Throwback Thursday {Crib Spring Memory Board}

Last August I revealed my daughter's AUDREY ROOM.
One of the fun DIY Projects that we did together was the metal memory board to collect all of her keepsakes...because, well, she's a bit of a hoarder. 
Did I say that out loud?

Well, the hoarding may run in the family, because I've been saving the crib spring from my kiddo's crib for a few years now. I've seen crib springs used as decor before and loved the idea, but it always seemed a little too blah or industrial for me, I guess.  And the crib spring that I had wasn't even a cool silver looking was brown. 

And that changed everything!
I was so excited about finally using the crib spring for a memory 
board once I realized it could be gold.

I used one can of Krylon Short Cuts.
This Krylon Gold Foil paint is the perfect gold spray paint. I have a hard time finding it in larger cans, for some reason. 

I just started to spray back and forth, and up and down, following the lines of the grid.
It took like 5 minutes.

And it dried in no time.

The gold finish was a bit brassy, not too shiny...just how I wanted it!

And then I got to have a bit of fun shoving all the stuff into the grid.
I found some flashy, little gold clothes pins and went to town.
