Gilding is not only a great way to add a bit of glamorous sparkle to your home, but it also provides a pop of detail you can’t get with any other finish. When applied correctly, gilding will allow you to mimic the look of patina and metals without needing metallic surfaces — or ever changing hardware. The best part?
