recently the fireman & i were given these awesome Agate Bookends that sat in his grandparents home for years... since the 70's, i'm guessing. so to make them fit into our home and hopefully sit on our bookshelf for the next 40 years, i needed to make this fabulous bookend more, us! so gold leaf it was!! as i posted here, i have a new found love for liquid leaf. it is basically the paint version of the gold leaf sheets we all know and love. but this paint is so much easier to use. so here is the newest addition to our home...
you will need:
zip lock bag (to line/protect your plate)
painters tape (i didn't tape off the colorful part of Agate rock, but you may want to)
*sponge on pant in a gentle & even way
*let dry & voila!
total project cost... $6!
not too shabby.
