This server we found at an estate sale. It was already primed in white. It had some nice detail that wasn't showing up very well with it painted all white.
I painted it black then because it was white to begin with and I don't like white to show through when I distress black I had to do something different.
So I dry brushed all the highlights and details with White.
Turned out rather different and sold when it went to Treasures Resale Consignment Store in Roswell, GA
