The Midas Touch

Gold has made such a massive comeback. A few years ago, if it wasn’t silver or platinum it was deemed gaudy and old fashioned (and not in a good way) and banished to the back of a cupboard or stuffed inside a bin bag for the charity shop.

I can’t recall when it happened and who started it but gold is well and truly back in favour, in fashion and definitely with homeware and interiors.

I found this stunning baroque mirror, which had seen better days with a dull brassy patina. Vintro Luxury Paint do a fantastic metallic gold (also available in Silver and Rose Gold) which I’ve used to bring the mirror back to its former glory.

Vintro Luxury Metallic Paint is £15.95 for 250ml. As with all Vintro products, a little goes a long way and a tin will cover up to 12sqm.
