DIY: Gold Accents

Hi Guys!

When I was younger, I used to dislike gold so much, especially jewellery, and I never quite understood the craze. As I grew older, this dislike became a mild obsession and passion and I try to incorporate the colour into everything around me. Gold accents here and there make everything a bit shinier and nicer, and there's also that touch of posh it gives to everything.

I recently stumbled on The Velvet Row blog and I've been enjoying her posts so much. She put up a DIY post that I've been itching to try, thanks to my love of gold accents and thanks to her, I present to you my very first ever DIY post.
To achieve this, you don't need to spend all your money or break a bank. If you're in Nigeria, all you need is N660 for a can of 18kt spray paint and the objects you want to use and you're ready to go.

You'll need:
- A can of 18k gold spray paint (N660 at Game, The Palms)
- The objects you want to spray, in this case, a trinket box, flower vase and 2 ceramic plates.
- Old Newspapers to work on

1. Lay out the newspapers on the floor and place what you're working with on top of them. The  newspapers will prevent you from making a mess.

2. Starting with the first one, and holding your spray can at least a feet away, spray the paint evenly all over and continue to do this until you've covered the entire area.

3. When you're done spraying everything, leave to dry for about 5-10minutes. Easy as 1,2,3.

4. Use as you please :)

The spray paint comes in many yummy colours and shades...greens, pinks, blues, yellows...and the coloured ones are even cheaper at about N250 or so. 

I hope you guys liked this post. If you're going to give it a try, please let me know, I'd love to see how yours turns out.

Have a lovely week.
