I was trying to be funny with the title of this post. I think it would be funnier if our last name began with a B instead of an R. Get it, B flat, but since this is about the letter R, I titled it R flat. OK, I guess it's not so funny if I have to explain it to you. But now you know how my mind works.
All the way back in November I painted this letter R, as mentioned in this post for my living room gallery wall. I used flat black spray paint. And although I liked it much better than the original gold color, over time it seemed, well, kind of flat. There wasn't really any dimension to the color.
So I decided to spray paint over it lightly with some Oil Rubbed Bronze. I used ORB for my quick and easy mailbox upgrade and loved it, so I thought I'd give it a try here too. Now the letter has a bit of a shimmer to it which really picks up on the texture. It's not a huge difference, but it's enough to make me happy.
