MY DIY | Gold Accent Dishes







Hey All! I ment to post this last week to go along with my gold accent inspiration post, but I spent most of last week in airports (I just happen to have two trips during a week with major snowstorms).  But I wanted to still show you an easy way to add a little something extra to your basic white dishes. Freehand little hearts and dots, or stencil on a fun shape! It’s an instant (and oh-so-cute) makeover in minutes.

More DIY’s in the post: Check out the Washi tape art here, and brass Himmeli hanger here


What you need: 
White mug, bowl or S&P Shaker
Gold Paint pen

Note:  To set the paint, let dry for 24hours and then bake in the oven for 30 min at 350, letting the mug warm up and cool down in the oven. Hand wash.





  1. Defiantly taking these as inspiration for my new room! I love them! xo
