DIY Gold Accents

My office ended up being filled with gold accents like this gold stool, but rather than buy a bunch of new things, I just spray painted stuff I already had. Plus I have no idea where I would be able to buy a metallic gold stool even if I wanted to! 


One weekend I rounded up some old frames, this bust bookend, and a basic wood stool from Target and took them in a backyard for a coat of metallic gold spray paint. One can covered all of these - not a bad investment for a entirely new set of accessories.


Here's the old bust given a golden treatment:


The plain black frame turned gold to hold my new black dots print. It's actually pretty hard to find a modern looking gold frame at your average store like Target, so spray painting old ones is an easy alternative:


This particular frame started out as black, was spray painted hot pink for the prints in the girls' old bedroom, and now has been given a new life as a pretty gold frame!


So next time you need to add some new color to your space, see what you already have on hand that you can transform with a spray paint before heading to the store to buy something new!
