I was at The Great Indoors the other day and I see this wall hanging (that could also just be used as a decorative object) and I immediately thought of Mrs. Wearstler and her oh so fabulous Brass Kaleidoscope for Bergdorf’s.

So what do ya think- classy or trashy?  Could I spray paint it and make it really metallic and chic? (after all, it was only $20!)

Of course it will never look nearly as good as Kelly’s accessory, but is it salvageable dear readers or does it just look like a big porcupine?

Arteriors currently has something similar in a metal wall sculpture form.  Is it just me or are spikes in?

I like it ! Just don’t bump into it, you could poke your eye out…..

I love the idea! Besides, if it’s only $20, what’s the harm? Just a thought…. throw on some gold glitter while the paint is drying to up the glam quotient!

I definitely think the “sea urchin” thing is in… did you see Drew Barrymore’s dress @ the Golden Globes? Personally, I thought the dress was FAB!

LOVE it! Spray paint would look great… but gold/brassy tones are coming back!

Classy! Spraypaint will do the trick.

I love the last sculpture! looks like a palm frond!

I would definitely get it! I want to go to my Great Indoors to see if they have one there – I’ve always loved KW’s versions. Could you just set it on a table somewhere instead of hanging it?

Andi- yep! It can definitely be just set on a table or hung! That’s what I loved about it- it could go either way!
