Getting a gold finish to something is always a challenge, options are paint, rub n buff, gold leaf or solid gold.
This was originally a plain wooden cabinet that had been varnished. It was cleaned with soap and water and then rubbed down.
Did not apply any undercoat and applied Liberon Metallic Effect Gold Paint. This needed about 4 coats to get real depth to the finish.
When this was dry then applied in places some gold rub n buff.
