Metallic Paint Project {Martha Stewart Metallic Paint}

The wonderful people from Martha Stewart sent me a paint kit filled with fantastic items:

…..a Paint Finish Tool Kit

…..Metallic Paint in Golden Pearl

…..and the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine.

Needless to say, when they asked if I would consider doing a paint project for them…

… took me a millisecond to decide!!

I have a cabinet in the dining room that contains my supply of candles and candlesticks…

… needed a facelift…a shiny new look…some bling…with “pearls”…


It looks like as though it has been brought back to life with a gorgeous glow.


Here was the before…it had an Old World aged look…

…..and with the help of the following:



and mainly this:


I was able to turn the cabinet into a shining star!


I kept the raised design of the “leaf and vine” motif….

…..just painted around it.


The paint went on very well and I just love the finish.


The name of the paint is Golden Pearl…and it is exactly what you would expect of a beautiful pearl finish.


So I thank the folks from Martha Stewart Living…

…..for giving me the opportunity to give this cabinet a makeover…


So that she can go to “The Ball”…

…..wearing “Golden Pearls” and glass slippers!!

Have a wonderful day!!

  2. Wow! That turned out just beautifully! I would not have thought to put the pealized paint on the whole piece but I really like how it turned out. Great job.

    Like the new look that the paint (and painter) gave to the console, but I’m loving your new header. How come I’m having the same problem as the above poster and am unable to capitalize?

  9. Nice job, little Martha! (No capitals here, either) what a great improvement! I’m so over the “old world” look and this is such a beautiful fresh look! Great job on the gold filigree, too. did you use rub n’ buff for that?

    • Barb..i just painted around the leaf and vine pattern…left is as is…but this metallic paint can certainly be used as a sort of rub and buff!

  10. You did a great job giving the cabinet a whole new look. Painting around all those details must have been a lesson in patience. 🙂

  25. Looks beautiful! I tried the gold on a night stand I wanted to re-do, however, the paint doesn’t cover. Not sure why… I thought anything Martha sold was going to be perfection. I’m so glad your cabinet turned out so well.

  33. The cabinet turned out beautiful, love the pearly tone to it now. I’ve purchased some of Martha’s Metallic paint but not in that color. Might have to get some next time I’m at Hobby Lobby if they have the Golden Pearl in stock.

  40. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

  41. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between
    user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done
    a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on
    Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!

  42. Oooohhh, I really like this paint. I want to paint a drop down secretary desk that is in a bedroom niche and I use it successfully as my vanity. Chalk paint seemed too boring, but I know now I will use Martha Stewart metallic. Thanks for the inspiration.

  43. You may also want to call your Insurance Agent who can assist
    in referring a qualified Contractor to do the immediate emergency repair.
    If your contractor won’t be out for a day or two,
    you can put a bandage on your leaking roof.
    Brush the fume baffles and inside the stove clear of dust and creosote and shovel this
    into the cardboard box along with the gloves and face mask.
