From Pine to Shine

When Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo inherited her parents old bedroom set, she did so with mixed feelings.  It was solid wood and in fantastic shape.  But that wood was pine with a shiny varnish, and that was a look Amanda wasn’t crazy about.  Makeover time!

After seeing pictures of several pieces of furniture that were painted with metallic paint, Amanda knew that was the look she wanted.  She decided to go with a silver metallic finish, that she’d give an aged look so that it would have almost a pewter look.  After painting and glazing the wood and some of the hardware, Amanda had just the look she was going for.
