I’m thinking the type of graffiti gold spray paint might work?

Ooo those are pretty!

Try metal spray paint but be sure to obviously tape the glass. I know they make it because people spray paint their metal deck chairs and what not all the time. Or if you want more of an antique-ish look, you could use a brush to dab on paint made for metal. I’m sure you could find the paint in a lot of color’s at a craft store.

I would personally just tape off the glass (if it’s not removable) and then spray paint the bottom. 

Krylon is a great brand

http://www.krylon.com/products/

and I would look at these collections:

– Make It Stone!® Metallic Textured Paints

– Brush Metallic

– X-Metals

I personally would give X-Metals a try but to each their own. 🙂

Oh good point janana, I’d say take one with you to the craft store and I bet they can point you to the best metal spray 🙂 and other materials if you want to do the dabbing (things like sponges etc)

Well… if you’re silverware is going to be silver it may be just fine. Just a thought!

I agree with the other girls that a spray paint made to go on metals would be best. How about a copper finish? I think that would look great with your fall colors and be super dramatic!

Good luck!

Spray paint 🙂  Make sure you tape the glass really well so that the paint doesn’t leak through.

Leave it. Things don’t have to be all matchy-matchy. If you are surrounding it with a garland, it will look great and very “autumn”.

Honestly, I was thinking spray painting it, but after thinking about it, I think it would be nice if you just left it.  With the garland already being so many colors, it would actually pop and be an elegant touch!

I LOVE SPRAYPAINT because I’m lazy and hate painting! I would try Krylon products with their primer, it has great stick!
