VIDEO: DIY Matte Black Accessories

I’m NOT a fan of those matte black cars I see driving on the streets of Los Angeles (I mean why would you paint your $200,000 Masarati matte black?) but I am a fan of matte back jewelry! Special shout out to GNG reader Noa for also being inspired by matte black and for sharing her inspiration with me! #SharingIsCaring

It seems like last year I was spraying everything neon (here and here), but this year it’s gonna be ALL (matte) BLACK EVERYTHING! I hope you enjoy the video and please don’t forget to subscribe to the GNG YouTube channel.

Oh and if you ever see a cool DIY inspiration pic and want to share, feel free to FB or tweet it to me. I wanna see too!!!!

  1. This is such a great idea and they look so kick-ass! It makes things look like they are made from some kind of cool rubber or resin.

    I saw a matt black sports car in the UK and someone had graffittied a little white smiley face on it as if it were a black board!

    Nice project. I always thought matte black cars were the stage before getting a shiny paint job. Oops! 🙂
