Post Thanksgiving

This is the week after thanksgiving and I have a piece to show that was commissioned by a client :) Thats a good thing!
She had a mirror and a small bombay chest that she had found and wanted it to look like a picture she had found in a magazine. So with picture in hand I set out to make the change.


Very Cute But not what she wanted.

It was painted black and then tan at the corners sponge painted with two more colors a carmel and brown then I glazed the tan part. The mirror was black when I got it so I took the carved part and painted it tan and sponged and glazed the same as the chest.

Another piece that was finished is this one. It is a little hard to see cause it is wrapped in plastic. Thats how it arrived in the shop. But it is quite modern and in a blond finish.

Here is the after.

It is a very striking piece, painted brown then stenciled with pale blue up one side across the top and down the other side. Then the drawers have a raised center so we started the stencil on the raised part of the top drawer and moved it down at each raised part. the two doors used only the center of the stencil. The outer edge of the drawers were painted with the blue then glazed with a brown.

Thats it for this week. Enjoy!
