I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve had a tiny little obsession for anything gold. I have been incorporating it into my living space and my DIY projects. I even bought a set of gold flatware. Thankfully, I’m not the only one. Places like Pinterest, blogs and all of my favorite decor magazines are overflowing with gold-inspired goodies. Folks are using fabric, sharpies and paint to add a little bling to their home and accessories. Today, I wanted to share eight of my favorite DIY projects that use gold to take an object from ordinary to extraordinary!

1. Gold Leaf Succulent Pots

Miss Renaissance took plain terra cotta pots and added some paint and gold leaf to create these custom and colorful pots for her succulents.

2. Gold Magnetic Letters

This is a project I recently did on my blog, Inspired by Charm. With a quick coat of gold spray paint, brightly colored plastic letters become stylish bling for the refrigerator.

Over on Design Mom, brightly colored pieces of fabric were turned into napkins. Then with a little gold fabric paint, they were given a whole lot of pizzazz!

4. Gold Dot Vase

Don’t we all have a collection of clear glass vases at home? Hi Sugarplum is putting hers back into action with some gold paint and a fun polka dot pattern.

5. Gold-Dipped Milk Jars

Speaking of vases, check out these adorable gold-dipped milk jars from Style Me Pretty. They look too perfect bunched up and lined down the center of this party table.

6. Gold-Dipped Glassware

And while we’re dipping jars, we might as well dip some glassware, too! I’m loving these gold-bottomed champagne flutes from HonestlyWTF. So glamorous!

7. Wood Colorblock Candle Holders

Back over on Inspired by Charm, I used a simple 4×4 board and some paint to create white and gold candle holders.

8. Gold Accents Barstools

Boring barstools no more! Honey Bear Lane painted her barstools magenta and then dipped them in gold. Talk about awesome. I’ll take a set of these, please.

What do you think of these fun projects? If you weren’t already obsessed with gold before, I bet you are now. So I’m curious, how do you plan on embracing gold in your space?
