A Touch Of Glamor At The Workplace: Gold Desk Accessories

A boring and impersonal work space doesn’t really inspire anyone to be efficient with their tasks. When you add your own touch and decorate the space the way you like it, things are quite different. So what are you waiting for? There are tons of cool desk accessories you can choose from. Today it’s all about gold. We’ve prepared a bunch of gold desk accessories for you to have a look at. Some are DIY projects while others can be found in stores.

Tin cans in gold for an organized office

Let’s start with something simple: tin cans turned into desk organizers. Check out Mountainmodernlife to find out how you can make something similar out of some empty tin cans and some gold spray paint. You’ll also need a piece of scrap wood, painter’s tape, clear sealer and white paint. First, clean the tin cans and paint them white. Then tape off the design on them and spray paint gold sections. At the end, apply a coat of sealer.

Gold Mouse pad you can DIY

Finding a mouse pad that actually looks stylish and is to your taste can prove to be a challenging task. A simpler option would be to just take a plain one and customize it. Take some thin vinyl tape and create a pattern on the mouse pad. Then spray paint the whole surface gold. Remove the tape and enjoy the new look. {found on homeyohmy}.

Gold marbled pencil cup

The gold-marbled pencil holder featured on Lovelyindeed is an accessory that can slightly change the décor and ambiance in your work space. To get this look you need a plain pencil cup, toothpicks or popsicle sticks and liquid gilding. Gently drop some liquid gilding in some water and swirl it around. Then roll the cup over, holding it sideways over the water. When you’re happy with how it looks, let it dry.

DIY cork and gold pencil cups

You should also have a look at the project we found on Crafthunter. It shows you how to make cork pen cups with lovely golden accents. The supplies needed include cylinder containers, craft glue, cork sheets, gold spray paint, rubber bands and pegs. Cut the cork so it wraps around the cups. Then paint the pattern you’ve chosen on each sheet. Let it dry and then roll the cork and glue it to form the cup.

Esy tose gold foiled pencil cup

A simple glass tumbler can be easily transformed into a chic pencil holder for your desk. All you need is some white spray paint, some double sided tape and rose gold foil. Spray paint the glass cup, let it dry and then apply strips of tape to create the desired pattern on its surface. Then place the foil onto the tape and rub it a little bit so it sticks. Then peel it back. Now you have a stylish white cup with rose gold stripes. {found on damasklove}.

Metallic magazine files

This sort of magazine holders are very practical but don’t always look as glamorous as they should. You can change that by giving them a makeover. There are a few very simple options. You could spray paint them and that would only take a few minutes. You could also decorate them with wrapping paper. This would take a bit more time but would also allow you to use an interesting pattern or design. {found on enthrallinggumption}.

DIY gold Desk dishes

To find out how to turn simple glass containers into stylish gold desk accessories, Homeyohmy offers some pretty great ideas. A very simple one is to just tape some painter’s tape, delineate an area or a pattern on your glass dishes and jars and then spray paint the surface with gold paint. You can do this for things like a pencil holder or a small dish for holding paper clips and other things.

Gold pattern desk organizers

Another chic idea is to use tape to make a grid on the containers or to delineate stripes. After that, spray paint the empty portions with gold paint, remove the tape and you’re left with an interesting pattern. Use this technique to create all sorts of geometric or repetitive patterns. Similarly, you can make a polka dot design.Full project on Homeyohmy.

DIY cross stitch office supplies

It’s easy to reproduce the cross-stitch design featured on Camillestyles. You just need some colored yarn and desk accessories with mesh wire sections. First, spray paint the accessories gold and let the paint dry. Then cut some yarn and start threading it through the small holes. Weave the pattern that you’ve chosen and combine various colors to get the right look.

Of course, you can skip the threading and just spray paint your desk accessories gold. It doesn’t really get any simpler than that. Just make sure you apply the paint evenly and from the right distance. Actually, if you prefer a different color you can customize the accessories accordingly. {found on greylustergirl}.
