While I love brass in its original golden glory, there are some pieces that just aren’t living up to their potential. A gorgeous mama-and-babe giraffe pair was given to me, and I knew that it could be something spectacular. Using the power of spray paint, the pair was given a new life and a new look. The fomerly tarnished brass pieces are now faux-ceramic chic! It’s an upcycle that I’m very excited about!
