I found this beat down vintage scale at the thrift store for $8 and thought it could use some snazzing up...
I had my boyfriend scrape off the nasty green plastic from the top while I:
-made a template out of sturdy glittery vinyl ($8 for 1/2 a yard)
-popped off the silver part and removed the dial
-spraypainted the sides of the dial and the sides of the scale ($3 for spraypaint)
-took some tinfoil off of my leftovers in the fridge and covered the top of the dial (made for a cool, textured metallic look!)
-slathered Aleene's tacky glue to the top of the scale and attached the vinyl
After letting the glue and vinyl adhere together overnight, I trimmed down the sides of my vinyl, glued em in place and ended up with my new fabulous scale!
I was stoked at how perfect it came out! Super cheap and easy little project!
