Home Decor and Craft Projects Updated to Gold

November 13, 2012 by 9 Comments

I’m seeing gold everywhere!  Using Gold Gilding/Gold Leaf is totally fun and bright and merry!  I’m loving the metallic touches.  Gold Leaf is the ‘One Item‘ in the series I’m doing this month.  Listed at the end of this post are other blogs participating in this series.   I love transitioning holiday decor into the next season.  These almonds were on my Simplistically Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape.  I changed them up a bit by applying Gold Leafing and adding a few gold ornaments to my table.  Here are the steps for adding Gold Leaf and some awesome home decor and craft projects using Gold Leaf!

This was so SIMPLE…I used Martha’s Gold, Liquid Leaf!

After seeing this platinum and gold vertical striped chest, I’m thinking I may add a gold stripe to my dresser.  Check out these other home decor and craft projects using Gold Leaf or Gold Gilding!  So fun!
