I love the look of galvanized steel and today I'm creating the look using paint...

I bought the letters at Michael's Craft Store, they have an aisle right now with many shapes and sizes.

I painted the letters with Fusion Mineral Paint Metallics in Brushed Steel.

I pounced on the first and second coats of paint using a bristle brush.

When the paint dries it keeps the textured look which mimics galvanized steel.

I stained a board with a dark stain then used a nail gun to attach the letters to the board. I filled the holes and dabbed a little more paint to cover the nail holes.

I'm thrilled with the look and I can't wait to use it on my next table top!
