I love these earrings from H&M;, and as you can see, I’ve had them for a long time. They were very tarnished. So, I grabbed my trusty Krylon paint and gave the earrings a new life. :) I’ve already had three comments from strangers about them! Have I crossed the line into the “CRAZY SPRAY PAINT LADY REALM!?!?”

I have had a DARN busy week. I am pretty much exhausted. I got a REALLY bad migraine headache that lasted for three days. What the!?!? But, I am really excited to go on Good Things Utah, and more so to show you the projects I have been working on. I’m pretty pumped. Don’t forget to watch the show tomorrow morning at 10am (on ABC). If you are not in Utah, don’t worry, I will post a link for you to see.

Wish me luck and send me positive vibes. Lack of sleep makes me cranky, but it’s all worth it for fun projects!!!

    Earings look great!!!!! So what if you are a crazy spray paint lady, now you are a crazy spray paint lady with super cute earings! Hope all goes well for you!

    It's so cute!!! Come on is there really sucha thing as crossing the line when you being creative? Well,….maybe there is but you didn't cross it!!!

    I'd say you just crossed the line to being SUPER resourceful! I spray cheap jewelry like that with clear paint all the time so I can wear it (metal allergy). Personally I like the new look better!

    The line is officially crossed. Totally kidding, those are SO cute! I might have to look at some of my old jewelery to see if I can spruce it up!

    ha! I started spray painting a mirror last night, and then was searching the house for more things to paint! I ended up spray painting a glass vase and my husband was just looking at me and shaking his head :)

    If you did then I am right there with you. The yellow necklace I wore on GTU last time was totally spray painted. I just couldn't find a yellow necklace! I spray paint anything that doesn't move. . .

    NOT AT ALL… I did the exact same thing weeks ago with Krylon. I took gold rose earrings same gold as yours and spray painted them Cherry Red… Spray paint is a beautiful thing. The new color on yours is much better. winks-jen

    The only thing I'd worry about is spraying the wire part that actually goes into your ear. You won't know till you wear them if that will irritate your ears or not. Some folks are sensitive to certain metal and I'm not sure what might be in metal colored spray paints and how that'd react to skin. I guess time will tell! They look great, though! :) – Karen

    I love them! I have some H&M; earrings that are starting to look a little yucky themselves!
    Brooke, drink LOTS AND LOTS of water. I get migraines when I'm stressed and I've found that dehydration contributes. I guess I get so busy, I forget to drink! :) I'm excited to see you on TV on Friday!

    So funny, I thought about it the other day and the only thing that stopped me was I would have to buy the spraypaint – didn't like the colors I had – and I thought I could buy some cheapo earrings for what I am going to spend on spraypaint. Not to mention that I thought I might be crossing the crafter/crazy line. So happy to know I'm not the only one! Ha! They look great:)

    LOVE the earrings. I agree that you should wear them on the show. And your last comment that fun projects are worth the loss of sleep–I wish I had that will power. Sleep seems to win out these days for me. And the pile of projects grows.
