and you thought I was pulling your leg 🙂 That’s me in the middle smiling at my brother
Little did I know, years later I’d be painting a piece of furniture in a color named Smoky Mountain Gray
I started with this lovely gem – such a pretty piece to paint, and in excellent condition
The drawers were lined with Detroit Newspapers from 1979. Good for the future owner because the inside drawers are like new
My inspiration? a picture frame finish that I created for my mom
I started with a base of Reclaim Licorice black
added glue in areas, as I went along, and painted over it all with the CeCe Caldwell Smoky Mountain
This paint is easy to brush out, thick but creamy and levels out just enough so you’re not left with heavy brushy marks… and it goes far. One coat covered this piece and I only used not even 1/3 of the can
After a very light sand I aged and sealed it with a Liberon Medium Oak Wax
and for an extra custom punch, I gave the top an animal hide texture in a warm silver metallic
My new buddy John, owner at Profaux, told me to sell it for no less than $1500…
and he said I should sign it. After all, it’s one of a kind. Custom…
I haven’t signed it. Yet.
For Sale $899
