I bought these super cute raw bangles from a gorgeous little shop off Seminyak Square, Bali. I decided that I didn’t love the dark, natural wood look it had going on, so I decided to lighten them up a little, pastel shabby-chic style!
Acrylic paint (I used white, purple, red and grey)
Spray can of satin varnish
Step 1. First I primed the bangles with two coats of white acrylic paint.
Step 2. Next I mixed up my paint colours with white to lighten them up and give them pastel shades, and painted two layers onto each bangle.
Step 3. Once they were dry I took some very fine sand paper and lightly sanded down the edges, until I was happy with the shabby chic feel.
Step 4. To finish off I sprayed the bangles with a clear satin varnish. Then let them dry as your varnish directs and enjoy!
Let me know if you decide to give any of your jewellery a new life.
Have you done anything similar to this before?
How did it turn out?
Thanks for stopping by.
