I picked it up from kijiji for $20, brought it home and got to work right away.
I didn’t want to spend another dime updating it, so I used what I had at home.
I painted it with my free paint. It turns out that the colour is too blue for my living room, but looks gray on this. I sprayed the handles with chrome paint, then used the all over glaze (mixed with burn umber) over the entire piece, leaving it to sit for a while. To me they look like little jewels.
For now it is in the hallway at the top of the stairs as I’m not sure where it will live yet.
The birds were inspired by Miss mustard seed but since I can’t draw/paint, I used black vinyl cut out on my cricut.
This is my first attempt at distressing and glazing a piece of furniture. I was a little apprehensive about going overboard and I think I found just the right amount for my taste.
