Because it had such an ornate look, I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint ™ Versailles on the body. It needed 2 coats to cover the dark cherry stain.
|After distressing around the edges and filigree,|
the dark stain came through for a beautiful
time worn look.
|Dry brushing with a light color is another way|
of adding depth and dimension to your piece.
|By adding white dish wear and and Mercury glass decor,|
you add class and simplicity to your furnishings.
|Sorry, I forgot to take a before picture of the actual|
cabinet, but this was pretty close to it.
Sometimes it can take us longer than we wish to pick a color pallet for our furniture pieces, but with a little patience and inspirations from the things we love, they soon find their way into our hand and paint brushes. Have a wonderful week everyone!
