The planning and designing for my daughters room is finally underway. The theme for her room is going to be a mermaid, under the sea theme. She loves mermaids and is so excited to get her room all put together. When Deco Art approached me about trying out their Metallics line of paint I knew it was going to be just what I needed to get started on her room! You can now find the Metallics line of Deco Art paint at your nearest Hobby Lobby! Yet another reason to shop at Hobby Lobby!
After looking through the different shades of metallic paint I decided on Pearl.
I had a hard time capturing the luster of this paint, but let me assure you that while it does have grey undertones it definitely lives up to its name and takes on a pearl color effect.
My little girl loves to play dress up. She has an entire bin of dresses and necklaces, dress up princess heels, hats, gloves, you name it. She recently used some birthday money to buy herself a hair styling play set of brushes, hair straightener and blow dryer. The one thing that she was missing was a place to sit and play with her things. So I set out on a mission to find her a cute little table to use as a vanity. I would have loved to find an antique vanity dresser with the large mirror on it, but alas no one was selling any of those in my town. A vanity of that size would have taken up a large part of her room as well. I came across this adorable table while out one day.
Its cute curves and tiny little pull outs won me over, and it seemed to be just the right height and size. At $30 this little solid wood table was a great deal!
Now that I had my table all I had to do was add the paint!
I wanted more of a metallic overlay to the table and not a solid metallic looking table. So I did a dry brush technique to the table and added the pearl metallic paint over top of the white paint that is already on the table.
The table has the perfect amount of shine to it so that it looks like a pearl!
I am still on the hunt for the perfect little bench or chair to go with the table.
I am thinking about painting her dresser and nightstand the same way! They desperately need to be painted. They got a little banged up from when we moved.
I love the way that it turned out!
It is the perfect tone for an under the sea mermaid room don’t you think!?
