I found a black metal coat rack at Marshalls last week for $19.99, a deal that I couldn’t pass up! I loved the style but wasn’t really digging the color, so of course knowing me I thought, no biggie, the color can always be changed. Since I’m giving my foyer a shabby chic makeover I thought it would be a great piece to shabby chic. This is the first time I’ve attempted to distress metal, but I thought it can’t be that different than wood, right? So I put my DIY hat on and got started.
Here is what you will need
- Rustoleum High Gloss Spray Paint
- Metallic Gold Paint
- Ivory White Craft Paint
- Dark Brown Craft Paint
- Sea Sponge
- Metal Coat Rack
Step 1: Sand down the coat rack
Step 2: Wipe the coat rack down and then paint the coat rack in Rustoleum High Gloss Spray Paint
Step 3: Mix Metallic Venetian Gold, Snow Titanium White and Dark enamel Brown
Step 4: Using a sponge apply paint to coat rack
Step 5: Once it dries mix Metallic Venetian Gold and Snow White with a tiny bit of dark brown and apply it to the coat rack
Step 6: Sand the coat rack along the edges and any other area you want to look distressed
And there you have it, a Shabby Chic Metal Coat Rack
I hope you enjoyed!!
