Lately it seems all my work is being done on mid-century pieces. I went up a few decades and
wandered into the '70's. Ah yes, the wonderful '70's. Great times.
But dreadful clothing and furniture! Behold the common dresser:
But these do clean up nicely!!!
I would like to give a shout out to Dionne over at The Turquoise Iris for this inspiration.
I saw one she did in black and white that was just beautiful! She always does such unique work.
I used a semi-gloss in both the white and the black. But I had the hardest time getting the top
to smooth out. I used a Sherwin Williams acrylic and painted at least 3-4 coats. Was not happy.
I sanded between coats but just could not get his smooth. So I completely sanded it off and started over.
This time I used a BM black. Much better.
The handles were sprayed with carbon mist and highlighted w/gold gilding wax.
And of course there always has to be a little surprise detail when you look behind the door.
Linking up at my fave parties!! :
