Drawers Painted With 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 sprayer? I use my HomeRight Finish Max on dining chairs and things that are difficult to brush paint. But I digress. Moving on to the spray paint 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. I grabbed the brightest and prettiest of the color samples and headed for the check out stand. The color is Rushing Stream.
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.
I used the same Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish I used on my Polka Dot Table. I have about 6 different spray paint containers of “silver” colors and this one is the best. The paint flows so well and covers like I brushed it on. There aren’t the splotchy areas like you get with some spray paints. The color is very even.
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 overall look so I think it works. At least for me.
What do you guys think? 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 …. Custom Blue Chest.
