Weekend DIY: "Gold Leaf"

As I mentioned yesterday, I decided to make some simple changes to two glass vases to make them a little more special – one I etched, and one I painted with metallic gold glass paint. Just like with the glass etching I first marked my design using contact paper and then applied the paint per the instructions. The paint was a little difficult to get on evenly and I will likely have to go back and touch up once it dries, but after baking in the oven or air curing for 21 days, it will be dishwasher safe. I’m so happy I made these small, easy changes and essentially ended up with completely new pieces.
