Brass Matte Metallic Paint on Mirror Frame by May Richer Fuller Be | Modern Masters

Brass Matte Metallic Paint helps May Richer Fuller Be transform a bathroom! Modern Masters Blog Feature.

Chaney of the blog May Richer Fuller Be had a purple bathroom and wanted a change to a light, bright design. First up, paint it all white – but then the ‘boring white medicine cabinet mirror’ blended right into the background. She decided to make it a focal point by painting it with Brass Matte Metallic and then adding a beautiful, painterly focal wall treatment. Looks lovely, Chaney!

Having a turquoise dresser chest was once working with her design, but Debbie of My Patch of Blue Sky needed to change it up to a softer, more sophisticated finish. She used Pale Gold Matte Metallic and Platinum Metallic Paint to create a subtle tone-on-tone with both color and sheen. See her painted metallic dresser tutorial for all the details.

Incredible bath transformation with the help of Oyster Pearl and Brass Matte Metallics | Stencil: Royal Design Studio | Project by Bella Tucker Decorative Finishes

Dana and Brooks Tucker of Nashville’s Bella Tucker are no strangers to change – they are a pro decorative painting studio. Transforming their own bathroom was a happy challenge for them and one they tackled with the help of Matte Metallics. First, they painted a base of Brass Matte Metallic on all the walls and when dry, stenciled the Rockin’ Roses Stencil by Royal Design Studio with Oyster Matte Metallic. Doesn’t it look amazing? See their entire process as well as their top bathroom storage tips in their bathroom makeover story.

Fall Table Decor Ideas with Matte Metallics

The fall season is almost upon us and so is decorating the home for family, friends and the upcoming holidays. There’s something so inviting about warm Autumn colors and we enjoy seeing them incorporated in great DIY and Design ideas. Although there are many design elements to the fall season, one of the most popular is finding creative inspiration for unique twists on the traditional table setting.  We’d love to share a few ideas with you created with our Matte Metallics! The Matte Metallics are a line of 15 of our most popular metallic paint colors with a soft, shimmery glow. They compliment the higher shimmer of the regular Metallic Paint Collection. Let’s take a look at how to set a stylish table with them!

Painting Pumpkins with Metallic Paint and CrystalsA perennial DIY classic is to paint pumpkins but here’s an idea to take it up a notch! Paint pumpkins, gourds and squash with Matte Metallics and add crystals, jewels and even glitter to give them an updated, glam feel. The beautiful luster of the metallic paint makes for an alluring table centerpiece that adds a soft glow during an evening event.

Let’s face it – we all have that gift wrap that we’re not sure we’ll use again. Just roll on the color on either surface (here, were are using Blackened Bronze) and let dry. Voila! Of course, you can leave it as is for a very chic look or keep adding other metallic colors and patterns to your taste.

To keep with the dashing look of our table, we again used the Blackened Bronze Matte Metallic with a stencil brush and the Bella Madrid Stencil from the Artistic Painting Studio. After stenciling the napkins and plate chargers as well, we set out our tony Modern Masters table inspired by the Matte Metallics. Are you joining us for dinner?
