I proclaim this the “shiny season”.
You know I love silver metallic paint.
But really, I love all metallics.
I also love bling…..the more the better.
silver metallic dresser
The dresser came from My Favorite Junk Shop.
It is the mate to the pink chest I featured last week. If you guys will remember, the furniture was made of mdf and the top was bubbled up.
This dresser had the same problem.
I sanded the top and used a coat of gray gripper primer before applying the metallic paint.
I used Martha Stewart Precious Metals in Mirror Glass for the finish.
(click the pink letters to view the other projects, you can come right back here!)
The paint was a little uneven looking this time and a little streaky.
I’ve seen comments on-line before about the streakiness of the paint but this is the first time I had the problem.
I stirred the paint frequently while working with it because it does tend to separate.
I wasn’t too worried about the streaking on this piece because I intended to use Caromal Colours Toner to age the finish.
The toner is a great product for “antiquing” furniture.
update 3/2/2014 Many of you encountered problems when trying to order the Toner from the company online so I am now selling the toner on Etsy. Just click the photo below.
Photography is something I really struggle with and trying to photograph metallic furniture makes me pull my hair out.
I’m almost bald
Are you ready to decorate for Christmas?
I bought a new fake Christmas tree today.
Half the lights on our pre-lit tree haven’t worked for the past two years so I thought it was time.
You can leave me a little note below.
I love hearing from you.
You only have to leave your name (first name is ok) and your email address, then your comment.
