Beautiful and feminine. The color of Universal Metallic Vintage Gold puts an inviting bed and breakfast style onto your bedroom pieces. This easy DIY project makes it simple to update existing items such as a headboard and footboard, a mirror, wire bird cages, picture frames and wall hooks.

PREP: Be sure to clean all items so they are free from dust, dirt and any other debris. Cover your work area with a drop cloth to ensure a clean space. Use painter's tape to tape off any spots you don't want to paint on each item. Shake your can of spray paint for one minute after the mixing ball releases. 

PAINT: Hold your can of spray paint 8-12" from the surface and apply light coats of spray paint, waiting a few minutes between each coat to ensure even coverage. 

DRY: Let the spray paint dry for 1 hour before handling and a full 24 hours before use.

TIP: Recoat within 1 hour or after 48 hours.
