Some DIY on vintage furniture can be quite rewarding. I found a new product that is reminiscent of the metallic paints from the past I have come to know and love. The painted metallic finish seems to fall out of favour every once in a while until someone creates something spectacular and the trend is back on.
I found this vintage piece at the thrift store and just knew I could turn it into something spectacular. I wasn't exactly sure how but I was feeling pretty confident.
To make the painting process a little easier, I took the table apart and painted it in sections.
A good quality 2" bristle brush is essential.
It is also handy to have a smaller 1" brush for the tight spots.
This is the product I found at the local paint shop. I found it easy to work with and even though it took several coats to cover the dark brown, I did not need to prime and the end result is spectacular. What do you think? I am now working on a stand-alone magazine rack. Once I finish it, I will post more photos.
