I was going to say go from dark to light.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!! I'm so excited that I inspired someone to do the same thing! YAY!!

I bet your bike shines in the sun like no other!  What a eye-catcher Smiley

This is so super cute! I would love to have a bike like that! But I can imagine how long it took you, I don't know if I had the patience!  Shocked

I'm so excited that I inspired someone to do the same thing! YAY!!

I sure do hope you meant that, because I just couldn't resist... I went from this:

To this!

In case everyone hasn't already expressed this enough, thank you so much for the fabulous inspiration! I'd read tons of bike repainting tutorials before, but all the sanding and priming jargon really made me nervous. Your idea turned a terrible week around, big time! I ride my bike to work almost every day, and now I can't wait to be seen on it.

In your honor, I was hoping to name her Nessie (from Wicked, too), that way Elfaba will have a sparkly sister in a distant corner of the world. Thanks again for the *wicked* cool idea!

WOW! It looks amazing! I'm so excited my bike has a new sister! LOL.  Great job!! You got yours done a lot faster than I got mine.  I kept stopping because all the shaking was hurting my wrist.  Again, great job!

Awesome! I wonder if you could use spray adhesive? The stuff thats in a can like spray paint.

I wish I had a bike, and the Hubs was cool enough to buy me glitter!

Open to personal swaps, especially for fiber or spinning related tools!

you have a husband that buys you glitter? I have a husband who "puts away" (aka throws away) my glitter. You're bike is awesome, and I'm jealous of it.  Good job!

Amazing bike! I haven't wanted to mess with the paint on my '72 Schwinn trike, but this is making me reconsider!  Grin
