Love the copper look but not the price? This easy diy copper tutorial shows you how to get the copper look on kitchen accessories (or anything, really!) for a tiny fraction of the price.
I just love when projects spontaneously arise.
Don’t get me wrong, I love planning, too. I am definitely a planner (Mr. Pax can attest 😉 ), but there’s something so refreshing about an impulsive project that can make you smile as much as this.
When I was photographing the kitchen for last week’s spring home tour, I wanted a touch of copper on the counter to complement my copper pitcher in this image.
So I pulled out an old rolling pin (super cheap, basic, wooden rolling pin that I was given when we were married) and in about 2.5 minutes, it was transformed into this.

The secret? Rub ‘n Buff in Autumn Gold. I ordered it from Amazon a few weeks ago in preparation for another project, but I hadn’t even opened the package yet. It was even more perfect than I imagined.
The wooden handles were finished with some kind of high-gloss poly or varnish, so I simply roughed them up with a sanding sponge and then spread the Rub ‘n Buff on thickly with a paper towel.
And now this rolling pin is just as functional and a million times more charming, both as a kitchen accent…
And as an actual tool.
Now to control my incredible urge to copper-ify everything… You may have seen the clipboard I used for my free spring printable last week.
Really, nothing is safe. 😉
Get your Autumn Gold Rub ‘n Buff and tell me what you want to copper-ify!
