I’ve been wanting to use this new, wonderful silver spray paint I found on the right piece of furniture. I’ve been looking at end tables and nightstands looking for just the right piece. I’ve already been using this spray paint on lots of different home decor items. I was so happy to find this piece today, it’s exactly what I was looking for. Look at the before picture – it’s totally different. I am so happy with the way this piece turned out! This was a super easy, super fast finish too.

I’m not kidding when I say you can do this silver finish on a small piece of furniture in less than 30 minutes.  I mean I did this in less than 30 minutes with room to spare and the difference is amazing!  I’m so happy with it!

There’s nothing wrong with the before picture, it would be cute in a childs room, but as soon as a saw this nightstand I knew it was exactly what I was looking for to do a silver finish on.  The lines on the side are perfect for a sleek silver finish.  This was one of the easiest furniture pieces I’ve ever done.

Step 1 – Clean – All I did was wipe the piece down with a wet washcloth and dry it, 3 minutes.

Step 2 – Paint – Since the piece was already painted and didn’t feel like it had any wax on it, there was no need to prime it.  I didn’t even remove the knobs.

The silver spray paint I used is my new favorite silver finish.  It’s called “Super Silver” and it’s by Design Master.  I picked it up at Michaels.  It’s the closest finish I’ve found to silver leafing.  

The best thing about this spray paint is that it dries so fast, you can literally start on the second coat by the time you finish the first coat!  I probably spent 15-20 minutes spraying the whole piece (2 coats)!!  That’s it!  The finish turned out smooth and even, but if you do have drips, you can sand them down and quickly paint over them again.  I love this paint!

If you want extra protection, you could spray on a coat of polyurethane, but I don’t think it’s necessary for my piece.
