If you've ever gone shopping in search of the perfect copper accent piece for your home, you know this metal can cost a pretty penny. And it's a shame - because this versatile metal looks great in both modern and shabby-chic spaces.
Instead of shelling out your entire piggy bank for one accessory, try your hand at one (or a few) of these faux copper do-it-yourself projects. Whether you decide to go for the sleek and shiny modern copper look, or the weathered vintage flare - these DIY projects are going to satisfy all of your copper cravings for a fraction of the cost.
