A friend of mine gave me 2 plain white latte mugs and I wanted to "fancy" them up a bit.
My idea came from these two pins.
I love the look of the gold and the Hey Ya'll statement,
but I didn't want the hassle of the glitter
even though I do love glitter.
I got my supplies:
mugs, dishwasher proof gold paint, a paint brush
and painter's tape.
the hardest thing about this project was trying to
wrap the tape evenly around the mugs.
I needed 2 coats of paint and maybe could have even added a third.
I let my paint dry for about 30 minutes between coats.
I got out my trusty black sharpie for the writing and then baked my mugs so they would be dishwasher safe.
I let the mugs dry for an hour before putting into the oven
and then preheated the oven at 350 degrees.
I let the mugs "bake" for 30 min,
turned off the oven and let the mugs cool down.
I let them sit for 3 days before using.
I think my two mugs turned out pretty cute and the cost was minimal.
