DIY Gold Leaf Trays

I love the idea of updating items I already own to give them a personal touch.  As I was rearranging my kitchen cabinets, I realized that I had a few ceramic plates that I had not used in quite a while.  It gave me the idea to DIY them into trays for my vanity, which are perfect to store my jewelry, makeup and perfume.  I went with a rose gold design against the white palette for a beautiful and chic look.

Steps:

1. Thoroughly shake your adhesive pen. Then, draw a design on your plate. Try polka dots, stripes, or other geometric shapes. Let it dry for 5 to 10 minutes.
