Thanks Anthropologie!


Last week I got shanghaied into graciously agreed to take three girls Black Friday shopping.

Now I love to shop but Black Friday has never really been my thing.

So needless to say I was a little, shall we say, reluctant... to brave the mall, but all of that changed when I walked into Anthropologie, a store that I just can't help but love.

Sprinkled over the displays that day were walnuts.  Walnuts that had been spray painted gold.

Freaking genius!

(For those of you who are new here, I love to spray paint things gold.)

So naturally I had to copy them.  (And share with you.)

Here's the tutorial:

  1. Purchase your walnuts.  This was probably the hardest part of the whole process.  I ended up ordering some on Amazon (link HERE) because I couldn't find walnuts in the shell anywhere. 
  2. Spray paint said walnuts and let dry for 15 minutes.  (I used THIS paint.)
  3. Turn the walnuts over, spray the other side, and let dry.
And that's it!  The world's easiest DIY brought to you by Anthropologie.  (And me.)

I am setting some of my walnuts out in a bowl.


Others I have glued to the tops of mason jars in which I have stored homemade granola.


Wouldn't that be a cute hostess gift?  


Way to show me the silver gold lining in black Friday, Anthropologie!

  3. Baron's Market in Rancho Bernardo has bulk in-the-shell nuts. That's where I got mine- I'm working on gold ones tonight.
