I love the look of metallic paint on furniture. It seem the Farmhouse style is taking a turn and I’m seeing more and more color and bling in the mix. Hallelujah! I have arrived! I admit I love to stand out and walk in my own direction and I encourage you to style your home the way you love. Be you, be your own style.

Metallic Paint On Furniture

Using metallic paint on furniture can really make a statement when you're looking for that wow factor. #dododsondesigns #metallicpaintforfurniture #metallicpaint #furnituremakeover #paintedfurnitureThere’s a whole lotta gold going on here!

Before The Applying The Metallic Paint

The after is better than the before! Metallic paint for furniture. #dododsondesigns #metallicpaintforfurniture #metallicpaint #paintedfurniture #furnituremakeoverI’ve had this french provincial dresser waiting patiently her turn for the just the right finish. Because it has a smooth, slick finish already, it’s perfect for metallic paint. I don’t paint just any old piece with metallic paint. It has to be deserving of the work and effort that it takes to make it look amazing.

Modern Masters makes a beautiful line of shimmer paint that looks fabulous when applied the right way to your furniture. This may come as a shock to you, but I painted this dresser with a paintbrush. Looks like a sprayed finish, right? I promise you, you can.

Two of my favorite things... metallic paint and coffee. #dododsondesigns #metallicpaint #loveyourtribeJust thought I’d share 2 of my favorite things. My coffee mug and Warm Silver. Both give me the warm fuzzies. 🙂

Prepping Your Furniture

Warm silver metallic paint on furniture has a beautiful hint of gold. Not too much, just right. #dododsondesigns #metallicpaint Here is my supply list for the job:

I began by sanding and cleaning the whole piece. If you like, I can show you more about prepping your wood furniture before painting here. The finish is only as good as the prep.

Painting Your Furniture

After the prep and cleaning I applied one coat of the Zinsser Tintable Primer. The purpose for tintable is to have it tinted a similar color to your paint. I chose a gray as that was as close as I could get to silver. The metallic paint is opaque so having a similar color as the base coat helps with the coverage.

It took 3 coats for full coverage but the end results are worth it. Modern Master Clear Coat was used to seal the paint and give it a durable finish.

Metallic Paint Has My Heart!

Warm silver metallic paint is a dreamy color with a hint of gold. #dododsondesigns #metallicpaint #paintedfurniture #furnituremakeoverGoing with the gold theme was perfect with the warm silver as it has a hue of gold. I think the combo looks great! I sprayed the original pulls with Rustoleum Bright GOLD spray paint. The knobs are gold mercury glass from my favorite Hobby Lobby store.
