Ashley from The Handmade Home needed a desk for her family’s studio that “fit nicely, stayed organized, held a ton of stuff and had awesome style.” She found an iron and glass desk from Pottery Barn that met some of her requirements but still fell short. Ashley took matters into her own hands (and those of a welder friend) to create a larger, more modern, GOLD desk that definitely has the awesome style she craved!

DIY Gold Bird Art

This morning I shared a DIY pinboard created by Shauna at Satori Design for Living. If you loved that touch of gold she added to her frame, here’s another gilding project from Shauna that brings on the glitz. Shauna was inspired by a tray featuring a silver leafed bird motif to create framed art with a similar look. All she did was print an image from the computer, trace it onto specialty paper, and paint it in with the gilding. I love that you could use this technique with any design you like to create fab seasonal art – leaves, pinecones, antlers… The possibilities are endless!

Gold Leaf Bird Art

Naomi of Mrs. Fancee fell in love with gold leaf bird art she saw online… and then fell quickly out thanks to the $300 price tag. Naomi was determined to make her own version using gold leaf paint. She choose a similar background paper to that of her inspiration but chose a white frame for a lighter look. Naomi says, “This was a super easy project with a beautiful result!”

Gold Leaf Nightstand

Mari from Crab + Fish wanted a gilded bedside table for her master bedroom and realized she already owned a nightstand with a very similar shape to one she’d been admiring from Urban Outfitters. With some gold leaf, Mari transformed the childhood furniture into one she can now love as an adult. How glam is this?
