Recently I've become obsessed with all things copper and with all the Uni shopping I have been doing lately, I've definitely been on the look out for copper accents that I can fill my Uni room with. But many a time copper items are extremley overpriced for what they are, and all though copper is a major homeware trend, there are some items that will always be in a standard boring colour. So too save time looking high and low for copper items, and to save money on buying over priced copper I decided to invest in some copper spray paint and get to DIYing.
Once you have your spray paint and the item you want to spray paint- in this case the IKEA magazine holders, the rest is pretty self explanatory- just spray away at your hearts content, until it is fully covered. I would advice to do this in a field or garden, when it's not too windy. Also try and wear clothing you don't mind ruining, just in case you happen to miss the object and spray yourself lol.
And voila! A cheap IKEA magazine holder is turned into the perfect copper home bit, in less than 3 minutes. This can pretty much be done with anything that is spray paintable, and is an easy and cheap way to be one step closer to having the perfect Pinterest inspired room.
