Our Metallic Paint Collection is used the world over for a multitude of surfaces and one of the most popular colors is Warm Silver. It adds a bit of warmth to the coolness of silver without losing its personality and works well with so many design styles. It is an opaque color which means it provides excellent coverage without tarnishing — no wonder it’s one of our best sellers! We thought we’d showcase a few projects from our friends with this very versatile hue.
Metallic Paint always looks amazing on ceilings! Here, DIYer Pamela from PB&J Stories rolled the Warm Silver Metallic Paint in a chevron stripe pattern for her little girl’s nursery. It’s so fun, elegant and unexpected — we love it! Be sure to see more of this beautiful space in Pamela’s post on using metallic paint for a nursery ceiling.
You can also use metallic paint to stencil. Depending on your design goal, you can soften the pattern with the metallic paint like decorative artist Tiffany Alexander did above. Or, make it a strong focal point as decorative painter Kari Caldwell did with the allover stencil pattern below. Both are equally lovely uses of the Warm Silver metallic paint and yet so different. Gotta love that versatility!
Of course, our Metallic Paint Collection is not just for walls and ceilings…
One of the best ways to transform and reinvigorate a light fixture is to simply paint it with metallic paints. Chandeliers and sconces are a popular choice and painting the ceiling medallions that surround and enhance a light fixture will yield gorgeous results as well. Here, Stephanie Jones from Me & Mrs. Jones did a DIY makeover with a rusted, old candelabra by using Warm Silver Metallic Paint. The results were so pretty, she used them for her daughter’s wedding reception. Now that’s trash to treasure.
Warm Silver Metallic Paint — any of the colors in our metallic paint collection, really — can be used to both highlight furniture details and paint the furniture itself to produce a wonderful, lovely shimmer. Artist Peter Panagiotakakos of European Faux Finishes embellished the standing sink above — doesn’t the Warm Silver look perfect against the rich wood? Our friend Jennifer from The Magic Brush says her most talked-about furniture finish is created with an aged Warm Silver and you can spy it below. Just gorgeous.
Has our Warm Silver lighted your imagination with possibilities? We hope so! Of course, our Metallic Paint Collection has over a hundred color choices for you to choose from that look spectacular on so many surfaces — you really can’t go wrong!
