flowers for your fingers.....before & after.....

on a recent trip to charlotte russe
with my 15 year old girl
i spotted this fabulous yellow metal ring
at the register when we were buying her some baseball tees.....

i removed the large fake pearl in the middle of it
....i love that the paint chipped
and now the middle looks sort of rusty and vintage....
well, i have loved it so much
that i went back to see if they had any other colors.....
.....all they had was black......

not being a black flower sort of girl,
i was disappointed,
but then i started thinking, .......spray paint
i'm not a very good painter,
(i leave that to my pal, who is fabulous at it :)
but this was super easy.....
first i took out all the pearls
and then.......



i love how they turned out!!
i still have a couple more,
....i'm thinking red or turquoise.....
.....i know, i went a little ring crazy!
but....they were only $4!
they could be a great gift....
or my daughter may wear them...
.....or....... i may just wear a different color every day!

so cute! i'm really impressed.

i have to think more like this when i'm shopping. with just a few simple modifications, i could turn something simple and inexpensive into something fabulous!

I know that this was posted quite a while back but I was wondering what the rings are made of? Does the store have a website? Thanks, Michele

i actually was at charlotte russe a few weeks ago and still saw some of the black ones there. I think this is the ring....

except when i bought mine, they had a pearl in the middle instead of a rhinestone (which i took out anyway) the ring is metal...so it takes the spray paint really well. hope that helps :)
