Gilded Coffee Table

A ho-hum table passes as a glam antique when gilded with inexpensive gold leaf.

Fresh wallpaper and a tailored settee keep the look modern. To learn how to create your own DIY gold leaf accent pieces, watch Michael Penney demonstrate on Online TV. Wear will occur over time, giving them the character of an heirloom.

See more great ideas for using gold as an accent in our Decorating With Gold gallery.
