If You Want Something Do It Yourself: Ombre Desk Decor


I can never keep the same surroundings for too long when it comes to my desk. I like to change things up a bit so that I'm constantly inspired. When I saw this rhino decor, I knew I had to have something like it for myself. And because I couldn't find a rhino, I went with a deer instead...they're just as cool you know. Anyway I've really been into the whole ombre trend so I thought it would be perfect to apply it to this diy project.

Want one too? Here's how to do it yourself:


Just a few tips:

If you have white spray paint, I would use that instead for the first step.
If you don't, when applying the paint I found the color went on better when I sponged it rather than painted it on.
Oh and yes I know the supplies picture has red paint but I changed my mind and went with yellow...go with whatever color will make you happiest.
