a [painted] gold & wood platter

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Inspired by this gorgeous tray (via Bri Emery's Pinterest), I picked up one of my favorite mediums, gold spray paint (right up there with glitter), and went to work painting this round, wooden platter.


It's so simple to make this painted gold platter.  Using painter's tape as your guide, map out the areas you want to keep paint-free.  Then, shake that can of spray paint for 3 minutes and spray away.  Let it dry, and then peel off the tape.

I am THRILLED with the result and I could stare at it for hours!  What do you think??

till tomorrow,

Rebecca

  12. Hey, which brand/color spray paint did you use? I have a gold that just isn't that pretty and I'm thinking about doing this with a large diy project I'm working on instead of using gold leaf. Spray paint is much less likely to drive me insane! Thanks girl.
