Charger Transformation - For the love of turquoise!

Good morning! Hope you had a great Easter Sunday! We sure did!
As you know, I'm in the process of adding more turquoise into my living room. I am challenging my self to decorate with things I all ready have. Today I share with you an easy project that makes a big change.
The power of spray paint is great! I love spray paint.
I've had this beautiful charger for over a year now. I bought it at Kirklands, one of my favorite stores. Its got to the point where its a little boring now. It needed a makeover! So it got one today!
First, I cleaned it well with a damp cloth.
Then, I spray painted a turquoise color. Spray light coats to get a better result.

Next, I watered down brown paint and used it as a glaze.
Wipe down paint after 10 seconds or so. Its a quick process.
After it dried, I used normal acrylic paint to bring out the 3-D embellishment.

This is the final result! I love it! Looks like a new charger! Its always a great idea to use things that you all ready have and give them new life! This project was free since I all ready had all the materials! Its looking great in my living room!
Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial!
