I mentioned in my post on Friday that I wanted to spray paint the trophies that our son has earned from playing sports during his childhood years. I decided to go with an off white-color.
I am in love with these things now. Here's the transformation.
I owe it all to Jennifer Rizzo and all the other pinners out there who have painted their trophies before me. I am thinking of how these can be used in my home: tablescapes, sitting around the bar, putting some up in my craft room... They kind of remind me of the statues at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas LOL.
Some of the nuts and bolts were loose so I needed the wrench to tighten them up. The name plates came off pretty easily. After I removed one, I used it to help remove the others. Had to be careful though because the name plates had sharp edges. If you do this, you may want to wear goggles to protect your eyes.
This unique trophy was also in the trophy box.
I unscrewed the soccer ball ornament and put it on this mirror I cherish from my childhood home. The mirror, which hangs in our guest room, originally had an eagle on it (as most things did in my parents' home). I removed the gaudy eagle long ago and had been keeping my eye out for some thing to replace it.

So I spray painted it a gold metallic color and it fit perfectly! It reminds me of Danny's 16 year career playing soccer.
I'm ecstatic with my transformed trophies!
