Simply Smashing Silver Spray Paint
I have a thing for spray paint, especially silver spray paint. I don’t normally use spray paint on furniture but I couldn’t resist. I think it’s okay in small doses but I wouldn’t paint a big piece of furniture with spray paint.
Now a “paint sprayer” is different. You know the kind I’m talking about where you add latex or oil based paint to the spray gun? I like using those on dining chairs and things that are difficult to brush paint. But I digress. Moving on to this project…
turquoise and metallic silver spray paint
How pretty is that?? The metallic silver is the perfect contrast to the bright turquoise.
Valspar paint color Rushing Stream.
I was in Lowes this past week buying plants for my diy chair planters when I walked by the Valspar color sample display. Bells were going off in my head…”don’t I have a coupon for a free color sample”? Well, Yes I Do….it was in one of my magazines and luckily I had ripped it out and stuck it in my purse. So I grabbed the brightest and prettiest of the color samples and headed for the check out stand. Yeah! Free Paint!
perfect project for the free paint
This nightstand has been sitting in the workshop for awhile. It came from My Favorite Junk Shop. I seriously don’t know what I will do if that place ever closes down. It’s Heaven for a junker like me. If you ever make it to the Hopkinsville, Ky area you need to check it out.
I spray painted the drawers and hardware metallic silver.
The Rushing Stream is a really pretty color. It’s a turquoise or aqua depending on your definition of those colors. I used two coats of paint and still have paint left in that little sample jar. It goes a long way.
It looks great with the metallic silver. I spray painted the knobs too. I like the fact that they blend in.
The nightstand was a little rough in places and you can really see it with the metallic paint. The finish on the nightstand had the little dark raised flecks to make it look aged. The flaws add another dimension to the over all look so I think it works. At least for me. What do you guys think?
Do you take advantage of freebies? I only used about a third of the paint sample so there will be more “Rushing Stream” projects in the future.
If you like turquoise paint you will love this project. It was a custom piece for a sweet girl heading off to college. I painted the chest turquoise and did a white wash over it, see it here…. Custom Blue Chest.
Thanks for being here and I’ll see you tomorrow, Kathy
