The V Spot
 In case you missed our post here is another before and after!
We got this piece for FREE!

I have been dying to try this technique.  I just love the look.
I thought this piece would be perfect with all of the details.

I used this "aluminum" paint by Rust-oleum.  Its very smelly, but I
just love that you apply with a paint brush.

I then aged it with some glazing.
I used Ralph Lauren glaze tinted with "expresso bean." 

I love how it turned out.   So next time you see one of these glorious
70's pieces don't walk past or drive by this curb alert!!


  1. wonderful job and thank you for pointing out the products that you used to achieve the painted finish effect. This is a great way to modernize that 1970s look - totally fabulous!

  2. Hey, Amy and Emily. Check out my new post, inspired by you!
