Modernize A Rustic Finial

I am so excited to be back with another thrift store find and show you how I modernized a rustic finial.  If you have visited my blog before you know I love a rustic, modern and  elegant flair all put together.  Our master bedroom was in need of a little modern accent on top of our very rustic armoire and I found the perfect finials at a local thrift store.  I actually loved the finials and am sure I could have used them anywhere in the house but since they were so cheap I decided to have some fun with them!

I decided to spray paint them, it is an easy and affordable way to spruce up pretty much anything.

I went with Several thin coats versus one thick coat to help prevent drips.

Since the surface was metal, I did not prime them because of the oil based nature of spray paints, I simply wiped them down with a damp rag.   I would definitely prime if the product was glossy or wood fiberglass, terra cotta, or plastic.
