I can’t believe I haven’t been in touch for over a week! I shared that I have taken on a new job at Strathmore and it has been the typical “new job” learning curve. I am really enjoying it! I’ll share more about myself in another post but today, let’s get back to what will make for a great before and after – and what this blog is all about!
My friend, Michelle and her family just purchased a house right up the street from us and we are so happy to have our good friends as our new neighbors! Michelle has a few pieces of furniture that she needs to change up for their new house. One of these pieces is this basic black console. It is a modern piece and I plan on totally changing the look with metallic paint.
The table has glass inserts for the top and middle shelf. Michelle plans on putting this piece in her foyer. Her wood floors are a golden oak and she doesn’t want the black to contrast with the orange hue of her floors. We are going for a totally new look with DecoArt Metallic paint in Champagne Gold.
I’ve used this metallic paint before on the Winter Metallic Cabinet.
This paint is so easy to apply and gives a beautiful finish. I’ll keep you posted on the progress!
I have really missed seeing your daily posts. I hope you are enjoying your new job! It is now time to go through some of your archives. Thank you for all your sharing all wonderful ideas.
I’ve used the Silver color of this line and found it really tacky after dry. So I waited a few days & wasn’t tacky in the end. I guess it takes more time to cure than their chalky paints. Did you find this also with your gorgeous Winter Metallic Cabinet? Looking forward to seeing this console table finished. Love your tutorials, thanks for sharing.
It looks very nice indeed I may consider using it on one of my grandparents old chairs.
Very nice blog .. great info…keep it up and continue share the good work.
I wonder what happened………. Congratulations; on your new job! I hope that doesn t remove you from the painted furniture business,,, I so love to see your work and appreciate all of your helpful information.
Hi – I really am trying to pull it all together! Now that my new job is not quite so “new” and intensive (as all new jobs tend to be!) I hope to be able to post more of my furniture makeovers. Thanks for hanging in there with me!
