In the June issue of Martha Stewart Living there is a brilliant display of metallic straw accessories. From hats to baskets to handbags, they've got it going on. I love my floppy straw hat for summer and with my new found joy in gold spray paint, well I knew this project was for me. However, I didn't want to go all in and completely coat my straw hat in a golden sheen, so I went for a dipped look. I like how it turned out, just a subtle contrast.
