10 Stunning DIY Projects {featuring Gold}

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Do you ever wonder if we will look back on this time when gold accents are back in style and wonder, "what were we thinking?"? Will it be like how we cringe looking back at the eighties with all of the highly shiny brass? I mean, it was in style then, right?

Either way, I am all about the newest incarnation of gold being good. Just like with anything, I think it can be, and is often times, over-used; but as a simple accent, a little bit of gold can add class to a place or project. Here is a round up of my ten favorite gold projects! {Most of these came from my now-defunct Finding Friday collection of projects to share.}

I think all of these would look great in any home!
