Metallic finishes shimmer indoors and out
Want to brighten up your garden or home, or add some movement and fluidity to a dull space? You can do it very simply and affordably with any of Krylon’s metallic spray paints. Start by looking at fashion magazines, automobiles and even everyday products for inspiration. One of today’s trends, for example, is to pair bright jewel-toned accents with a yellow metallic (gold or brass) to make an object really “pop.” Another is to use a gray metallic (silver, aluminum, brushed nickel) to create a natural yet sophisticated look.
Whether your yard is a small but charming terrace or an enormous lawn fit for a king, consider adding a metal sculpture to make a statement. This is a great project for a do-it-yourselfer. Just grab some long thin metal tubing, sheets of copper and some tin snips and you can create beautiful sunflowers that will flow gently in the summer breeze. Copper is a wonderful color that can give your garden a warm, rustic appearance while enhancing your foliage. Aluminum or silver can create a sleeker, more modern look and give a nod of elegance to your patio.
Dining room tables aren’t the only place to feature a centerpiece; create one for your patio table as well. Paint small river rocks shades of charcoal, silver or nickel and place them in a clear vase as support for fresh flowers. Don’t stop there with your outdoor accessories. You can also use spray paint to add a little flair to planters, patio sets, statues and birdhouses.
If your interior could use some glitz and glamour, think metallic and let your imagination lead the way. Gold, silver, bronze, copper, nickel and platinum are all great colors that work almost anywhere. A metallic set of dining room chairs, a coffee table in a formal living room, muted metallic wall coverings and bedding with metallic stenciling would definitely create some conversation. For subtle elegance, add some metallic leafing detail to the base of an antique lamp or napkin rings. Use a gold or yellow metallic color on a centerpiece to create a bright jewel-tone look. Or paint a picture frame silver/gray metallic to give your space more modern style.
Inside or outside, metallic colors can give any space panache. That’s why Krylon offers such a wide variety of metallic products, including Outdoor Spaces® Metallic Finish, Brushed Metallic, Fusion Metallic Shimmer®, Metallic Leafing Pens, Premium Metallic and General Purpose Metallic. Just look all around and you’ll find the inspiration you need. The only limit is your imagination!
