much stays in place. I also think the sheen is BEAUTIFUL and you really can’t capture it in a photo:0) It’s not overly glittery either, kinda grown up glitter ya know.
Looking for more of my office? Check out these curtains I got! I have a major crush on them:0)
