Spray Paint Colors
My favorite copper spray paint is making another showing. It’s one of 5 metallic spray paint colors I keep stocked on my paint shelf. Spray paint projects are so easy and so fast. The paint is perfect for small home décor accessories. I have two new metallic copper projects to share then we’re going to look at my other favorite metallics.
I bought the stainless steel container at Ikea in Memphis. When I go to visit my parents I stop in and shop for just a bit. The Memphis Ikea is at the half way point (7 hour drive) between my parents’ home and our home. The mirror is one I bought at an auction. I think I paid $5 for it and another mirror.
I forgot to take photos of the stainless steel container after taping it off and before painting it. I used 3M painters tape and taped a geometrical design on the containter….just willy nilly.
I taped around the edges of the mirror too but didn’t cover the whole glass. There was just a bit of paint on the mirror when I finished and I scrapped it off with a razor blade. I missed getting a photo of the mirror before painting too. It was antique gold, and not a pretty antique gold. Copper is in now…..at least with me…..in case you couldn’t tell.
It took less than 10 minutes to spray both of these pieces. The mirror is already sold. The stainless steel container can be used as a utensil holder, candleholder, etc. Maybe you have some other ideas?
My Favorite Metallic Spray Paint Colors
1. Rustoleum Bright Coat Metallic Copper
So, the copper color is my number one favorite right now. I used it on the hardware for the gray mid-century piece you see behind the mirror and also on a vintage vanity stool. Oh yeah, on a Fall/Hallowen centerpiece too. Almost forgot that one. (Just click any of the pink links or the project photos below to see the full details)
2. Rustoleum Bright Coat Metallic Silver
Turquoise and Metallic Silver Nightstand
At one time I wouldn’t even consider painting furniture with spray paint. Then I ran across this paint. I used the metallic silver on several small accessories and noticed how smooth the finish was and how good it covered. So why not try it on furniture. I started small with the drawer fronts. The silver is perfect with the turquoise.
Silver and White Serving Stand
I also painted the candlestick base of the serving stand with the metallic silver.
Polka Dot Table
Now this project was a lot of fun. I was really into polka dots and I still like them. After the spray paint dried I aged the silver paint with Caromal Colours Toner. The toner adds depth and character to paint.
3. Rustoleum Metallic Rose Gold
Gold Stripe Chest
I wasn’t sure about adding the stripe to the black chest of drawers but I’m glad I did. The rose gold metallic color has just a hint of rose or pink. It really isn’t noticeable until you have it next to metallic gold then you can see the difference. I liked the stripped chest of drawers so much I moved it into the master bedroom. Then I sold the chest of drawers it replaced.
Spray Paint Furniture Hardware
The original hardware on the coral chest needed a new look and the rose gold made the pulls better than new.
4. Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used the oil rubbed bronze spray paint. The neutral color works just about anywhere.
Spray Paint Outdoor Furniture
The chairs that go to our outdoor table set have been falling apart one by one. I redid the chairs a few years ago adding new fabric. Boy was that a job. The original color of the chair was blue…..an outdated blue. It definitely looks better in oil rubbed bronze.
Stenciled Number Table
The stenciled table is an oldie but a goody. You do have to see this project. I laid out stencils all over the table then used the oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
5. Rustoleum Metallic Antique Bronze
Spray Paint Door Hardware
Funny story about the door knocker…..the upside down door knocker. One of you guys had to tell me I put the door knocker on upside down. I do depend on you to keep me straight. Guess what? Five years later it’s still upside down. I used metallic antique bronze on the door hardware. It was shiny brass. When I painted the front door I updated the hardware.
The cute little lamp got a makeover with the metallic bronze too.
Rustoleum Metallic Antique Brass
These two projects are older than the others. I searched for the paint online but I guess they discontinued it. I think the Metallic Antique Brass is very similar in color.
I’m being totally serious when I talk about how easy it is to spray paint a small……….or large project. It takes no time at all. There has been a big improvement in canned spray paint over the years. Do you guys know what I’m talking about? Do you use spray paint? What are your favorite colors and brands?
Next week I have a new furniture project to share. I’m going to relax a little and enjoy the holidays. I might even break out my Christmas Vacation cd (insert Kathy smiley face).
