Metallics in general have had a recent revival, copper is everywhere, but it is the midas touch which is really making an impact today.
Create instant glamour and grandeur by adding some gorgeous, golden shades to furniture, accessories and smaller items in the home.
If you’re a fan of the shabby chic look there are plenty of opportunities to integrate gold into your interiors. For subtle metallic tones use Rust-Oleum Metallic Furniture Paint as a base before covering with a layer of Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish. Then, use a fine grit sandpaper to gently work into the corners to reveal the golden sheen beneath.
Our metallic gold beverage cart underwent a dramatic transformation and looks far more expensive that the £20 spent at a car boot sale.
Gold also works well on metal furniture adding depth to an otherwise mechanical piece. We bought this preloved drinks trolly back to life with Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint in Gold which looks right at home with the surrounding gold accessories.
If you’d rather keep it simple and want to slowly introduce the gold theme to your home, start with smaller projects. These 3D monogram letters make cute fridge magnets or even toys for the little ones. Again, we used Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint in Gold and the project took us just minutes.
