This fall, I'm all about copper. The metallic hue is just so much warmer than gold, and more interesting than silver. I went a little crazy with some copper spray paint recently. And this is one of my resulting projects.
I began with these two decorative slabs of metal wall decor. They were purchased at HobLobs for about $7 each and were already painted a reddish maroon color. The metal slabs and the decorative design called to mind beautiful copper ceiling tiles that I've always longed for.
So late at a night, I spread out the coupon mailer all over my attic floor and put the metal pieces down. I had some copper-hued acrylic paint that I thought would do the trick. After a few minutes of getting annoyed with how the painted spread or didn't spread... I gave up, got some paper towels, and wiped the still-wet paint off. The next morning, I hit up HobLobs for copper spray paint. (It is my favorite weapon after all!)
The next day I ventured out onto my little roof. And happily sprayed away.
Beautiful! (Much better than that mucky acrylic mess.)
I hung the tiles on a little bit of wall at the top of my stairs.
Since the tiles are magnetic, I thought it wise to utilize 'em as memo boards.
Prettiest magnetic memo boards ever, riiiiight? ;)
