DIY Gold Furniture

Go For the (DIY) Gold Accents

If you're dreaming of gorgeous gilded furniture without the luxury price tag, why not create your own? Whether you want large metallic furnishings or simple golden accents, try going the DIY route with easy-to-use paint products. Not only will you save some money, but you'll also have control over how bright (or how subtle) the golden shades turn out. Here are a few DIY ideas:

Dip your toes into the trend by making simple golden picture frames. Wash plain wooden frames, allow them to dry, then brush on a few coats of Martha Stewart Crafts Liquid Gilding. If the frames are glossy, you may need to use a primer so that the paint stays put. A simpler option? Purchase frames that are made of unfinished wood.

Going for a statement piece? A 24-karat piece of furniture isn't exactly practical, but you can get the look of Robert Coin's gold table by sanding a standard wooden table and adding several layers of spray paint. For a bold, shiny style, try a shimmery option like Krylon Premium Metallic Spray Paint.

If you're a gold commitment phobe, invest in a simple piece like the Jonathan Adler Hera Vase ($195) or create the look yourself with Testors Enamel Paint Markers and a solid vase in your favorite shade.

I am pretty much obsessed with gold accessories right now. I really wanted a gold burl coffee table with glass top but thought perhaps that was a little too much! I will be trying out Martha's products they sound amazing!
