Antiqued Silver Table

A few weeks ago, I shared this metallic paint with antique glaze finish side table on Craftionary.  I found this  table at a garage sale for $5.00.  It was faux painted in a wood/brown color.  I really had no idea what I was going to do with it, but the price was great.
Here you can see the texture on the top.
I applied spray paint primer and then I gave it a couple of coats of Rustoleum's Metallic Silver spray paint.  Here it is all nice and shiny.
I then used Valspar's antiquing glaze and gave it a light rub down.  I'm not a fan of heavy glazing, but I wanted some dimension to the piece.   I used a tutorial by Little Miss Penny Wenny (you must see the chair she did) and it worked out great.
Here you can see the top.  The glazing added some depth to the top. 
It gave the table a whole new life and it was such a simple fix. I painted it and called my sister to the house and she decided it was hers. Have you tried glazing furntiure before?  Are you a fan of heavy glazing? 

I got so much done at work yesterday and I'm totally inspired to keep going. I'll post pictures of my office as soon as it's all put together.  Thanks for all your sweet comments and words of encouragement.
I'll be linking up to these parties

I don't think I've glazed but we did re-do a metal bed with the silver metallic paint and I love it. Nice job!

Allison 8/17/2011  

This turned out gorgeous! I recendly did this, but I like yours much better!!

SHERRY HART 8/17/2011  

Love what you did to this inspired me to go get one I saw at a thrift store yesterday. It had a veneer top so something like this would be perfect!

Jae 8/17/2011  

It looks great! Now I want to try this on a small stool I just got from a garage sale.

Gloria @ A Little Paint 8/17/2011  

Adorable!!! I've painted a lot of furniture, but never used a glaze, mostly because I can never find it in the store. I usually take some burnt sienna acrylic paint and use that as a glaze cause it's free.

mary 8/17/2011  

Wow! Gorgeous! This looks super expensive and exclusive now! One of my favorite furniture makeovers ever J*! xox!

Trissta 8/17/2011  

Oooh! I love the silver! It would make a great addition to a glam retro styled room... Like my office. ;) Great job!

Much Love,

Meghann @ A Lovely Avenue 8/17/2011

The Pennington Point 8/18/2011  

I. Love. It!!! Does the presence of three exclamation points make it clear? love. it.

I recently painted a little dresser with the same Rustoleum and didn't completely love how it turned out. I mean, it's cute, but this has that extra sumpthin'. I am going to glaze it now, even though it's midnight and I'm tired. I can't wait. :) Lisa~

Rust-Oleum Scott 8/18/2011  

This is easily one of the most colorful and fun projects out there. Tremendous job and thank you so much for using Rust-Oleum!

Decor & Harmony 8/18/2011  

Nice very glam! I just purchased a little round gem yesterday, looking forward to making her shine just like yours.

Unknown 8/18/2011

Oooh, you're giving me such hope for a gorgeous table I bought at a yard sale last year. I think silver's the way to go! Just found you through Circle of Bliss!

Annie 8/19/2011  

I love the silver...and how the glazing made it pop so much more! Now if I could find something like this...

Sommer 8/19/2011  

Oooh I love the silver. And the glaze definitely gave it some dimention and tones it down to just the right amount of shine. I would love to have you share this at my VIP party today...

Beth 8/19/2011  

This turned out beautifully!!!! I am a working on my desk/table right now and I just can't find the right way to finish the top. I'm thinking this would look really cool. thanks for idea!

Unknown 8/19/2011  

What a great transformation! I'm a fan of only very light distressing or glazing, if at all. (I prefer clean & classic vs. aged) But the finish you used added a little bit of dimension to the silver. Now that table looks all shiny and new! Beautiful!

Kathryn Griffin 8/19/2011  

Wow! That is absolutely stunning!! Found via Simple Home Life. Pop over for a visit when you get a moment. Tootles, Kathryn

niartist 8/19/2011  

WOW! What a transformation. Oh you give me hope that I can do this myself one day!!!! Really, WOW. I'm bookmarking so I can remember this!!

I love transformations! I just turned my secretary into a bar area in my dining room. I really hope you'll stop by and check it out:

See you soon, I hope!
