These two pair well together –
A mantel, base painted Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Peppercorn
over that, a blend of metallic bronzes
topped off with Black Glaze
topped off with a little sparkle
Love this color for mantels – would look good in any room, don’t you think?
Oops! Almost forgot – want to see the before? See that crazy shrimp colored
F A U X marbled thing
tucked behind that gorgeous buffet?
Oh geez, louise…..
This next one – we’ve all seen one of these before right?
They are worthy of updating, after all, replacing isn’t that easy – most are custom fit. I painted these for a client, and will say they would have been easier to paint hung. Clean the surface well, tape off the glass, and then brush /roll one coat of Reclaim Licorice (black) –
Let it dry, sand to remove any imperfections, and apply one more coat
Again, feel the surface for any imperfections – light sand with a fine grit paper to remove. Apply a metallic, brushing on thin coats until fully covered.
A black glaze, over the dried metallic finish, adds depth.
Lastly, once the finish is good and dry, apply several coats of a hard topcoat for protection. I used Minwax Wipe On Poly, Satin (oil based)
You could refinish yours with an eight ounce licorice, an eight ounce metallic blend, an eight ounce black glaze, a can of poly, and a brush. About seventy-five bucks to replace the doors yourself. And you’d even have some left to do a few other things laying around the house 🙂
