TRENDING: Gold, Silver & Bronze Inspiration

Gold Silver Bronze Round Up via homework |

Glitter Succulent Pots via homework | carolynshomework.comI recently posted about these little succulent pots that I stenciled and glittered and someone commented that all I needed was a silver one. Uh duh, why didn’t I think of that. I mean, it was in the middle of the Olympics and I left out poor silver. Because metallics are so in style right now, I thought I’d round up some of the most beautiful: gold, silver and bronze projects out there.
