"I'm gold obsessed. Period. End of story. If it's brass and shiny, I want it. What I don't love as much, however, is the price tag that often comes attached to this glamorous metallic. Case in point: My search for the perfect console and coffee tables. Since shelling out thousands of dollars was just not an option, I had a very hard time finding a chic and luxe budget-friendly option so I took matters into my own hands. I headed to IKEA and came home with a MALM console table and Klubbo coffee table. Knowing that both pieces just had to be gold, I sent them off to my trusted painter, Tim of Beresford Inc., to cover the console and coffee table framework in gold leaf. For less than $800, I ended up with two amazing, glamorous tables that look completely custom and so deserving of their golden spotlight." -- Christine Dovey
