Gold Home Office Accessories

Gold leaf home office accesories

Happy Monday everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was very busy, hubby and I we tried a new summer dessert, we prepared a delicious Bundt cake and we got to work on small projects around the house. Nate, keeps himself busy coloring and eating his new Crayola set. I have to keep an eye on him every minute.
Today I am sharing with you small projects that I put together to update my craft room and my inspiration behind them:
I’ve been following Kelly from View Along The Way and I enjoy reading her blog, not only is she talented, she is funny. Kelly, along with other bloggers is participating in a ‘Ditto DIY post’ party: June 3rd. This fun party is about painting anything in ‘gold’ and sharing it with other bloggers.
Of course I wanted to participate. This would give me a chance to work with gold leaf sheets again.
I believe that pink and gold complement each other very well. So, I thought, I would integrate ‘gold’ in my pink craft room.
I used gold leaf sheets, a gold leafing pen and gold leaf spray paint to create these gold accessories for the desk in my office/craft room.
This post, is only to show you the overall results of my gold projects and I will be sharing with you the tutorials on how I achieved them in a future post.
Gold desktop display
Remember, I showed you this notebook in one of my previous posts? I love notebooks, I used them everyday and I have a lot of them around the house and always carry one in my purse. Have you ever seen a gold notebook in the stores? I haven’t, but I don’t go shopping very often anymore. Anyhow, recently I saw one on Martha Stewart’s June edition Living magazine, there was a picture of a stunning metallic leather cover journal. The journal looked so pretty and I wanted one right away but I already have too many brown leather journals in my house that hubby bought for me years ago. I knew I could achieve a similar look on my own by using gold leaf sheets:
gold leaf notebook
I received this grey Mickey Mouse notebook from my brother on my last birthday. He knows, me very well. I decided to personalize it with my oil-based Sharpie gold paint marker. It was easy, it took me one minute to draw inside the lines and I love the outcome. Now, it’s my grey-gold Mickey Mouse notebook:

Do you see how my brown leather journal turned out? Beautiful, I love it, it looks great!

I also updated an old desktop carousel that I found in our garage a couple of weeks ago. It was in one of my hubby’s boxes that he brought with him when we moved in together. I liked it but it was black and didn’t go with our décor. I started by transforming it in gold with gold sheets but I ran out of them. I went to Michael’s to get some more but we were in a hurry and I accidentally bought the copper leaf sheets instead. Warning, they look very similar in the package but completely different when applied. I had gold spray paint for another project and decided to spray paint the desktop carousel instead. I was scared of the result and that the leather would be ruined. Fortunately, it turned out great:

The next small project is one of my pink dollar store planter that I use to store my markers. I spray painted the bottom in gold and left the top as is for contrast. I really like how the pink pops next to the gold:

Did you notice the smallest gold booklet next to my gold journal? Well, it is in fact homemade post-it’s set in a gold color casing. I can’t wait to show you how I pulled this pretty and simple project off in a future post. I don’t think I will ever buy post-it’s again. OK, who am I kidding? I will still buy them:

Finally, this is another planter from IKEA that I updated with gold leaf sheets. Yes, you guessed right, the plant in the picture is fake. I don’t have many plants in my house but I have a few of these around because I know they won’t die:

This is how my new gold home office accessories look on my desktop:

I love how they look great together:

I hope you liked them as much as I do! Is anyone else painting anything in gold this summer or have painted in the past? Please let me know and I beg you to please tell me I’m not the only one!
Hope you will have a great week!
Thanks again for stopping by!

    I adore gold. I have gold in my office, the curtains. I was wondering how to bring in some more pizzazz! Your office is lookin’ great! I’m also loving the flowerpot! I have some bigger planters outside…now I want to group them together in different metallics- gold, copper, bronze, silver, pewter…

    Okay, I’m off to get some spray paint!

      🙂 Thank you so much Amy! oh! I’m so happy you love gold too! 🙂 I love gold but wasn’t sure how to integrate it in the rest of the house but in the craft room it looks great! I have these big planters in the front of my house too and I still have spray paint left and I was thinking the same thing you are! 🙂 I hope you are doing well and that your electricity is back on! 🙂 take care!

    • now at home mom says:

      Thank you Kenley! oh! I love using gold leaf sheets, the only part I don’t like; is that it gets very sticky and the sheets get stuck to my fingers and I waste them! What I enjoyed was spray painting with gold paint; the coverage is perfect! 🙂

      Thank you very much Abby! 🙂 I wasn’t sure about spray painting the desktop carousel, I gave it a try and while waiting to see how it looks, I was thinking that if it doesn’t work; I will have to throw it away but I was very surprised at how well it turned out! 🙂 thanks again Abby, hope you are having a great week too!

    Hi Ingrid, I never painted anything gold before but recently I bought a gold and a silver sharpie pen for my crafts resources. Actually, you gave me some great ideas to do with my gold sharpie.

  • Lauren @ The Thinking Closet says:

    Ingrid, way to go! I love gold…it’s my current obsession…and you did such a tasteful job of transforming these accessories (and I like the complimentary colors in a lot of them…especially that pink!). My favorite part? “I don’t think I will ever buy post-it’s again. OK, who am I kidding? I will still buy them.” Ha ha. It’s almost as if I can hear your voice saying that. I cannot wait to see the tutorials for how you pulled all of these different methods off. Sooo cool!

    June 4, 2013 at 9:24 pm
    • now at home mom says:

      🙂 ha!ha! thank you so much Lauren! 🙂 I love how gold goes so well with pink too!

    Ingrid, you are enjoying yourself and that makes me happy. Your craft room is looking great. Gold is a colour that is hard to accommodate in modern layouts but you have used it very tastefully. Great job!

    I LOVE the gold, I mean absolutely love it. I think I am one of the few who always had gold in my house, even when everyone started to go the chrome route. I haven’t shared my office updates, but I also had some fun updated my stuff with gold spray paint. I love your combination of it with the pink, super feminine and classy.

    Ingrid, I love how you added gold to Mickey. What a fun way to personalize something. All of your gold desk accents make me want some, too.
