DIY Brushstroke File Folder

We’re still crushing on gold over here. We just can’t get enough of the shimmery, metallic metal.

We also are trying to master the art of brushstrokes. After dabbing into the paint this weekend, we’ve come to the conclusion that brushstrokes are so versatile and subjective, anyone can do it. You can do this particular project in under 5 minutes.

Our new DIY brushstroke file folder keeps us organized {ok, Jenna doesn’t need it because she’s uber organized, and maybe not Jessica because we’re not sure the word organization is in her vocabulary}, and it’s a piece of art all-in-one. We are no van Gogh, but now we have a fashionable desk accessory, and for us, that’s enough.
