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’m planning my daughters 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.

  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

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!!!

  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.
