Dream- Found Home Decor Refinished!

Good morning friends!

Pinky here today with a refinished/renewed project. 

I am always on the hunt for a bargain as I am sure you all are, when I came across this broken wall decor plaque for only .10 cents I had to grab it! I knew I could fix it up and for .10 cents what chance am I taking?

I instantly thought of the Piccolo Enamel Powders.

(Below) This was the plaque before- see the big chip on the corner.  
Which means it is no longer $14.99 but $0.10!

 Step 1. Take wire brush or small hammer and chip all edges.

Step 2. Coat edges with Piccolo Enamel Powder Adhesive.

Step 3. Sprinkle on Piccolo Enamel Powder. If you get powder where you don't want it simply brush it off.

Step 4. Heat set edges with crafting heat gun - repeat for the raised word DREAM.

Step 5. Apply coat of Glastique on DREAM to make it pop out more and to protect the piece   Adding Glastigue Gloss will extend the life of your project and add a beautiful glass-like shine!

Step 6. Allow to dry (shouldn't take long!). 

That's it! Literally a .10 project and 1 hour of your time!

This would work with a frame and other home decor as well. 

I hope you enjoyed my "find" as much as I did and bringing it back to life. 

Until next time- Pinky Hobbs

This looks amazing! What a GREAT way to renew something that would have been tossed. I think it looks better NOW than it did when it was brand new.

Nice project Pink! Vintage Copper enamel is one of my favorites and the patina it creates when Glastique is applied is amazing!
