#2 ~ Get your spray paint ready, follow manufacturer’s instructions, we chose gold for this project but any color will work. If your going with any metallics, we HIGHLY recommend using Rust-oleum Metallic, nothing gets a better gold than this brand!!

#3 ~ Paint your cup, per manufacturer instructions. Let dry in between coats. This paint is dry to the touch in under 15 minutes, which made it super easy to get the cups painted and set out to totally dry.

***We do NOT recommend spray painting indoors, please note this was staged strictly for photographs***

This is how our cups looked after they got their gold paint. You can leave them gold (skip to step # 6 ) OR you can add a coat of glitter!!

This is the glitter we used, did we mention we LOVE this brand for our DIY projects?

Now you’ve got to seal your paint job, this is the clear coat we used.

#6 ~ Prepare clear coat per manufacturer instructions, PRIOR to sealing your cup ensure it is COMPLETELY dried. When spraying the clear coat, use even, long passes to ensure the entire surface is coated.  We used an extra coat on the glitter cup, to ensure it stays sealed. We also suggest you make sure your project is  ENTIRELY dry before handling!

We love this bright pop of white shift dress, don’t you??  With the intricate beading around the neckline, to the blue strands woven in the white fabric, this pretty dress was a must have for spring! With our gloomy weather this week in Dallas, this bright white was a welcome sight!!

The start of spring means pretty pastels, warmer weather, and of course… Derby Days!! Dressing for the Derby is always so fun, and of course, the bigger the hat the better your luck! We instantly fell for this pretty seersucker dress, with the ruffled straps and perfect pink hue. We kept our hat simple this year, and completed the look with classic pearls.

 

Tag us on Pinterest and Instagram and show us your favorite Derby look with #DerbyDays !!
