Silver Birdies

Still working on my accessories for my powder room.  I have this cast iron bird bath with 2 little birdies perched on the rim.  I had them painted a chippy white.  A remnant of my shabby chic days.  

I sprayed it with chrome metallic paint.  Not quite the look I was going for.  I then applied black acrylic paint to the entire piece.  I did small sections at a time.  I then wiped the excess paint, leaving some in the crevices.  Now it looks like pewter.  Perfect!!!  

I'm using it to hold a small candle.  Looks great in my powder room.
