I have a new best friend, and it is a can of paint.
You’re surprised ?
My friends, I’m here to tell you about a can of semi-gloss that sets my heart awhirl. It’s made by Pratt & Lambert and it’s called ‘Opulence Pearl’ (also available in silver and gold). It can be tinted or used just as it is. Valspar has a comparable product available at Lowes. This version from Pratt & Lambert is a semi-translucent paint that gives just that subtle pearlescent finish that I adore. Like a moth to a flame, any accessory that shines with a mother of pearly finish and I go gaga. (Hence, the recent vintage case purchase.)
“Hello, my name is Kate and I’m addicted to shimmer finishes.”
I wanted to try it out on a few pieces before using it in a larger project. Take a peek at these $5 dollar Goodwill finds transformed with two coats of white paint, and two coats of Opulence Pearl.
