The Golden Rooster

~Brass Animals~


Gold is my new favorite color in accessories, both in fashion and for the home.

I’ve always been a silver kind of girl, but at the moment…I’m loving the gold!

And I’m really loving the trend of using brass animals in home decor.

But who says you must have real “brass”? No one! You can create the look of brass animals so easily with the PERFECT shade of gold spray paint!

You must try this gorgeous gold from Design Master. You can find it at Michaels.

I took this Goodwill rooster…

and turned it into the Golden Rooster!

What a transformation! I have to say that this gold paint is amazing!! I found out about it from the Little Green Notebook. Jenny said it was the best gold spray paint and she was 100% spot on!

Nothing is safe in my house…I may turn everything into gold!

  2. I love a good spray paint & use them in many projects. I can think of a few things I’d love to change to gold. Nice goodwill find! Might just have to go thrifting soon!

  3. How funny – the company where I work has an employee recognition award called the golden rooster!! I’d be just as happy with one of your DIY ones I think – great job.

  4. That looks wonderful! I’ve been on a gold kick lately, too. I’ll have to keep that paint in mind. I also saw a blogger use spray from an auto store.. it resembled the finish on your rooster… high gloss… lots of shine. JUST fabulous! :) LOVE IT!
