DIY :: Quick and Easy Gold Mugs

Tuesday, September 23, 2014



I’ve seen mugs like this floating around Pinterest and since we all know about my obsession with gold paint…well, it was an obvious way to spend the afternoon getting my craft on. Yes, this one is super easy. Yes, I am jumping on the painted mug bandwagon again. But, friends, I love finding quick and easy DIY projects that are inexpensive and make great gifts. My husband is a coffee roaster so coffee is one of those gifts we give pretty frequently. Mugs are another because it is the perfect marriage. So anytime I can come up with a cute new way to decorate said mugs, I’m in. I hope you enjoy.

I used Krylon Metallic Spray Paint. I would recommend adding a clear ceramic sealer on top and NEVER spray the paint where mouths will touch (or inside.) They will need to be handwashed delicately and forgive me for forgetting to mention that. I don’t own a dishwasher so handwashing is a given for me.

    Beautiful! May I ask what kind of paint you used? I don’t see it listed and can’t quite read the label in the photo–sorry if you included it in the post and I missed it. I assume these are hand-wash only, right? They really look great. I can see them looking amazing in black/gold, beige/gold, purple/gold and all kinds of combos. Thanks for posting!

      Hi Beth! I should have specified, so sorry! I just used a regular metallic spray paint. I would also recommend using a ceramic sealer (Krylon has a good one) as well. Definitely don’t put any paint where mouths will touch and gently rinse the outside (by hand) when washing. Also, I wouldn’t microwave the mug.

We have taken Goodwill and Sal Army pieces of furniture and with some beautiful colors of Krylon spray paint and some changed out hardware made some unique piecs that are distinctly OURS.
