DIY | A TOUCH OF GOLD

February 21, 2016

I love a touch of gold, especially when it comes to interiors. Gold can be quite opulent and overpowering, so I prefer smaller details of it; combined with more neutral colours. And with the use of just a spray can, it´s so easy change it up! 

Although I´ve been working my magic with that spray can all over the house; one of the places I wanted to show you was our bedroom. This room is very calm and serene (which I love), but I wanted to add some warmth and eclecticism to the overall look. The wardrobe handles was the clear choice, and although I quite liked the grey tonal colour palette all blending in, I still felt the need to change it up just slightly (and I am so glad I did). 


BEFORE

Simple brushed chrome wardrobe handles…

AFTER

A classic and smooth gold touch of gold… The room still feels calm and minimal, yet has that added touch of gold luxe – just the way I wanted it.

My go-to can is from Rust-Oleum in Brilliant Metallic Gold. I´ve tried and tested several gold spray cans now, and this definitely gives the nicest shade of gold, and the quality and finish is excellent. And it´s less than £10!

I find it pretty easy to spray paint now, but it does take a couple of times to get the hang of it (or, you might be a total natural at first try!). The trick is to do it slowly backwards and forwards, until it´s all covered. But not too much, as to not get any thick lumps or uneven patches.

    Anneli, one question – do you think it would look the same if applied on bronze handles? I know you applied on silver one and was wondering how it would look like on darker ones. Thank you!

      Hi Nina,

      I can´t see it making any difference at all – these sprays are made to cover just about anything, so if you invest in a good quality one + one that has loads of positive reviews – I think it will look just as good! Good luck :)

    Does this last? Thinking of using on kitchen handles so will have quite heavy use. Thanks

      It has on our wardrobes, but I wouldn’t personally recommend it for your kitchen, as one will many times have wet/greasy hands that will no doubt start rubbing off the gold spray. Hope that helps!

    Do you recall the colour paint on your wardrobe?
