DIY Aged Copper Patina Outdoor Table
Welcome to June’s Pinterest Challenge, hosted by My Pinterventures! This challenge is all about not just pinning the things you like, but MAKING IT HAPPEN! For a long time I had this wobbly, raggedy side table. I kept talking about using my Aged Copper Patina Kit (from Modern Masters) to make a DIY Aged Copper Patina Outdoor Table. My Pinspiration can be found here. After much procrastination, I upgraded it earlier in the spring and posted pictures of it in How To Live Big on a Small Porch. I promised a tutorial that never materialized. So, after more procrastination, I am making things happen by writing this post. Procrastinators Unite- tomorrow. Lol.
The Metal Masters Kit comes with a primer, a metallic paint color (I used copper), and an Aging Solution. For an Aged Copper Patina , you use the Green Patina Aging Solution. I used a 1” sponge brush and lots of outdoor sunshine to complete this project.
Clean the outdoor table. Mine was covered in all sorts of debris. Yuck.
Prime your piece. I had to be careful around the tabletop, not to get primer or paint on the glass. The table had a very rusty patina, in its natural state.
When the primer is dry, add the Metallic Copper Paint. It’s so pretty! I almost hated to age it.
Bring your beautiful dog outside while the paint is drying.
Now it’s time to do the fun part! After you’ve rinsed your 1” sponge brush free of paint and primer, brush on the Aged Green Patina Solution. It goes on clear, so you won’t see the aged green look until it dries. That just makes it more mysterious, and fun.
This Aged Copper Patina Herb Garden March Pinterest Challenge was the first successful time (ahem) I used the Modern Masters’ paints. It still looks great, after being outside for several months. The Modge Podge sealed the seed packet papers very nicely!
I hope you enjoyed this month’s Pinterest Challenge!
