Gilt

Snow white milk paint, light gray glaze and a some gold leafing.

On this piece.


Love it.








And the same treatment on a night stand.





Sadly I have no before pictures. 

Let's just leave it that the previous owner had painted it with Krylon Make It Stone spray paint.

???

It was not fun to sand that stuff off. 

And when I picked it up from the previous owner this happened 


Blown out tire. 

Yeah.

It was one of those before pieces. 



This piece is available in The SHOP.

  10. Yikes on the tire but really, this piece may have been worth it. :D I for one am kind of a fan of the gold revival. Thanks for sharing this week on BeColorful.
