Henredon Redo

for the life of me I can't find the original photo before I had started the process. Oh well. I'm sure you can use your imagination on this one. The piece was intact but a little worn and tired. I decided on GF milk paint in Driftwood Gray.
 For a little dimension, I mixed up some black/metallic paint in a glazing medium and wiped it all over the cabinet. I left it on for about 30 seconds and then used a wet rag to wipe it off. 

That process is completely individual. If you want it darker and more pronounced, leave it on longer.

Because of the camera flash,

Spring Colored Campaign Chest

I have done many, many campaign pieces. A few years ago they were all the rage. Now that things have calmed down on the campaign trail (so to speak!) they show up everywhere! I picked up this guy off CL last year. Wasn't going to win any beauty awards, I can say that much. 

 Hideous colors and a marred laminate top to boot! yay for me. 

These pieces always invoke a glossy Palm Beach vibe to me. 
 And what better colors than white and coral say Florida??? Exactly. 

 As usual, I used my BM Advance in glossy on this one.
