Gold is everywhere at the moment. I can’t even browse the home decor isles at Target for fear that everything might jump into my cart and I go broke. Plus, my husband doesn’t share my obsession for all things gold – I have to sneak things in one at a time so he doesn’t notice. But really, why is it that a can of gold spray paint can transform something ugly into something fun and unique? Enter IKEA and the best gold spray paint hacks out there.
I’m absolutely in love with this gilded desk DIY. It looks a million bucks, but all it really had is new handles from the hardware store and gold spray paint on the legs. High end style, but with a DIY budget – now thats what we like!

Gold lamps make such an elegant addition to any room, but is it just me, or are lamps super expensive? I mean, I know they play a big part in decor, but I just can’t bring myself to spend $60 for a table lamp. BUT I will happily pay $20 for a cheap table lamp and a can of spray paint. This is going on the must-have list for my next IKEA trip!
