I've done a lot of home projects with gold accenting. Check out my post over at How Does She, where I talk about my favorite gold techniques for DIY projects. This project will cost you less than $80. Not bad for some glamour.
Head yourself over to Ikea and pick up the Vittsjo nesting tables for $59. Then pick up a can of Rustoleum Metallic Gold spray paint. Put together the nesting table then spray paint the frame gold. Only the frame.
Then head over to Amazon and buy marble contact paper. Then take the wood coffee table table, cut to size and cover with the marble contact paper. Warning...sorry for the bad pictures!
You are done! Put your glass top on the bottom of the coffee table. Accessorize the top and enjoy!
