Fri-DIY: Drinking Liquid Gold

Though I’m not one to say that tea is not equivalent to gold, because I think it is, I’m not talking about tea in this instance. This post is about these simply chic gold mugs you could use for your godly tea that I found on Garland of Grace. Ever since I saw these beauties pop up on my Pinterest feed I’ve been wanting to ditch all of my assorted mugs and swap them out for some shiny new white ones so I could complete this DIY. Since that’s seriously ridiculous, I have not, but that doesn’t make me love this project any less.

Perfect for a gift or just as a pretty addition to breakfast time in your house, these gold painted mugs are stylish and beautiful. Make note that they are not dishwasher safe, so either come up with some ingenious idea to make them safe (and tell me!) or hand wash to keep them shiny and gilded!

P.S. I promise I have other ideas to share that aren’t just for transforming your mugs… but these last two Fri-DIY projects have been pretty gorgeous, don’t you think?

Thanks again to Garland of Grace for sharing this lovely DIY and so many others like it!

Fri-DIY: Watercolor Mugs

Happy Friday bunnies! Is there anything that says the weekend more than a good cup of coffee in bed with the sun shining through your bedroom windows? Maybe cocktails… but that’s a little later in the day…

Whichever you prefer, this mug will always be the cup you grab for! I saw this DIY about a year ago on Poppytalk and could not believe how beautiful the watercolor pattern was. The swirled colors look like a photograph, and the process to create them is surprisingly simple. With some plain white mugs and your favorite nail polish, you will be serving the best brew in no time.

Check out the full tutorial for watercolor mugs on Poppytalk and get lost in their lovely site. This particular post was written by Caitlin McGrath from The Merrythought… two great blogs in one post, what a Fri-DIY!
