Remember when I spray painted my candelabra hot pink in February? If so you might also remember that I was already looking for something else that needed a neon makeover. After seeing some cool neon necklaces while browsing the internet I thought I could make my own. I bought two necklaces on sale at a Burlington Coat Factory store near my office. I liked the shapes and at $3 per necklace I could justify to give spray painting them a try.
The supplies I had already at hand from previous painting sessions and I followed the same procedure as I did with the candelabra, just omitting the mistake with the dark primer and using white primer in the first place. One necklace got a yellow makeover and the other one was transformed with fluorescent pink spray paint.
I have to say both necklaces came out better than expected and really brighten up my wardrobe. What's your take on the neon trend? I already had a neon phase in the 80ies but feel it is different now. Back then I liked the combination of midriff baring and neon. I've already seen cropped shirts again in magazines but this will be a trend that will not make it back into my closet.
