Before & After: A Tin-Foiled Nightstand

Vintage Revivals

Silver metallic furniture pieces have been on the scene for a while now and don't seem to be heading out anytime soon. Mandi wanted to try her hand at creating one without a trusty silver spray can in hand but using a common kitchen goods instead. See what she pulled off after the jump...

At first I was skeptical, but by the end of her tutorial I was thoroughly impressed. She didn't just glue on some tin foil and call it a day (which probably wouldn't do the trick). She put a quick layer of steel paint by Sophisticated Finishes on and quickly wiped it off to give some color changes and variations to the piece. Mandi then finished it off with the same technique using Ralph Lauren's Faux Glaze in Black Silk. The result gave a more tarnished and weathered look to the piece accenting corners and crevices throughout.
