Today I’m going to show you the products I used to paint a worn out French nightstand that I found at a local auction! This easy, silver metallic paint technique gave me the shimmery silver finish I was hoping for!

I used Modern Masters Metallic Paint for this piece. This was my first time using this paint. I purchased two six oz. jars and used less than half for this project! I used about 1/2 the jar of the Snowflake and just a little of the Silver! A little really goes a long way. The Modern Masters paints are labeled “opaque” or “semi-opaque”. The Silver shade is an opaque and the Snowflake (a shimmery white) is a semi-opaque. I mixed these two together to get the silver finish I hoped for! It’s an 80% Snowflake to 20% Silver mix.
