Today’s project could possibly be the quickest & simplest transformation we’ve ever shared, but it’s an amazing one! We love working with chalk & clay paints because they are so simple & natural, but another spray paint is another fabulous option for transforming home decor.  I’ve had an obsession with everything GOLD recently, especially for our new navy blue office [tour coming soon!].  So since gold items aren’t always easy to find I’ve been having fun making my own using flea market finds!  I recently picked up an old ice bucket for my new bar cart, it wasn’t very attractive, but it was the perfect size and shape.  After a little spray paint, it became a beautiful statement piece on my bar cart!
