mini makeover ll - necklace

It is time for another mini makeover post and this time the makeover is really small, minuscule really. I had purchased this golden knotted necklace a while ago because I have a similar longer one from Urban Outfitters that I love but also wanted a shorter option. At home I really did not like the gold tone of the necklace, it was way too yellow and I never wore it. Because I liked the shape I knew a little spray paint makeover would make a difference. Remember the necklaces I spray painted yellow and neon pink last year? This time I did not want to go as bold and since I had black spray paint on hand I started to work my magic. I can't wait to wear it with striped, white or gray tees once I am able to run around without with a chunky scarf. Are you also believing in the magical powers of paint to transform things that have lost their luster? You know I am!

  1. It looks like a completely different necklace. You're so talented with spray paint, I'm afraid to even touch the stuff in case I botch whatever I'm attempting to paint! The gold color was okay, but now that it is black you'll get so much more use out of it, and it's more "you." Love these mini-makeovers!

    1. Using spray is sooo easy, I almost said even a caveman can do it. Remember the stupid Geico commercial. Just give it a try!

  2. I want one of those, too! Great result. I also like the ones you linked to - I'll do a similar one soon, I'm SURE! I have so much old cheap jewelry I don't use anymore, spraypainting it is a brilliant idea! Thanks!

    1. You should definitely try it out. All the necklaces I used were from the clearance bin and I liked the design but not the finish.

  3. Paint is a universal weapon! :) One question, do you think I could also spray paint a thin necklace, a have so many from forever21 but after three days, they turn black. But I like the trinkets.

  4. I would not have realized you could spay paint that, so many tiny nooks. Love the necklace in black, much bolder.

  5. I love how the necklace turned out. I would have chosen the same color. The black makes it look so much more elegant. I think it would look great with a statement tee shirt and boyfriend jeans.

  6. oh my goodness, it looks so much better in black! you have the instinct that I lack - or maybe fight? i often think of doing such things but doubt my ideas, this is a good example to just go for it. because, yes, the gold was good, but the black is much better. love it.

    1. I think you're just fighting it. Getting this started took me about five minutes, I had the spray paint already. Otherwise I would have not done it, I guess because I would have never bought the paint just for this one necklace ;) Does this make sense? I feel like I am not fully awake yet ;)

  7. Ooooh it’s amazing the difference a little spray paint can make! I also love that you said you would wear them with grey and stripy t’s because I think the 2 definitely go hand-in-hand. Hope you have a lovely weekend Nina!
