Every month Brynn, Alyssa & I team up for a friendly DIY challenge in which we pick a theme and whip up an artsy endeavor for under $25. With June's theme being Nautical, my mind immediately went to days spent on the lake, soaking in the sunshine with nothing but a swimsuit & sunglasses on.
I've been swooning over sunglasses like these and these, but they're so expensive. (Side note: Who can afford $300+ sunglasses and what do I need to do to become like you?) Instead of dropping that kind of money, I channeled my inner sailor, was resourceful, and created my own metallic version that was significantly cheaper and just as fun.
Martha Stewart's Liquid Gilding paint in gold, which I love for crafts because it stays on any surface like a champ and is super easy to work with.
Now all I need is a boat...
Be sure to check out Alyssa's DIY here and Brynn's here - they're my favorites & always so creative.
