Sticky Style
If you know me, or have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know this: I like things easy.  Easy like Sunday morning.  Give me a project that requires one coat of spray paint and I’m a happy camper.  Give me a project that requires less than that?  Now you’re just being crazy!
But that’s what I came up with when I was recently asked to try out some of the new products from Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape.  Have you seen this stuff?  It’s not your grandpa’s roll of silver duct tape, that’s for darn sure. 

So many fun designs, it basically does all the work of a makeover for you.  For instance, I went to my local Goodwill and found these beauties:
$1.99!?!  Tell me that’s not ridiculous.  That thing is a total piece of crap.  The checkout guy thought it “looked like ivory.” The checkout guy was insane.
(The Starlet one is pretty rad, though.) 
But, with just a quick rip, tear, and sticky, stick, stick, and look what I have here!
Pretty cool, I think! 
And while I was at the Goodwill, I also picked up these boring things:
Snoozefest alert.
But not anymore!
I was planning to keep them in my closet for jewelry storage, but I like them so much I think I’m going to put them on my desk so I can see them all the time. 
 After that I went a little zany and ran around the house looking for more things that needed some Scotch Duct Tape flair.  I decided my over-the-door-mirror could benefit from some girliness.
The corners were easier than I’d hoped. I just overlapped the tape then pulled it it back at an angle and cut.

I hope you enjoyed my little projects! There’s a million and a half fun duct tape projects out there from quick and simple to downright jaw-dropping.
