Gorgeous Range Hoods with Modern Masters

The kitchen has always been one of the most important spaces in any home. At the center of our beloved kitchen is the often overlooked range hood, an important feature which can easily be transformed with the use of paints, plasters and patinas. Of course, its main function is to absorb odors, airborne grease and smoke but it can also have a much more aesthetic purpose – to serve as an excellent focal point to beautify the kitchen! We share a few examples of some of our favorite range hoods and how Modern Masters has helped bring these wonderful pieces to life with customized finishes that provide a crowning touch. Let’s take a look!

This range hood was finished with Modern Masters Metal Effects in a rust finish along with copper foil | By Carmen Illustrates | Modern Masters Cafe blog

This range hood received a fantastic finish with our Metal Effects Iron Reactive Paint by Carmen Illustrates. The rust created with the real metal particles in our reactive paint was beautifully enhanced with the use of copper foils. The result is a striking accent piece that complements the rustic wood tones of this kitchen!

Modern Masters Red Russet Metallic Plaster was used for this beautiful range hood | By Craig Getty Painting | Modern Masters Cafe blog

Modern Masters Metallic Plaster works perfectly with the natural wood cabinetry of this inviting kitchen. Craig Getty Painting used our Espresso, Suede and Red Russet metallic plasters to create a subtle, shimmery finish for this range hood. What a great way to top off this space!

Modern Masters Metal Effects helped transform this unique range hood | By Broads with Brushes

Broads with Brushes embellished this range hood with the use of color glazes and our Metal Effects in order to tie in the colors of this fabulous kitchen! Doesn’t it look great against the rich, dark wood and tiled backsplash? We love the work of Andrea Blair Murrill and her team!

We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how the range hood can play an important part in your kitchen’s design by serving as functional art! Do you have one that may benefit from a little color? If so, which design style would you prefer?

It’s always a pleasure to see some of the amazing work created with our product lines. Be sure to catch more inspiration on our Facebook fan page and Pinterest boards. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

DIY Painted Furniture with Modern Masters!

Creating a custom painted look that brings out a unique style to older, uninspired furniture has never been easieror more fun!

A beautiful red desk with detail work accented in Modern Masters Pale Gold Metallic Paint | By Southside Furniture Revival via Furniture Flippin'

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!

Picture frame makeover with Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection | By Dreamsicle Sisters

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!

 Hutch makeover accented with Modern Masters Smoke Metallic Paint | By A to Z Custom Creations

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.
