I’ve always loved malachite and gold/brass furniture and decorative items, but clearly they are waaaaaay out of my price range!!!
Naturally I don’t let that stop me! Time for more decoupage and spray paint- two of my favourite things!!!!
This old craft wood container was decoupaged with Chinese characters about 15 years ago, when such designs were very popular in my home!
After painting the container gold and cutting out the shapes for each side, I trimmed the edges slightly to make them just a bit smaller than the sides of the container. This gave just a little bit of gold around all the edges.
How much do I love it? See for yourself…
