17 DIY Projects Using Gold Paint…. #2 Is Perfect For My Teenage Daughter.

You've probably seen countless DIY projects you'd love to try but just having quite gotten around to. Here's some that can be done so easily and in very little time that you just might be inspired enough to close your laptop, go to your local hardware store, and pick up a few cans of gold paint to get started.

It's amazing how a little gold paint can transform the most ordinary items in your home into beautiful, sophisticated accent pieces. Your old furniture will get a whole new fresh look. The trick is not to get carried away and paint everything in your house gold.

#1. Gold mason jars

This has got to be the easiest project ever, right? Find some mason jars, spray them gold, and allow time to dry. Add some flowers. You're a DIY gold pro now.

#2. Make your sneakers 24K gold

All you need is some gold acrylic paint, gold liquid gilding, and Mod Podge (as sealer), and a brush. Be sure to do this outside or in a space that's well ventilated.

#3. Turn your old globe into an elegant piece.

Paint the oceans with two coats of black paint. Apply adhesive to the continents and allow 10-20 minutes for it to become tacky. Place gold foil over the areas. It's really forgiving so if you mess up don't fret. It's a piece of art after all.

Bonus points: Use black chalk board paint so you can write down all the places you've traveled to.

#4. Gold coffee mugs

Use painter's tape or masking tape to create the design you want. Spray matte-finnish indoor fast-drying gold spray paint and finish with a sealer for ceremic.

#5. Give a tired old chair a beautiful makeover.

Spray a few coats of gold paint and allow time to dry. You'll have a gorgeous new throne to sit on. All you need now is your tiara.
