DIY : Copper Accent

Lately I’ve noticed how much I appreciate and started seeking out very simple clothing, home decor items, etc. — but the products that stand out the most are the ones with the subtle differences, i.e. the pocket in the lower right corner, the strip of gold just on the toe part of a sandal, the cuffs or small buttons on the sleeve of a sold colored shirt.

One of my favorite subtleties in home decor (and shoes as mentioned) is a pop of gold or copper which really gives an old/new aesthetic, especially if it’s part of repurposing something through a DIY project. Here are a few examples of fun DIY projects you can do to add a little copper accent to your space.
