Trying to round out the posts – customers projects, things I’m working on, and all the fun paint projects created in our workshops –
The body of this pedestal kept its original finish, the top, base and accent was given a warm silver/gold finish with Toner –
A layered, chippy finish can be obtained a number of ways – here the texture on the first layer is Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, but instead of ‘chipping creme’ and then another Textured Basecoat she used American Paint Co’s Fireworks Red, one coat painted on just enough to cover. When it dries you can sand with a 150 grit to get thru to the textured base, and you can damp rag it to reveal as well.
I think APC Dark Wax completed this finish-
Brown wood drawers before, I think this one is our custom Cottage Paint color Gorgeous Grey, and the hardware was refinished using our Hardware Kit Brass –

Top is 2 coats of Reclaim Mocha, the rest has one coat Reclaim Mocha, then a rustic layer of metallic Silver Blend, and Toner

Love how this one turned out – the attendee brought a pillow from home to match – she used Textured Basecoat Chocolate, then I think the blue was Reclaim Nantucket – sanded when dry, and stenciled with a champagne metallic –

Thought I’d include this one, one of our larger Aged Paper Creating workshops – I think I shared the final photo months back, but this was their fun group –
