Her secret ingredient? Brass shim stock. (A quick search online will tell you where you can find it!)
Brass shim stock is a thin metal sheeting that can give your interiors some SHINE! Here's how to use it:
Put adhesive onto the brass shim stock AND onto the surface where you want the brass shim stock to stick.
"Wait for this to get tacky, [after about] five minutes," Alison says. "Then both surfaces are really sticky and tacky and you're going to apply it."
After that, smooth it out with a wallpaper smoothing tool with force. Then, you can leave the glossy shim stock as is OR you can take it one step further and create a gorgeous patina toning (which is essentially aesthetically pleasing discoloration).
To do so, take a spray bottle filled with vinegar and spray the brass shim stock. Leave it for 24 hours and you will get a wonderful pattern that will stop every house guest in their tracks.
Use brass shim stock to cover cabinets, bars and other furniture, Alison suggests. It could be used for a pop of shine, or you can completely make over a piece. The possibilities are endless!
