$6.24 DIY Project

During a recent visit my mum asked if she could have the horse pictured above.  Her reason:  Because I love horses.  I said no.

I happened upon these bookends at Value Village.  I immediately knew what to do with them.

First I painted them black.  It doesn't look black in the photo due to the sun (the sectional is black also).

I did a touch up on the black coat.

Then gently ran my brush, with silver paint, over the horses head and necks.

I screwed up at one point so I had to start over (just the section).

Here is the final result.  It could use a coat of matte varnish or polyurethane but my supplies are packed (moving out West).

Mum just arrived for a visit and she is very excited about her new bookends!

L'oréal Revitalift Miracle Blur.

This stuff is magical..... It's photoshop in a primer. I have no idea how this works; just know that it does!

The before and after photos I took did it no justice, so I've left them out.

You'll just have to trust me on this!

This was purchased with my own money, and this review contains my opinions.

Facial cleansing wipes that even remove eye makeup.

Just as good as the expensive ones.

Get'em at Dollarama.
