I find it pretty amazing how a layer of gold can completely transform an object by elevating it from yawn to yow-za with a simple change in pigment. Now I am eyeing everything in my home imaging how it would look with a nice layer of meticulously applied gold leaf. The glitter! The gleam! The glamour! The glitz! Of course, I could simply resort to the lazy man's version of gold leaf aka gold spray paint...oh, the horror.
