Have a color in mind that we don’t offer yet here at Metal Unlimited?

No problem! Our metal can be painted over by following a few easy steps.

We know that there are a rainbow of color options out there that would look great in your homes, yards, and offices, but we can’t offer every color of the rainbow…basically, we aren’t Skittles, ya know?

So, let’s walk you through how to paint your metal so that you can get the desired color, but with our exclusive Metal Unlimited products!

{insert picture of two or three products that have already been painted and finished in colors we do not offer}


We suggest starting with a white piece like this one:


You can find this ballerina piece here.

Here are a couple more white metal pieces from our site that we think would look great made-over with a pop of color:

The “Life’s a Beach” piece would look great in a bright yellow or sky blue for the beach house, yes?!

By starting with a white piece, you eliminate the need for priming. Pieces may need to be primed if they are any other color -OR- if they have a lot of rust/spots on them that are difficult to cover.

If you have to prime your piece, simply choose a light or dark primer paint (depending on what color you choose as the main color – lighter paints call for lighter primers; darker paints call for darker primers).

TWO: CLEAN YOUR METAL (if necessary)

Make sure that your metal is wiped down, free of any build up, grime, or dust. Failing to clean your metal may result in a very uneven, splotchy finish.

Locate the desired color of choice.

For this piece, I’m thinking a baby pink, something lighter that adds that “girly” feel. I also believe this piece would be great in gold!

The ready-to-use spray paint is what we suggest, in satin or glossy. This will help give your metal a shiny finish!

(If you choose to use another type paint (latex is the next choice), make sure that the finish is glossy or satin.)


For spray painting, start by pointing the can on the outer edge of the piece so that once it is sprayed, the paint does not hit the piece directly.

(This helps keep the paint from giving a “splattered” effect on the product; instead it should have a nice, smooth look as it is being sprayed across the metal.)

{insert picture of spray-painting metal, spray aimed outside as mentioned}

For brushing, use a synthetic brush and brush the paint across the metal in long, smooth motions to keep each coat even.

{insert picture of synthetic brush with latex paint; insert picture of painted metal with brush}

Continue to spray or brush until the desired level of color is achieved. We suggest at least three coats.

Once finished painting, let the newly painted metal dry.

After it has dried, if necessary, paint the backside of the metal, too.

Look over the piece for any missed spots, blemishes, etc., and adjust accordingly.

You CAN finish the piece off with a protective coat of sealant if you wish.

DIY Fringe Letters for Cinco De Mayo!

diy cinco de mayo fringe letters

DIY Fringe Letter


We’ve got a special treat for you today!  Here’s a cute DIY to add a little festive decor to your Cinco De Mayo party…or any party for that matter!

Materials Needed

  • Birchwood letters…buy here!
  • Colorful Tissue Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors


1. Gather your materials.

  • You can purchase single letters, or purchase multiple letters to create a banner or a word…for example “yay” “congrats” or “happy birthday”.  We have different fonts you can choose from, and all wood comes unfinished…perfect for crafting!
  • Tissue paper can be found just about anywhere, we bought ours from the local dollar store.

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 11.17.20 AM

2. Cut the tissue paper into 1-2 inch strips, depending on the size of your letters, and cut small sections into each of the strips to create the fringe.  You don’t have to worry about being exact, we found that messier cuts added more texture to the fringe which made it look more full.

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 11.17.31 AMScreen Shot 2016-05-05 at 11.17.40 AM

3. Starting at the bottom of your letter, glue the fringed strips into place one row at a time, slightly overlap each layer as you go.  This gives you a more fluid look with the fringe layers closer together.

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 11.17.48 AM

4. Glue the layers until you have covered the entire letter.

5. Once the whole letter is covered, tidy up the extra fringe around the edges using either scissors.  We want to make sure you can really see the shape of your letter so we can tell what its supposed to say.


6. Allow time to dry (shouldn’t take too long), step back and admire your festive letters!

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 11.19.46 AM

These letters are great for adding a little pizzazz to your taco bar, but they are also very versatile and can work for several occasions.  By simply changing up the color scheme, you can use these as  banners, backdrops for photo booths, weddings and birthday parties…anything really!

DIY moss covered letter

Diy Moss Covered letters

Moss covered letters look great, especially outdoors and in gardens.  This look can be achieved a number of ways, but in this post we will be showing you a step by step guide to creating this look with faux moss from a craft store.

Step 1. Gather your supplies
You will need:
-Wooden letter…buy here!
-Crossgrain ribbon for hanging
-Glue gun
-Paint + paint brush
Craft Moss…we purchased ours from the dollar store and used about 1.5 bags on this project
*Optional–Butterflies-we picked these up at the dollar store too!

Step 2. Paint your letter.
We used acrylic craft paint and painted 2 coats for even coverage.  We left 5 minutes to dry in between coats.  We chose green so that if any of the wood were to show through the moss it would blend better looking more natural.

Step 3. Using your hot glue gun, begin gluing the craft moss onto the letter.  Use scissors as necessary to cut and separate large clumps of the moss for even application.

Step 4.  Once you achieved the desired look of the moss, set aside for a few minutes to dry completely.  Since you are using hot glue, it should be completely dry pretty quickly.

Step 5. *Optional
We decided we wanted to add a little something extra to our letter to make it a little more whimsical.  We used a pack of butterflies to create this look.  We simply placed a small amount of hot glue on the butterflies and placed them into the moss.

Step 6. Once you are happy with your letter, turn over and using the hot glue, attach the ribbon.  You could use a number of things in place of the ribbon, such as twine or wire…it just depends on the look you are trying to achieve.

Allow time for ribbon to dry and hang your new diy moss letter, and be sure to tag us in your pictures! #metalunlimited
