  • WELCOME to House of Rumours…

    Hi! I'm Ruthie and I'm in love with every aspect of design. Everything from contemporary design to rustic decor to modern industrial builds! I don’t care what it is, I LOVE IT ALL!!

    I dream at night of my next project, whether its a new wall finish, building or painting a piece of furniture or tackling an entire room makeover. I ABSOLUTELY love metallics & shine and therefore try to incorporate a little “bling” in all that I do.

    I offer interior design consultation and custom refinishing work here in here AZ. Feel free to contact me for an estimate!

  • Christine - Hi I love the silvery jewels coffee table. do you mind sharing a little info about the way you did it? Did you have to prime first? What type of silver paint did you use?

    Thanks for your help. It is beautiful!

    • Ruthie - Thank you so much! Yes. I did a very light sanding all over the piece (220 grit), just enough to scuff it up for the primer to adhere. I used Martha Stewart clear primer/sealer. Once it was dry I painted it with Martha Stewart Polished Silver metallic paint. Then once that was dry, I applied one coat of Martha Stewart Black Coffee metallic glaze, let that dry and then applied it once more.. It wasn’t dark enough the first time, but turned out perfectly after the second coat. Hope this helps!!


      • tiffany - Hi your table is beautiful. Did you use the sealer before or after you repainted it black?ReplyCancel

        • Ruthie - I didnt use sealer until the entire piece was finished. That is always the last step.ReplyCancel
