The Shimmer of Metallic Cream

Another month is coming to an end and that can only mean one thing… it’s time for another amazing Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest!  This month, the wonderful sponsor was Country Chic Paint and our theme was Bling Bling.  FFFC - main graphic (updated 5.11.2016) copyThis month we got to play with their amazing Metallic Creams and they were soo cool!  The Country Chic Metallic Creams have a consistency that reminded me of a rich hand lotion and can be used in so many different ways to add a touch of bling to just about any surface.  (You can see a project I did last week using some I had on hand here). dresser found on the curb before being RecreatedI found this amazing dresser on the side of the road (I know right!) not long ago and despite its dilapidated look, I knew it was perfect for this ugly duckling to blingy swan story 😉Country Chic All-in-one Paint in LiquoriceTo begin its transformation, I painted it with two coats of the Country Chic Paint in Liquorice.  Liquorice is a lovely, deep, matte black and it was perfect for the base.  Country Chic Paint in Liquorice and Metallic Cream in TriggerTo add some bling, while honouring the age and style of the piece, I chose the Trigger Metallic Cream.  I used a brush to apply the Trigger to the top, the front of the top drawer and then down the middle and edges.  It was the perfect amount, and the design of the dresser lent itself beautifully to the Trigger highlighting. using a stencil to add French Script to a black dresserI wanted to do something special to the drawer fronts, but didn’t want them completely covered, so used the Metallic Cream with the [easyazon_link identifier=”B016VJIJ0Q” locale=”US” tag=”recredesig20-20″]Deco Art Americana Decor Stencil, Old French Script[/easyazon_link].  French Script in Country Chic Paint Metallic CreamI am absolutely in love with how well the Metallic Cream and the stencil worked together and the subtle, shimmery enhancement it added was gorgeous.
