Patina Worn Aged Style Look Painted DIY

Patina is a very interesting look of being worn, of being aged, and comes on many kinds of surfaces with many techniques. Many times you will see it with a worn weathered look, maybe forms of metal that have that outdated worn look from time, colored and rusty patina, and most frequently just that old worn time look. This is a look that many of us like to incorporate into our homes with different pieces, and over time have found that there are techniques for us to achieve this same look ourselves. 

There are many times that we can achieve this look with a little bit of sanding, and adding some different techniques of painting. When you layer like 2 to 3 shades of color in similar shades you can create a depth, and wonderful character for the piece.  Maybe using a sponge, or a brush and some layering we can also create this same look with another twist to it. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of paint to get the look that you would like.

Who would have guessed that some of this old worn stuff would later be treasured! Items that have texture, patina, and vintage character is a look that many of us have added to our homes over time, and a look to this day that is still much sought after too.

I adore pieces from another time without the new shiny look. Who needs the new items from factory. It's about balancing, and paying respect to the old with maybe some uneven textures, interesting vintage antiques, collectibles, and some aged items over time.  

So, if you admire that old worn look think about using the look for patina. Thanks for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams, and hope to see you again soon.
