Are you tired of hearing about rose gold yet? Trick question, thats not actually possible! I’ve been adding small rose gold accents to our master bedroom to tie together the last bits and I thought I’d share two quick projects.
First is a set of throw pillows. I bought these at Michaels before the new color palette for the loft bedroom had come into play. I still love the design and with a small tweak I knew they’d work on our bed.
If you follow me on Instagram you know I tackled these with a couple coats of acrylic paint by Martha Stewart Crafts. The color, of course, is Rose Gold. It might seem a little daunting to hand paint all the coral(or any other intricate design you have) but I promise its worth it! I turned on an audio book, poured a glass of wine, and painted these two super quick. If you like the adult coloring books that have recently become so popular you will love the repetition and mindless creativity of simply filling in the shapes.
Being that these were already printed in gold the change is not crazy drastic but I think you can see the difference in the side by side. I realize this is not the most innovative DIY you’ve probably ever seen online but thats not the point. Sometimes you have pieces in your home you love but they need updating or just a small creative tweak. Nine times out of ten, for me, this happens with a coat of paint. And these pillows are the perfect example of that.
Speaking of paint…. the second project is also a painted update! We’ve had these lamps for some time. They were inexpensive and simple and they have served us well. But they’re nickel/silver and you know the metallic in this room is (all together now!) ROSE GOLD! Ha! So I figured with a coat of paint they could stay and got to work.
I cleaned these really well with a rag and some surface spray, masked off the important parts, and sprayed them in my favorite shade of Rose Gold. These took a good 3 coats but I spray super light to avoid drip marks. Once they were completely dry I fitted them with new lamp shades and … voila! New(to us) lamps that match our bedroom color palette!
So what have you transformed with paint lately? Whats in your home that could use a painted makeover? You know I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
