"Before and After"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
  • Sandpaper
  • 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
