So, if we don’t change our name to “Clocks R Us”, we will certainly need to change it to “House of Metallics.” Not only does today’s project feature those shiny glimmering tones, but I picked up 5 pieces for a client the other day (Hi, Dianne!!) who would like them done in a palette of (you guessed it) metallics!! I, for one, can’t get enough. Hopefully you agree with me and will keep on reading. :)
If you remember, I picked up this great, heavy pair of nightstands a small while ago for $10 a piece. I was drawn to their fantastic pulls and bun feet.
I stripped the tops down with a heavy grit sandpaper and my handy dandy palm sander, primed the base with Bulls Eye 1 2 3 Primer from Zinsser, spray painted the base with Brushed Metallic Carmel Latte from Krylon (a lovely champagne gold color), gave it an antiquing glaze of burnt umber, stained the tops using Dark Walnut Minwax Gel Stain, and sealed the tops with Satin Finish Verathane. I think they look like a million bucks!
Watch out!! I’m like Midas. Everything I touch turns to gold. ;)
