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 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 result in 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.

You can purchase all the Dixie Belle Products I used by CLICKING HERE! See the colors I used below.

I used Chalk Couture to create the wording on the sign with their silkscreen 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 is that easy! When I’m ready I’ll apply a new quote or a cute picture. So fun!

Guess what? This dresser lives in my bedroom. Yep, it never left my house. It happens when you paint as much as I do. Do you have this problem too? Drop me a comment so I don’t feel so alone. I’d love to hear from you.

Until the next project… xo, Do
