How to Add an Antique Gold finish with Rub N’ Buff

Sharing is caring!

You know how trends come and go? I’m not normally one who follows them but this new ” “vintage or aged gold” look is amazing! I’ve found a great gold spray paint that I’ve used to transform a few furniture pieces. The gold spray paint is awesome, but I’ve recently discovered an even easier, cheaper and more effective way to add an aged gold finish to anything! You can even use this stuff on shoes! I want to share how to add an antique gold finish with Rub N’ Buff.

Have you heard? Antique gold finish is in! Not that I do anything based on trends, but I do love this one. As a matter of fact, I’ve transformed a few furniture pieces with a little gold paint.

I transformed an old chair with an antique gold spray paint for a modern vintage look. I used the same spray paint to DIY boho looking hanging planters from the dollar store. I even used to accent a few decor elements in our budget friendly beach cottage mudroom.

I love the look of the antique gold spray paint, but I think I found my new favorite gold product.

I stumbled upon this product at Hobby Lobby the other day while looking for more gold spray paint. It was only $5.99, so I figured I would give it a try. I’m so glad I did. Let me show you the product.

I’m planning my daughters vintage chic bedroom makeover, and a part of the makeover will include aged gold accents or vintage gold tones.

She currently has two  black lamps in her bedroom and a sweet little antique desk and chair I refinished about a year ago. Both of those furniture pieces had a dark finish, and I knew I wanted to add gold accents, but I didn’t want to buy new furniture.

This new product called Rub N’Buff came to the rescue! You can’t beat transforming a few furniture pieces for $5.99!

Y’all this stuff is so easy. I’ve been wanting to add some gold accents around our new rustic beach cottage, but I didn’t want to spend any money.

With a little DIY room decor, I’ve added pops of vintage gold color with these old lamps I almost threw away!

I hope y’all were inspired to create something out of nothing! It doesn’t take a lot of time or money to repurpose or upcycle something that would otherwise be tossed to the side!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Those lamps look like different lamps with the gold spray. I need to start doing more crafts at home and making our things look unique like this. The chest of drawers is amazing too

  3. Hi Lindsey! That’s funny that you were working with Rub ‘n Buff gold this week because I was using it for the first time, too!! You’ll have to check out my first post, Antiquing Furniture with Chalk Paint. I’ll be posting up the follow-up post probably Monday sharing the Rub ‘n Buff on this little nightstand I’ve been working on. Turned out great!!!

    Thanks for sharing all the other metallic paints Amoco carries. I bought the silver, too. It is beautiful on! {You can see the comparison on my Instagram, also from this week.}

    Have a great rest of your weekend and happy painting!!!

  4. I love the difference. It looks so much more attractive. Who would have thought a small change could make such a big difference. Thanks for sharing with us on the Homestead Blog Hop!

  5. I’ve heard a lot about rub and buff. I’ve never tried it myself. But after reading this I think I’m sold on it. Thank you for this! (thesitsgirls)

  6. I’ve used this product for over 30 years. I haven’t purchased any lately and didn’t know it came in anything but gold and silver. It is great for highlighting on dark picture frames or any darker colors.

  7. Looks like an amazing product. I love how the lamps turned out. I used a paint on some hardware recently but, this is a great option I didn’t know about. Thanks for sharing at the inspiration spotlight party @DearCreatives pinned and sharing.
