{ditto} DIY:: Going for GOLD.

There’s a party goin’ on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you!
Who doesn’t love a little Cool and the Gang every now and then?
So, are you wondering who’s throwing the party?
Once a month ten very different bloggers are hosting a challenge for us to recreate in our own homes.
Every one of the challenges will be a project or design element inspired
 by a haute couture design.

This month the challenge was to GO FOR THE GOLD, 
and this was our inspiration picture.

I honestly don’t even really understand what haute couture is,
 but my guess is that it’s FANCY.
I looked around my house trying to come up with a spot that could use a little glitz, 
and I decided Lydia’s room was gonna be my guinea pig.
If anybody in our crew leans toward fancy, it’s her, for sure.

Can you spy my little ode to Gold in the picture below….
I’ll give you a’s up top!
I’m so glad I decided to take on the challenge.  It was an easy one!
The bird was purchased years ago at Michael’s on clearance.
It was painted a chippy white, and honestly, it was kind of boring and unnoticed.
{Insert GOLD spray paint from Lowe’s.}

WOW.  What a difference it made.  I swear the bird is happier now.
Just love me enough not to let me go and spray EVERYTHING gold now.
I’ve got a whole can of paint left, so stop me if I go overboard!!

Be sure to check out all the other projects that have been linked up!
Here are the bloggers who have joined forces to bring us this {ditto} DIY party each month.
