A Fun Small Craft in Black & Gold

Ok, I know I have a thing about black and gold, but it really is so pretty and looks so good anywhere in my opinion.  I have been trying to add a few more black accessories to my kitchen and of course with a little gold it makes it even better.

We all need a papertowel holder and there are a ton out there, but nothing with a lot of personality and I didn't find a thing in black and gold.  So I decided I could makeover the one I have.

 I have had this one for years and years.  It has served me well and the apple is cute, but I want something a little more chic.

 So I decided to paint the apple.

 Super simple, just out to my stump in the yard and a little spray paint.

 Then a few touches of gold paint.

 Total transformation.

Ok, now I am loving this better.

Isn't it funny how such a simple change can make a difference.

  1. I love the transformation. I looks beautiful in your kitchen. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  2. That is cute! Very chic! Would u tell me about your knife magnet please? How is the wall?backsplash? Is that a glass backsplash? Thx!!!

    1. No backsplash. It is attached with screws and anchors into the sheetrock. Then the magnet strip just fits over it. I found it at Ikea, they have several sizes. I bought the smallest.

  3. I love it!!! It is perfect. Can't believe you thought to do this.

  4. Looks great Marty . You are right just a little thing like that makes a huge difference
