*Dream in Glitter Green*

painting a wooden sign

My sister recently bought a “Dream” wooden sign from a home products store. It is really cute, but displaying it with just the wood, was not having it for me. I told her we would give it a makeover. I had a sample paint jar that I bought just for projects such as this. Did you know that paint stores sell the paint that turned out wrong for cheap? I got this gorgeous lime green color for only 50 cents! Make sure you scope it out next time you are there. We started by painting the sign and then used a glitter spray paint over the lime green.

Already looks better

I sprayed the sign with a very light coat of the glitter

I used Krylon Glitter Blast in Silver for the color

To prevent fallout from glitter, use a spray paint sealer. I used Rust-oleum crystal clear enamel
