Rustic Glam, What is it?
Rustic Paint finishes have to be my favorite now. And Rustic Glam the best of all with its Rustic Gold Paint! This one is a little bit of gold, a whole lotta bold, made to look kinda old. Its a look that is fun but is easy to incorporate into your home decor.
This unit will cover the all the techniques needed to pull off this look-even in the colors of your choice! Whether you love chalk style paints like my beloved Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint or if you prefer latex paint, you can absolutely pull off this look! I will give you options to purchase the goods you need whether from a local stockist or by linking to Amazon.com were you can buy online!

Paints. I am going blue! however you may opt for a different scheme, You will want a Deep tone, a Med-Light tone and possibly a lighter tone (I used the lighter tone for highlighting although you can likely mix white with either color to create your own highlighter) and likely black or a very deep grey for the antiquing color wash.

I typically don`t like my hardware to look one dimensional. So when there`s an opportunity to take advantage of the antiqued crevices i usually do. For this hardware I chose to use flexible sandpaper to remove the patina from the high points. Then to clean and shine I took a brush and worked in some furniture salve. I then buffed that away with a soft cloth.
