Creating a custom painted look that brings out a unique style to older, uninspired furniture has never been easier – or more fun! We’d like to share how Modern Masters has helped a few of our blogger friends to do just that with both our Metallic Paint Collection and Metal Effects patina products for their painted DIY projects. Let’s take a closer look!
The striking red of this beautifully detailed desk was given the perfect touch of metallic brilliance by Lisa of Southside Furniture Revival. They used Modern Masters Pale Gold Metallic Paint for the ornate desk details and the project was featured in the Furniture Flippin’ blog. Lisa shares that this desk was a Craiglist find and originally looked as it it had sat weathering for years in front of a window. If it could, we think this desk would appreciate its beautiful second chance!
Simply Jessica Marie shared her easy-peasy metallic paint makeover on a polka-dot mini bar cart! By adding just a touch of Olympic Gold Metallic to paint the polka dots, Jessica gave this piece a touch of whimsy — it’s sure to be a fun crowd-pleaser. She lives in in a little apartment and so this mini sized bar cart is perfect for entertaining in her space — we think it’s a fab painted furniture project for her planned Valentine’s Day party, too!
This funky and eclectic wardrobe by A to Z Custom Creations offers an array of colorful finishes, including a patina finish on the wardrobe door with Modern Masters Metal Effects in Copper and Bronze Reactive Metallic Paints. The real metal particles in the reactive patina paints gave an authentic weathered look when combined with our patina aging solutions!
Home accessories can be the perfect way to bring your personal touch into a space as Amanda of Dreamsicle Sisters shared with her Metallic Picture Frame Gallery! Venetian Blue, Rose, Brass, and Champagne metallic paints were all used for this wonderful combination of metallic painted frames and provide the perfect pop of color, too! The frames were all Goodwill finds and after painting them, Amanda arranged them artfully over her daughter’s lovely headboard. What a great idea!
The dark metallic shimmer of Smoke Metallic Paint works beautifully with the bold red of this striking painted hutch and gives all of the iron work the perfect highlight to shine! It wasn’t in the original plans to use metallic but as soon as Angela of A to Z Custom Creations started working on this piece for a repeat client, she knew the original hardware needed to match better with the new aged red – and it was our metallic paint to the rescue! She has a great eye and we love the results!
By using Modern Masters Metallic Paints and Metal Effects products, these artists were able to bring just the right amount of color and shimmer to their projects with very little effort! We hope you’ve been inspired to give your next project a little something extra and if so, feel free to share it with us on our Facebook Fan Page as we love to discover and share new works of art.
