Metallic Wine Cabinet Makeover

A couple of weeks ago I bought this old wine cabinet from my sister’s friend. It was in pretty good condition, I just wasn’t fond of the finish. So I decided to jazz it up with some Modern Masters metallic paint.

Modern Masters suggests a primer like Zinsser 321 Bull’s Eye, but I wanted to mix the Graphite color with the Modern Masters Warm Silver so I just decided to paint the whole piece in it first.

    This turned out so pretty! I adore Modern Masters fine crackle (two-step process). It is actually a three-step process, but Annie Sloan dark wax finishes it off beautifully. I am going to look for this warm silver, it is a great neutral. And yes, the results are always classy with the Modern Masters – I feel like I could do a commercial for these people – LOL.
