I didn't love the very dull gold color, so I thought I would try gold leaf on it, a la Miss Mustard Seed, but when I went to Michael's for supplies I found this Glorious Gold Metallic Paint and decided to give that a whirl instead. I think it turned out really well. Not as fancy as gold leaf, but it suits me just fine and was a whole lot less expense and effort. This pic really shows the beautiful color I got with the paint:
Ooooh, shiny! I think the results are pretty awesome. And in honor of Halloween I added a little artwork.
I'm excited to play around with this as part of my dining room decor. I see endless possibilities!
Happy Halloween and Happy Met Monday! May your trick-or-treaters leave behind all your favorites in the bottom of the bowl!
