A SHIMMERY GLITZ EXTRAVAGANZA! HERE ARE 25 STUNNING METALLIC PAINTED FURNITURE IDEAS TO SPARK YOUR CREATIVITY ALONG WITH 10 EASY TIPS TO GET THIS GLAM FINISH!
Do you love the shimmer of gold, bronze, silver, zinc, and copper as much as I do?
As much as I LOVE metallics, I don’t get to paint many. Unfortunately, they are not big sellers around here. The few pieces I have painted sat around for months before I had a buyer and even then, I reduced the price and barely made a profit. I don’t know if it’s because us Canadians are more conservative than our friends south of the border – I mean let’s face it – you Texans have the glitz market cornered and these metallics down to a fine art!!! – or if it’s because there’s a smaller niche for shimmery furniture?… not sure…but it’s a super hot look and worth giving another try.
In the meantime, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites for you!

I know metallics are looked upon as a ‘trend’ but I prefer to see them as A CLASSIC. They’ve been around for centuries in one way or another. In fashion, home decor, makeup, and accessories, these shimmery looks are glitzy and elegant… and they make quite a statement on furniture and home decor!
As I mentioned, although I haven’t been painting full-on metallic makeovers, I love using them for hardware, highlighting and details… couldn’t live without them!
