Scott, from Wisconsin, emailed me a couple months ago. He was in the process of building an Entertainment Cabinet and had a finish in mind that he liked. It was black, with distressed areas revealing some red and yellow.
Did you catch that?
He built it by hand!
He painted it, by hand, using Caromal Colours Textured Basecoats – of course!
I could be at a loss for words… isn’t that ABSOLUTELY FABULOUSLY DELICIOUS? I think I need to keep those photos in jumbo-normal size so that you can see the lovely detail… He does not build furniture for a living…
It reminds me of a Habersham cabinet-
Here is the finish he was drawn to –
Here are some work in progress photos –
Scott first stained the entire piece (yellowish color) and then added some Caromal Colours red (Paprika) and black (Peppercorn)-
then used Caromal Colours Chipping Creme then painted over the whole thing with the Peppercorn. He told me when it dried he chose to not use sandpaper but instead scraped and chipped with a wood shim to reveal the under colors.
I love your piece, Scott!
