[Upcycle] Update a Trivet with Paint

I have a 2003-esque trivet that looks similar to this--
yeah, i forgot to take a "before" pic... but you get the idea, right?

This does not fit into my 2012 decor plans.  What to do?

Hit it up with some white spray paint

Liven it up with some metallic paint
i blended 2 metallic paints together to get just the right shade of mother-of-pearl silvery gold

i lightly sponged on a thin coat...

then added a little more dark silver and worked it in with a sponge...

brings out the definition of the stone beautifully.

and here it is in our bedroom shelf...which is still a work in progress. 

i need a few more pieces to complete the look.

Alright, back to reorganizing our kitchen pantry.  I have the New-Year-organization-bug, so I better run with it while it lasts.  :)

Have a good one!
