DIY Metallic paint with antique glaze
Hi Craftionary readers, I’m here from JandJHome. I was so excited when Hani asked me to come over here. And write a guest post.
I love finding new friends and blogs to read. I’m a School Psychologist by day. And a DIYer by night.
I love all things DIY, crafts. And repurposing thrift store and garage sale finds.
I’m excited to be here to share a redo of a $5.00 garage sale find.
It’s not a bad looking table, but I was not loving the finish.
I’ve been repurposing a bunch of items for my sister’s apartment. And I thought the size of this side table was perfect.
I applied spray paint primer. And then I gave it a couple of coats of RustOleum’s Metallic Silver spray paint.
Here it is all nice and shiny.
I then used Valspar’s antiquing glaze and gave it a light rub down.
I’m not a fan of heavy glazing, but I wanted some dimensions to the piece.
And that’s how simply this table became super cool, with faux mirrored metallic paint and antique glazing.
Hani, Thank you so much for having me here. And I hope you all come by and say Hi.
I’m always working on something.
Thanks for the amazing technique to give new life to old forgettable furniture and things.
