Bling a Ding Ding Ding

Helllooooo Friends! Oh my how time flies, did you know it is already September???  For real 
If you follow me on FACEBOOK you might have heard how my laptop crashed. It was sad. I don't have it back yet (still waiting to see if it can be fixed or if a new laptop is in my future.)  In the meantime I am stealing moments on my daughter's computer and crafting up a storm!

While I was thrifting I picked up this cute little spice rack. I paid a quarter for! I ♥ thrifting!
 

 I didn't really have anything in mind, I just knew I would find a use for it. My daughter asked me if she could have it and if I would paint it turquoise. I agreed. The next thing she asked made my heart ♥ happy! She asked if I could "bling it up." My girl is not a blingy, sparkly kind of girl. I was a little surprised, but I pulled out my big bucket of bling, thanked God that she really is my daughter :) and got to work!  

(FYI-I bought this during a half off sale, I don't buy anything full price!)

First I sanded the spice rack, then gave it a good coat of primer.
 

 Next I spray painted it turquoise.  My daughter wanted it a little more"turquoisey" so I did another coat with craft paint. 

 
Once I had it the color she wanted I started blinging it up. I hand glued each and every bling on there. It was little tedious but I love the end result!


Bling a ding ding ding!!!!!

I don't know if you can see all of the sparkly bling very good in this picture but in person it is super cute. So are you wondering what my daughter was going to do with her blinged out spice rack?


 
Ta Da!!
 
A great place to store nail polishI need to make me one now! :)
 
This was just the first of several items that the "bling bucket" is going to be featured in!  I bet you can't wait for me to say bling a hundred more times! :)
