Gold Striped Jars


Happy Monday, loves! Let's start the week out with some sparkle, shall we?!

 Before I left for school, I added a tiny stripe of gold to my desk area at home.  With gold being all the rage, I just couldn't resist.  Using the same gold Martha Stewart glass paint I used for the polka dot tea cup, I painted a simple stripe of gold across the middle mason jar that holds my pencils.  After two coats of the gold paint, I baked the jar in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees to secure the paint to the jar. Viola!

Don't you love my random paint brush in the pen jar? :)
A touch of gold goes a long way, I think! What about you? Have you added gold to a spot in your home recently?

Come back tomorrow for a stunning giveaway! I'm just so excited, I could burst!

  5. i have been adding a few little gold things into my room. it all started with my gold made by girl love print. then i needed more gold to make it match since i have a lot of silver in my room. i am loving gold so much and pretty much everything on my birthday list is gold.

  6. I'm a big fan of gold. My mom got this really cool gold picture of a chandelier to put in my room but it has yet to be hung up. This, my friends, is called laziness. hahha
