Playful Polka Dots Highlight Metallic Silver Paint Makeover

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Metallic Mania!

That’s what I’m calling it.

I have a crazy, gorgeous, over-the-top, metallic paint makeover for you today.

My painting pals got together and decided March was the month for Metallic Themed Furniture.

And I’m fine with that because I love using metallic paint….especially metallic silver paint.

Isn’t she a beauty.

I know.

Patting myself on the back again.

I’m good at that Winking smile

The table came from My Favorite Junk Shop.

I got a little playful this time.

Polka dots are such fun.

I tried to get just the right number with out overdoing it.

I also played up the flaws in the table.

inspiration for paint project petticoat junktion

The inspiration for this project came from a scrap board that I use when spray painting hardware.

At one time I spray painted something a dark brown…….. then another time I painted some round knobs with metallic silver spray paint…..and that’s what caused the brown circles.

Every time I walked by that board in the workshop, it caught my eye.

So this table was the guinea pig for the metallic paint and polka dots.

I paired it with my favorite chair and a shiny coffee urn filled with greenery and flowers (fake) for the photo shoot.

The urn also came from My Favorite Junk Shop and only cost $5.

$5 seems to be my magic number these days.
