One of our friends and bloggers, Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule, recently did a table makeover that fully embodies the term “drab to fab”. Using our Metallic Paint Collection, she took a $3 thrift store furniture find and transformed it completely with a two-color paint finish and a beautiful hand-drawn compass rose. Want to know more? Let’s go!
Oh, it looks sad, doesn’t it? Nancy saw a diamond in the rough with this table – even though it had glue and nail polish on it! She sanded and chipped away at the residue and then used a spray primer in white to finish her prepwork.
Nancy loved both the Warm Silver and Oyster Metallic Paint colors and used them to paint the legs, body and top of the table. Once those were dry, she drew a compass rose with chalk on the center of the round table top and painted it in with the Oyster.
The results are gorgeous! Nancy loved working with our metallic paints and says painting with them was like “buttah” – love that! Be sure to check out the full tutorial of her metallic paint table makeover as she shares more tips on working with our metallic paints and creating the compass rose, too. We hope you’ve been inspired today to tackle a metallic paint project as well and feel free to share your results with us!
