The gold rush is on. From makeup to fashion to home decor, metallics — particularly gold — are on trend. Unfortunately, the stronger the trend, the higher the prices. But don't give those prices a second thought. DIY your way to the trend with home accents that look far more expensive than they are.
Price is not the only advantage to this DIY gold-handled flatware. Many of the versions you buy have to be washed by hand, but these are dishwasher safe. Gorgeous, inexpensive and low maintenance: You've hit the motherlode.
