Pineapple Glam DIY




$5! This pineapple was only $5 at Joann's. Well, actually less once I used my coupon that was good on all items including sale items.  The pineapple was normally $24.99 or what I like to call $25.  When I picked it up I had no idea what I would do with it. But it was $5!  I have a tiki party every year so I could use it for that, or...

I could glam it up and put it in my office. I'm currently redoing my office, Did you see my Woo Hoo! Wednesday post on it? 

I had some gold glitter at home and my friend from Suddenly Surrounded by Taxidermy  had told me about this Martha Stewart product so I picked some up. 
I spray painted the pineapple gold and glittered up the top. Gold seems so glam to me and the glitter would add some fun! 
Looks so much better in gold and glitter don't you think?  My wall is a mauve-y pink but it sure doesn't look like it in this photo does it? I'm slowly adding more gold and mint to the office to off-set the mauve-y pink wall. 
Stay tuned for more office re-do glam.
