I have this friend, Emily, who thinks you can fix any unsightly home good with gold spray paint. And you know what? I can’t argue with that. Gold is the tits. I wanted a new coaster set because the picture coasters [you know you have at least one set hiding in your house] from my wedding weren’t quite meshing with my 2013 design sensibilities. Cue Em, “Spray paint that shit gold?” Okay, she didn’t say that at all, but it’s funnier that way. So she took my coaster holder thingy and sprayed it a matte gold. In my mind she keeps a secret locker full of gold spray paint so she’s always prepared just in case something needs a quick spraying. I removed the beer bottle labels that The Captain had lovingly removed from the picture inserts and added super cute scraps of paper I had in my paper box. Yes, yes. I have a paper box. I have a weakness for expensive and pretty paper. Such a weird obsession because honestly what do you do with a stack of pretty paper? Well I put it in my picture coasters. BOOM. 10 points to Gryffindor for using shit you already have in your house! I’m a virtual budget diy pioneer. Okay, I’m getting carried away. I shouldn’t have had that 2nd chai latte. Well here’s the finished product! Super easy, super cheap, and looks tres chic.
