How I Painted A Metallic Finish With A Putty Knife

Who would paint a metallic finish on furniture with a putty knife? *waving hand in the air* Why not? Well, I didn’t actually paint it with a putty knife, but I did use it to create a silver grunge metallic finish. Sometimes it’s the most unusual combos that results in the the greatest finishes.

To begin with, anytime I’m creating a new finish or trying out a new technique, I like to use repurposed cabinet doors. The cabinet doors are about $2- $3 at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. HELLO! I’ll paint signs all day long for that price.

Here’s Ya Sign… Silver Grunge Metallic Finish

I think it speaks for itself. Want to learn more about Chalk Couture? CLICK HERE TO WATCH A QUICK DEMO!

I used Chalk Couture to create the wording on the sign with their silk screen transfer. The white chalk paste lettering I applied just wasn’t showing up on top of the metallic, so a quick wipe off with a paper towel and water and a new black paste was applied. It really that easy! When I’m ready. I’ll apply an new quote or cute picture. So fun!
