A Metallic Finish can unify pieces for a complete look
Old pieces can look fresh and new again with just a little paint and effort, and can even create a set from previously unrelated pieces. Just take a look at this cabinet and oil painting that were headed for the attic. The painting was one of my favorites, but although the previous gold, accented, frame worked nicely with my old paint scheme, it was really clashing with my current gray tones.
The cabinet, prior to this makeover, had a disjointed look to it. It looked as if it couldn’t make up its mind on which style it wanted to be – farm house or modern. The cabinet itself was a simple wooden frame with tin inserts in the door and sides. The frame was black (good for me) and the tin inserts were painted a yellow with rust red accenting.
