DIY Metallic Finish with Spray Paint on Wood

This  is a project I completed back in summer.  I never got around to posting it earlier,
but now that it's freezing outside, it's a good time to get it posted now.

I started off with these cute, wooden, white pillar columns, on the right.

Yep, they were fine like they are but I needed something darker so they'd stand out better in my lighter themed booth. And to make a more bold statement.

So I decided to give them a bronzed, metallic finish by just using Rustoleum's spray paint in Metallic, below.

One coat was all it took.  And i actually has a good, thick coating to it.  Even the grooves in the wood all took the paint good the first time.

All and all they turned out pretty good and just what I was going for.
I will be able to sit things on these that need some good attention drawn to them.
And I'm sure they will get it.

I definitely think the almost $4.00 I spent on the can of Rustoleum Metallic Spray paint was worth it.
And oh yea, one can did both of them in a good, thick coating.
Just think of the things you could use this paint on for your crafting!

See ya'll next time,


  1. Perfect to make a feature out of something.

  2. I would never have thought of using metallic on wood. I will have to try it. I am a spray paint nut in the summertime, I love your blog.
