I’m a hunter & scavenger of the vintage kind. There’s nothing that gets me more excited that finding thrifted treasures for pennies and up-cycling them into something fabulous. For this project it’s a set of dated brown folding chairs and dress that’s a little too dated for even me to pull off but the fabric is too great not to reuse.
Once the chair is dry, mask off the top part where you will put the gold leaf. Make sure you have your gold leaf ready to go. I suggest testing it out on something small if you haven’t used it before. I learned this the hard way! So then spray or apply generous layer of glue then apply the gold leaf. Brush off the excess when you’re happy with the coverage. I purposely made it look a little rough.
You’ll end up with something like this:
