With the spring on, gardening work is keeping me quite busy these days. I have been looking forward to talk about my most favorite projects. I wanted to make a statement with my entry way and had looked for so many console tables online and in-store. But nothing really stole my heart. I started looking for some antique pieces that I could impose my charm over. I finally found this beautiful carved console table for 150$.
I didn’t have to do any sanding on this piece of furniture, I just started applying my first coat of antibes green to achieve my double shaded look on this one.
Now the fun part begins on topping it up with the double shade. I just did a very soft dry brushing with florence so that I dont loose the antibes green shade over it.
I really love the way it turned after the dry brush coat. I want to highlight the subtle curves I have on the console with antique gold buff.
I took a piece of cloth and buffed the gold leaf over it.
And as the final touch apply dark wax (very little dry brushing) and clear wax.
