My husband and I found this nice metal wall hanging at an estate sale. I have been looking for something to put on my kitchen wall ever since we repainted it. I love the designs on it but it was in need of some TLC. It was rusting and pieces were flaking off both on the front and back. First I scraped off all the areas that had loose pieces and sanded it lightly. Then I painted it Sherwin Williams Empire Gold – made into chalk paint. This is the same color as my dining room which is close to where I will have this in my house. I only had to paint one coat because I really wanted the original black to show from underneath. Then I distressed it which is very easy to do on metal pieces. Then I put on clear wax, let it dry and then antiqued it with dark wax. This was one of the easiest projects I have done in a long time.
