I decided to take these lucite pieces and add a bit of gold leaf to touch them up. It is a small, subtle change- but I love it!
All you need to do this at home is a gold leaf set and some brushes. I did not really do a step by step here because the steps are hard to see on acrylic. Brush on glue, let it dry for approximately 20 minutes, press gold leaf sheet on top of glued area and rub with a brush. (instructions are with a gold leaf kit and the sheets when you purchase)
For the magazine rack, I only wanted the edges done in gold. That is how I decided on using gold leaf for the makeover- the glue and gold leaf would make it more precise as opposed to paint or rub and buff.
The little boxes hold business cards and mini gold glitter clothespins that I made- yes, I really stick to a theme in my office supplies.
$1.50 for the little lucite cube. This is why I love thrifting- another man’s junk (an empty game box) became gold desk accessories for me that do not cost me a fortune!
I had to blur the laptop- I realized what was showing was a post for next week 😉
