Faux Aged Steel Cabinet

Welcome Paint Lovers…

Tricia @ Simplicity in the South submitted her faux aged steel cabinet.


She used plain chalkboard paint, silver craft paint and Annie Sloan’s Soft Dark wax to transform her son’s Ikea PS cabinet into an industrial style locker cabinet. She was inspired by the Vintage Industrial Steel Cabinet from Restoration Hardware. The finishing details are the faux rivet on the corners.  Such a cool piece!

Faux Mirror

Welcome Paint Lovers…

Kim @ Reposhture submitted her beautiful faux mirror.

Power of Paint

She found an old Last Supper photo with a to die for frame at the local thrift. The photo was in bad shape but the frame was not. She removed the picture, said a prayer and painted the glass with Krylon Looking Glass paint. She distressed it a bit using spray bottle, dark Oil-rubbed Bronze spray paint and sandpaper.

Greek Dresser and Ugly Duckling

Welcome Paint Lovers…

Kelly @ Jax Does Design submitted her updated IKEA dresser.

PoP Jax Does Design

She took an Ikea RAST dresser and added some Greek key O’verlays and created a faux zinc on the drawers. She applied the Greek key O’verlays to the drawer fronts using Krazy Glue. Then she primed the drawers with Zinnser Bin primer and then painted them with Tremclad flat paint in black. Then she applied Rub N Buff in pewter with a cloth and rubbed it onto the drawer fronts. To give the “zinc” a softer look, she used a pouncer brush to apply DecorArt Elegant Finish Metallic Paint in Shimmering Silver on top of the Rub N Buff. A gorgeous transformation!


Daena @ Bad Rabbit Vintage submitted her Ugly Duckling Cabinet.

She started with an ugly duckling cabinet that use to be part of a vanity. She used plain old craft paint – the kind in the 3 oz. bottles for this project in black and metallic bronze.  A fun, whimsical makeover!
