My Modern Masters Metallic Paint Review

Back a few months ago, I was the winner of the Modern Masters prize for being their 5000th “like” on Facebook.  Boy, was I excited! I mean I love to paint, especially furniture that needs love, so of course I was giddy to receive $250 of product of my choosing.  You can read all about my Modern Masters metallic paint treasure here.

At the time, I was pregnant and it was the dead of winter (like -12 degree highs), so I wasn’t doing much furniture.  I looked over to my stash to ponder which piece would be blessed enough to receive the makeover.
I had just picked one out and it was warming up, but then baby came 6 weeks early.  Surprise!!  So happy to have her with us.

So, after a baby break, I can finally say that I LOOOOVE Modern Masters metallic paints!!!

 Take a look at this cherry library/console table:

Not in too bad of shape with outdated drawer pulls, nicks and scratches to the top, but sound as can be.  AND those legs…I adore the curvy Queen Anne style…so elegant.

After a face-lift, I decided to replace those pulls with a couple of antique etched glass pulls that were left over from this dressing table makeover.  Just some wood putty in the existing holes, and drilled a couple new ones.

The whole table got two coats of warm silver, but I didn’t stop there (although stunning as is).  To give the table bit more definition, I whitewashed the skirt, drawers and legs, leaving some silver to peek out and the top to shine.

Added the pulls to finish it off, and VIOLA!

My next project was a French Provincial Bassett side table.

This was also already in great shape except for wear to the top.  Sanded it down and got started with more of the warm silver.

For the sides and legs I chose a metallic teal to really set off that fabulous silver.

The pulls are beautiful in their original state and compliment the colors well. Don’t you think?
To jazz it up a bit, I added some silver touches to the trim and gave the legs a “dipped” effect.  All topped off with a semi-gloss poly, which they included plus a satin too as an added gift – eek!

So pretty, isn’t it?

Now, I mainly choose the metallic paints for my prize, but Modern Masters also offers plenty of other products to choose from, including their metal effects that have a wonderful reactive property that can cause the tiny bits of metals in the paint to get a patina like this..

I finally got my hands on some and this is what I created – an Art Deco Industrial makeover.

    They look gorgeous Larissa! I used the Modern Masters on a Christmas mantel mirror last year and it looked beautiful!

    That desk is gorgeous with the white-wash effect. I have an old china cabinet that needs the same look as I’m replacing the glass with chicken wire.
    Also love, love, love the dipped legs of the side table!!
