It's All About That Base (coat): Embracing The Glitter

I have a love/hate relationship with glitter; I love the look....but the mess, not so much!  I believe the last time I actually used glitter was for ornaments (here). Lately though I've been really attracted to glitter and glitter paper (spoiler alert...2015 Christmas cards), and while I was at Michael's recently I found glitter spray paint!

 We will be hosting several gatherings over the next few months and wanted to come up with a display for our self-serve beverage area.  I'm using the Marquee Love collection to spell out the word DRINKS and spray painted them with red glitter paint.

It took me an entire can of paint to realize that I really needed to base coat them first.  I love the results and the battery operated lights are really bright!  I'm probably late to the marquee letter party, but I'm here now!
