Aged Silver Finish

MY MOM HAD A FRIEND WITH SOME BEAUTIFUL SILVER/GRAY STAINED CABINETS WITH BLACK COUNTERS & FLOORS. THIS IS WHAT I SOMEDAY WANT IN A KITCHEN ... SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE USUAL WOOD STAIN COLORS IN MOST KITCHENS. How to create an aged silver finish using Krylon metallic spray paint. I have an old dresser in the guest room that is dying to be spruced up like this.


Africa | Indigo in West Africa "Cloth beaters at work in the village of Kura near Kano, 2005. After the dyed cloth had dried it was customary to beat the fabric repeatedly with wooden beaters, which both pressed the fabric and imparted a shiny glaze. In some areas additional indigo paste was beaten into the cloth at this stage, subsequently rubbing off on the skin of the wearer in a much desired effect." | Image and caption ©Adire African Textiles
