Give Your Old Brass Some Sass!

Give Your Old Brass Some Sass!

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!

You Will Need...

  • Spray Paint
  • A brass piece that has lots of potential
Just a Tip!


  • Step 1: Scour your mom or grandma's house (or the thrift shop) and find an awesome brassy beauty needing a bit of spray paint love
  • Step 2: Spray paint the piece in a white or off-white colour; apply at least 2 even coats and let stand to dry
  • Step 3: Admire your handiwork! You've upcycled beautiful home decor!
