You know those projects you pin on Pinterest and then never get to? A few of my friends decided it would be good motivation to send each other boxes of supplies for our pins so we actually had a reason to do them.
Maria sent me the materials to make a galaxy tank (pin here!) and I was so excited to finally tackle it this weekend!
I basically followed the directions found here. It was pretty simple: bleach, rinse, paint. And then add some stars. The red paint I used was shimmery, which I think worked awesome to make it look more galaxy-like. I also used an extra wet sponge just to blend things out more.
Waiting for it to dry was the hardest part.
I love how it came out. And I love the feeling when a DIY project turns out how I hope. Not only was this a fun project, it was a great reminder that I really need to be tackling more of my Pinterest projects!
