Gold Spray Paint DIYs

I can be lethal with a can of good, gold spray paint (Rust-Oleum is my 'go to'). From picture frames, home decor accessories to jewelry, I'll spray it. I've gone there on brand new Pottery Barn lamps to make them look like the more expensive Robert Abbey. You can see the post here. Here are a few other DIYs out there with the metallic can worth noting!

I could go on and on with things to spray paint gold. So many fun choices!


  1. The cane chair is sublime. Did you use Rust-oleum for this? We're kind of stuck with Plasti-Kote over here in the Britain, all depends on what UK Tool Centre have in stock. Have you ever used it? I'm not sure it's as great a finish.
