DIY Christmas Decor: Glitter Reindeer!

(Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.)

If you saw my Christmas Craft and Furniture Booth, you might recognize these cuties:

What might surprise you, though, is that they weren't always cute. I bought them like this:

I removed the bows, primed them with a coat of white spray paint, and then had tons of fun glittering them with spray glitter! I recommend Krylon Glitter Blastbecause it worked the best compared to other brands I tried. After using spray glitter, I was like:

And then I kind of did -- I attacked a mason jar, a candle jar, and several ugly wreaths. It's so much easier than using glue and glitter and the coverage is awesome! They also have a Glitter Blast Clear Sealerthat you can use to keep the glitter from coming off, but I simply used a regular clear spray sealer.

Can you believe the difference!?

They're so modern and lovely now, don't you think?

Before and After: Red Retro Side Table with General Finishes Milk Paint!

Hello, lovelies! Have I mentioned that I love General Finishes Milk Paint? Because I totally do! Every before and after project I do continues to confirm my love, and this project was no different. I started with this garage sale cutie:

I gave it a light standing just to even out some rough spots and then went to work with General Finishes Tuscan Red. A lot of times I stray away from using red because of the amount of coats you have to do to get even coverage, but as usual, GF gave me even coverage and I only painted two light coats. After this project, I even used the same red on the Vintage Vacuum Trunk.

I finished the whole piece with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat. It's so important to finish your piece with a top coat so your paint job is protected!

Isn't it so bright and beautiful now?
