When I shared the simple jeweled box project with you the other day, I had plans to show you today how I gold leafed the agate bookends in the photo. You are all such eagle-eyed readers, though – I couldn’t believe how many questions I got about the bookends!
I found them at Home Goods about a month ago and they were a steal – $14.99 each. For real agate, I was psyched.
Even plain agate is gorgeous, but I’d seen some other blog friends – Kristin at Bliss at Home and Caitlin at Desert Domicile – give their agate pieces the gold treatment and the look was calling to me.
Have you ever worked with liquid gold leaf? It’s so bright and rich and authentic-looking and so easy to use. You just brush it on.
Your supplies for this project are only:
- liquid gold leaf
- a small paintbrush
- agate bookends
