The Gold Hand

Remember this guy? You can read about him here

Although I think he is pretty perfect, he did have one flaw that really bugged me. It bothered me so much I could almost not stand to look in his direction. The sight of it made me shudder. Do you see it? His wrist/arm is really really gross looking. It's just dirty and no amount of sanding or scrubbing could change it. 

{even Lola is perturbed about it} 
Enter gold spray paint. And Casey's DIY rule #34: what you can't clean, you can spray paint.

I sanded the wood and sprayed two coats of primer. I think I ended up doing four coats of gold spray paint. I used Krylon Metallic paint in gold. The textured look is not something that I tried to achieve. But it has grown on me and now I like it.

A bottle of spray paint really makes a world of difference in my opinion. Now Handy and I can be friends again and all is right in the world.
