Hey there, everyone and happy Friday! After a week of sick kids (and now I’m getting the same cold) I’m really ready for a weekend. While the boys have napped, I’ve worked several gold items into our house. Some serve a purpose and others are face lifted items we already had. Here’s one that is super useful to me:
A stump, slit cut in the side (using a hack saw), then gilded with Antique Gold Rub’n Buff.
Is now a handy recipe card holder in the kitchen. But it can also display a picture or store recent important receipts or coupons.
While I had the Rub’n Buff out, I used it on a plain white tray. Eyeballing it, I taped off a design and used a scrap of old t-shirt to buff gold over the rest.
Hello fun little tray!
I shall use you to control our remotes.
Because I couldn’t stop there, (addicting much?) I covered over the flourescent orange ends of this little timer. They boys got a few from the dentist, so one is living on the guest room bookshelves.
Odd, I’m developing an hour-glass collection. Perhaps to go along with my recently discovered owl turned doorstop group.
After my Rub’n Buff binge, I moved on to gold spray paint. Because why not? I used most of the can for another project. Rather than store the little left, I sprayed this little succulent planter:
And my perpetual calendar box.
Five rooms got a touch of gold in the past week. Midas touch, I’ve got it. Ha. What’s your latest addiction? Gilding everything in sight? Hour-glasses? Owls?
