I have to tell you a funny story before getting into my project. When I first started finding all of these wonderful DIY home decor blogs, I fell in love. I thought all the creativity that I thought was out of my system was suddenly back again. I used to only sew children’s clothing or crochet. But now, I had people in blogland that loved to DIY home decor. Ahh..I was happy.
When I first heard the term ORB, I thought of a big glass egg shaped thing. Had no idea that oil rubbed bronze was all the rage. How excited I was to find out that I was already using those colors in my home, just in ready made items. So when I saw there was a spray paint in this color, I immediately went out to find it. I went to Walmart and they must have just restocked their spray paint, because there it was, among all sorts of beautiful colors. I was with my father, when I started jumping up and down and clapping my hands, he thought I had lost it. I purchased 8 different colors that day. I was so excited!! I felt like I belonged to a secret society!! HA!
Anyway, to my project. I found this at a local thrift store for $3.
I took off the hooks at the bottom, sanded, taped her up and spray painted her HW ( thats secret society talk for Heirloom White, Shhh dont tell!!):
Then I took the flowers I made in this post and used 5 to make magnets. Magnets are from Dollar Tree:
Hot glue, press and hold:
Viola! 5 easy peazy magnets:
And now they all hang out together on the wall next to my sliding glass door. I’m not sure if I should put something over the front of the slots to make it look prettier and I may be adding some small hooks to the bottom for keys. But for now, here they are:
Super simple redo and I feel officially part of DIY home decor’s secret society!!
