I wanted to create a statement piece without being too over the top. I knew that General Finishes Lamp Black would work perfect for the look I was going for. I sanded the piece and then applied two coats of paint. I sealed the base with wax, however went with polyurethane for the top for extra protection and extra shine.

After polishing the hardware, it still wasn't quite as shiny as I wanted. I sprayed it with a coat of Rustoleum Metallic Gold. The gold hardware really creates a sophisticated and polished look.

Gold accents and accessories are so popular right now, making this hardware trendy and classic at the same time.
