I used the exact method and supplies I used for the T.V. frame. I never would have thought to make him silver, but Sara mentioned it and I realized what a great idea it was! Thanks Sara!
In other news, the plant in my dining room is turning icky colors and the leaves are falling off at an alarming rate.
Any idea what could be wrong with it? The soil was dry, so it's not overwatered, but I just watered it Saturday, so it's not underwatered... Fertilizer maybe? I've had it since last September (I think) and I've never fertilized it, do house plants need fertilizer?
