can it even be done? also could you do the barrel as well? was thinking of using an 18" barrel on it

There is a guy ( can not recall who) that browns barrels and put a pattern that looks like damascus.

Someone like Doug Turnbull could color case the receiver, but not the barrel which can't be done.

The 870 receiver is under little stress so color casing would be very possible, but a lot depends on the steel used. Some steels won't give good colors.
Another consideration is that the 870 magazine tube is brazed into the receiver. There would be issues with doing the color casing and keeping the mag tube in place due to the heat.

I'd suggest a color cased receiver, mirror polish barrel, bright chrome bolt and the lifter either mirror polished blued, bright chrome, or color cased.
The aluminum trigger group could be coated however you want as far as color or level of gloss.
