Fake it 'Till You Make It

😄Happy 🍟day Yall!!😄
So after being plagued with writers block I finally have some awesome projects for yall!! 
After a few days of bargain and Goodwill Hunting, I found some awesome deals for knockoffs I've been wanting. Usually if I find something online or out and about I take a 📷screenshot /picture 📷&save it for a rainy day,
which thanks to 🌀Hurricane Hermine🌀
I got inspired! 

🍍1.Pineapple Decor 🍍
✋Don't start yall, ✋  
I found this online a while back and was DYING for one 
But then, I found this little beauty at Goodwill for $5. . .
I shall call him Fred

and I think he needed me just as much as I needed him. 
I was really considering keeping it the way it was but decided to bite the bullet and use 
(drumroll please) 
after a mild makeover of just white and gold spray paint AND gloss spray (this really makes it super shiny like a dewy Kardashian)😃 it was awesome! 

🌿2. Succulents 🌿
OMG. . . . Even the word alone just makes me relaxed and chill 
Succulents are seriously THE most low maintenance plant. . . and what's more low maintenance than a low maintenance plant? 
Especially for someone who has a black thumb like myself. . . fake plants are
tha bomb dot com. 
But honestly yall, even the fake ones are pretty pricey. . . even at ☉Wal*Mart ☉they are STARTING at $5 
However, I lucked out and found them at Family Dollar for 
ONLY $1 EACH!!!!!!!
I seriously had to grab a full tray and head to check out at this point. 
I did the similar spray paint like the pineapple with white and a nice gold dip, which took tape and patience.

I have seen these everywhere I go, these amazing Gold Leaf Platters/Trays but so out of 💰my price range💰, until I found one at Goodwill FOREVER  $1.91. 
I actually picked it up and left it. . . but in the middle of checkout I went back and knew exactly what to do with it.

It was totally sticky and crusty. . .but after a good 🛀Dawn bubble bath🛀 it was ready for spray paint. .. .alright now I know I go overboard with the gold yall 😜

BUT the good news is if I decide to change to silver its easy peasy. I also suggest for a more vintage and worn look to use a good wood stain just to accent the grooves.

😍Soooooo, a few weeks ago I fell in love with a tshirt of hers. . . 😍
A Rare  Ramones Tee

I was not about to dish out that much dough for a tshirt, so I took to the internet and yall 
I am seriously no joke when it comes to searching for products on the internet. 
I finally found one ALMOST IDENTICAL from
💀Hot Topic💀
Hot Topic Ramones Tee $16.40
All it was missing was the yellow background, 
So I pulled out some fabric paint and a brush and was finished in 10 minutes. 
I was worried it would dry hard or flaky, but it worked out perfect, and no fading after washing :o)
