Take this roundup of gold home decor items found on BHG as a prime example.？？ Michael Wurm， designer and BHG blog writer says， “；I’m loving the way that designers are introducing gold in both big and small ways.

So are you jumping on the gold bandwagon yet？？ We knew you’；d be gushing for gold like we are! The good news about this trend is that you can add as little or as much as you like to make it work for your space. The easiest and most cost-efficient way to do that is with a stencil!？ So whether you’re looking to go bold with gold or just add a hint of glamor to your space， check out some of our favorite gold stenciled projects…；
Let’；s start by introducing a touch of gold in an unexpected place， like a planter pot.？ Take the lead from Whitney， the DIY craft queen from Drab to Fab Design.？ She had a boring， dingy planter pot that was in desperate need of a makeover.？ We sent her our？Shipibo Craft Stencil and presto chango， she turned it into this! You can read the tutorial on our blog.
Or consider putting a gold touch on a piece of furniture like our fab fan， Michelle did.？ She refinished a beat up table in purple chalk paint and topped it off with a gold metallic Zinnia Grande Stencil!？ We love it!
Do you have an old coffee tray sitting around？？ Let’；s glam that baby up with a little stenciled gold like this one! Carmela from Our Fifth House had an old coffee tray that she had painted white.？ She decided to give it some bling using the Athena Stencil in gold.？ You can check out her blog for the deets but here is the final result!？ All we can say is WOW!
Perhaps you’；d like to add a sparkly accent wall in your closet like Kate， from Centsational Girl.？ She painted her walls in Benjamin Moore’；s mellow pink 2094-70 and then stenciled the Budding Clematis Stencil in champagne metallic paint.？ We love the whimsical touch， don’；t you？
But wait， we have another gold-stenciled closet to show off!？ Danielle， from 1868 Pleasant chose to add a metallic Chevron Stencil to the inside of her closet.？ To get this stunning look she used glitter paint， similar to Benjamin Moore’；s Studio Finishes Glitter Paint.？ Pretty awesome， right？？ Who wouldn’；t want to have a sparkly stripe dressing up their closet!!
Ready to go bold with gold？ Pamela from the blog PBJ Stories sure did!？ She used the Chevron Allover Stencil to transform the ceiling of her daughter’；s nursery.？ It looks smokin’；， Pamela!
Well you can check out Ceramcoat 14kt Gold or Modern Masters in Gold Rush or Pale Gold.？ These brands can be found at your local craft store like Michaels or JoAnn’s.？ We also like Benjamin Moore’；s Studio Finishes Glitter Paint.
