what a waste, right?
until recently i thought, wow wouldn't it be cool to display those trophies again but this time, not with pride, but with fun colors? after seeing the soccer trophies my daughter was winning, and how she displayed them, although fun and inviting, they were still that brass color that i hated—still the same old trophies lined on every athlete's shelf, still would not look good decorated in my loft.
yeah, i'm that picky.
with my idea in tow, i headed to the nearest hardware store and purchased five bright colors of spray paint—chartreuse, fuschia pink, orange, sun yellow and of course, purple. i couldn't wait to get home and start my new project.
i was surprised at how well the paint stuck! i envisioned lots of drips and many coats of spray paint later, only to see how wrong i was. no dripping, and only two coats of paint. they turned out fabulous!
take a look!
Unfortunately, the pics don't do the bright colors justice.
