DIY: Copper Paint

Nu skal man jo passe på med, hvad man udtaler sig om med ordet nytårsforsæt – og især når man siger det højt (eller i dette tilfælde skriver) til rigtig mange mennesker – men i det nye år kunne jeg virkelig godt tænke mig at gøre mere ud af små DIY-projekter, som jeg forhåbentlig kan glæde jer med her. Og nej, jeg hverken hækler, folder origami, snedkererer eller på anden måde udtrykker mig kreativt på et højt plan, så fokus vil være på små ting, hvor alle kan være med.

I dag skal det handle om kobber. Materialet som tog indretningsverdenen med storm i 2013. Blev du ikke overbevist? Eller er du ikke klar til at ofre større summer på et materiale, som du ikke er sikker på holder for dig i det lange løb, så kan du nemt og billigt prøve det af med kobberfarvet spraymaling.

Kobberfarvet spraymaling fås både i en blank og en mat udgave. Jeg har købt min i Silvan og valgt den matte version til dels at forvandle en gammel klinke, der nu kan fungere som udstillingspodium (eller bordskåner?) og dels en lille glasvase, hvor jeg dækkede af med malertape, inden det blev spraymalet.

I always think you should be careful about the word New Year’s Resolution – and especially when you say it out loud (or in this case write) to great many people – but in the new year I would really like to do more small DIY projects that you can hopefully look forward to here . And no, I do not do crocheting, origami folding, carpeting or otherwise express myself creatively at a high level, so the focus will be on small stuff, where everyone can participate.

Today it is about copper. The material took the interior world by storm in 2013. Were you not convinced? Or are you not ready to sacrifice larger amounts on a material which you are not sure will do it for you in the long run, then you can easily and inexpensively test it with copper coloured spray paint.

Copper spray is available in both a glossy and a matte version. I chose the matte version to transform an old tile, which can now serve as exhibition podium (or maybe a trivet?). I also used it on a small glass vase, which I covered with masking tape before it was spray painted.

    As you mentioned, I really wasn’t convinced about copper myself but this matte version is too fab! I’ll definitely try it 🙂

    The result is really great. Which spray paint did you use? I recently bought one but did not like the result at all – it was basically a boring brown.

      Ufortunately I can’t find the exact one online, but it has a copper coloured lid in almost the right colour – and is is a matte version.
