Adding a little zest to your home with fast DIY projects is super easy with Modern Masters Metallic Paints! Of course, you can transform walls, ceilings, furniture and much more with the metallic paint collection, but sometimes a quick weekend project is all it takes to add a fab update to your home. Some of our friends have inspiring design ideas that we thought we’d share with you. Read on!
First things first: Curb Appeal. Susan Penning from Living Rich on Less transformed hers by using Copper Penny Metallic Paint on both her exterior house lights and the beautiful ‘copper’ planter that now greets you at her home. Be sure to check out her Light Fixture Transformation Tutorial as well as her Flower Pot Redo How-to. So pretty!
Adding metallic highlights to furniture or carved wood adds such an elegant touch. The water base metallic paints dry quickly and you can blend several shades together as well as artist Andrea Blair Murrill did above. Angie from Postcards from the Ridge went another route, preferring to accent and update her hardware with a fresh coat of shimmery English Brown metallic paint as seen below. The metallic paints come in a variety of colors so that you can choose the perfect shade to transform any hardware that has seen better days.
Want a fun idea? Try painting the inside of a lampshade like Cassie of Hi Sugar Plum did with Gold Rush Metallic Paint above. The metallic lined lampshades add interest during the day and casts a warm, inviting glow at night. Of course, you can always paint the lamp itself for a dazzling result. The lamp base below was given a shimmery makeover by Jessica of Decor Adventures using our Pale Gold Metallic Paint.
Jessica from Decor Adventures also used the same quart of Pale Gold Metallic Paint to update a mirror frame. This technique works great for picture and art frames, too. Jessica shares that one of her favorite things about our metallic paint is that “it comes in so many colors and all can be combined to create your own shades”.
Jane Sanders Drew of the Creative Finishes Studio used Pharaoh’s Gold Metallic Paint to stencil in a design on a tri-fold floor screen. Lovely, isn’t it? We like how she outlined the pattern in black to pop both the pattern and the gold.
Stylist extraordinaire Kara Paslay is a BIG fan of Modern Masters metallic paint and uses all kinds of different shades for her fun, innovative projects. Here she brings a touch of drama to an otherwise boring white bookshelf with pops of Olympic Gold Metallic Paint on the back.
Are you looking around your home and seeing decor accents that could use a little metallic paint love? We hope we’ve inspired your creativity with these ideas!
