When I was a kid, I hated the color gold. My mom loved it and all her jewelry was gold and of course I had to rebel in every small way, so I only liked silver. My, my how the tables have turned. Well, not hers (she still loves gold), but mine. I love the way gold accents instantly make something seem more high end and gorgeous. It’s really kind of amazing how you can transform something so easily by just adding a touch of gold to it. Take these vases for example. I found these fun shaped vases at Ikea for 5.99 for a set of two and loved the shapes, but not the colors so much. But I knew with a little bit of spray paint and a few gold additions, I could easily turn these vases into DIY gold accented flower vases that are just my style.
