Every time I do this faux finish and post it on Facebook, you all go ga-ga!!!!  It’s gorgeous, isn’t it??

We do this finish over and over on bedroom furniture and I am going to tell you how to do it today!

102313 094 300x200 My most talked about furniture finish and a Modern Masters Giveaway!

First,  you will need to prep your furniture by cleaning, using a liquid deglosser on it and sanding the pieces well.  The better the prep; the better the durability so take your time on this!

Then, I have the the paint store tint a latex primer appropriate for furniture to a color similar to Sherwin Williams “Latte”.  Roll that on.

Next, we paint the furniture with Modern Masters Warm Silver.  It’s a silver….but like the name implies, it’s warm.  So sometimes it looks champagne almost….truly beautiful!!  We use the lowest nap roller we can find in the 4 inch size.  Try not to overwork the rolling or you will see lap lines because it’s a metallic.  Chip the crevices and roll everything you can. It will probably take 2 coats of metallic for perfect coverage!

Let dry.

Next, we glaze over the entire thing with a black glaze…you can use Modern Masters Black Pearl color mixed with a clear glaze.  Or, I just used a black glaze that I already had that wasn’t metallic.  Either way, be sure to wipe the glaze back a bunch so it just sticks mainly in the cracks.  We use cheesecloth to do all of our wiping.

The glaze is what gives the furniture finish all of the dimension!!! See how it hangs up in all of the detailing? I love it!

Finally, if you want great protection for your furniture, I suggest Modern Master’s Masterclear in a satin sheen!  It’s an awesome topcoat!

We often spray the original furniture pulls/handles with black primer and black spray paint.

And it always turns out gorgeous!!!

  1. This finish would be great for an old Cracker Barrel door turned hiback seating bench I built this summer. It has a light base coat of paint and has just been patiently waiting in my garage for inspiration to make it beautiful.

  7. Thank you so much for this. I’ve been searching for a way to create this look: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/407435097510444272/
    and I think you’ve got it. Warm is the trick. Since I’m a total amateur I don’t know what “chip the crevices” means. I know what crevices are though! It doesn’t google so would you please enlighten? Thank you, many blessings.
