Sorry I have not posted in a while, but thankfully with the New Year….I am busy with an influx of new jobs! Thank You, Jesus!
Below is an old vintage pine chest. I refinished the top in chestnut and a mix of espresso. It was very banged up, but that adds the the “distressed” look. The base is done in one of my favorite colors, Dove white ( made into chalk paint). Clear wax applied then dark wax to give it an antique vibe.
Here is another metallic silver dresser that I just completed for a client. This dresser is Asian inspired and was in a deep mahogany like finish. After prep work, I painted black…a little trick for metallics is to paint the base coat in black flat. Then I painted in my new favorite Modern Masters, silver shimmer. My client wanted it to look aged and classic. I chose to shade (glaze) in copper penny bronze. The bronze complimented the original hardware nicely. Usually I seal in polycrylic satin, but for this piece I decided to go with a semi gloss. I absolutely loved the result. I hope you enjoy this transformation.
I’ve been through many metallic paints but I have to say, Modern Masters is my absolute favorite! This antique French Provincial went from the past to the present in a flash of metallic silver. I kept the hardware original because the natural patina looked cool, mixing the old with the new. Hope you enjoy the pics!
