Gold Spray Painted Pencil Holders

gold spray painted pencil cupsI have been having spray painting commitment issues.  Remember my little bird figurine that I was going to spray paint?  He still looks the exact same.  To my credit, I did go to a store.  After much deliberation and fruit snack bribes, I decided on a spray paint color for my bird figurine.  I know the suspense is killing you.  Ok fine, it was like a lime green color.  When I went to spray it on though, the nozzle was clogged.  I took it as a sign.  My bird figurine is destined to be a different color.  Although I admit to having had some commitment issues associated with spray paint in the past, I knew just what color I wanted to spay paint these pencil holder cups when I saw them at a yard sale.  The organizer cups would look great with a gold makeover.
