DIY leopard print gold leaf tray

 This is what happens when you walk around the house with your beloved gold leaf pen looking for something else to gold leaf, and its actually one of my favorite DIY's to date. 

Jenny's post about Caitlin's DIY sharpie les touches chairs reminded me how much I love this fabric and I just looked at a picture and got to work. In total it took about 10 minutes and cost $3, the price of a clearance TJmaxx tray. It looked pretty for about 5 minutes before it got filled with keys, papers, earrings and notes.

  5. Could you have baked the dish so the gold didn't scratch? I've seen that on Pinterest(imagine that) with permanent markers.
