Tug on these rocks...updated

After I posted my DIY rock pull I realized I should have painted the button part gold.  It would have made it 100 times cooler IMO. 


So yesterday I went back and painted it gold- it looks much happier.



Its like an ah-ha moment!  LOVE the way it looks now.


I'm armed with gold paint and I know how to use it. Watch out house, I'm on the loose.

really chic pulls! love the gold addition. would you mind sharing, what kind of gold paint your used. Sometimes gold paints can have to much sparkle or look cheap. thanks much!

Jesse- I used Golden brand paint- its an acrylic artists paint I picked up at a local paint store. But I'm sure other craft stores carry it as well, check their site to see where they sell it near you. I like the Iridescent Gold or Bronze colors best.

Someone needs to restrain me from the gold paint. If I could I'd paint my face gold!

Looks even better!
