I am sharing with you today my latest favourite! This little piece turned out so pretty. It has been a while since I have used MMS Eulalie’s Sky on anything and after this piece, I am not sure what took me so long in doing so!
I decided that it should have a little ‘fancy’ so I decided to give it metallic silver accents. I think the Mercury Glass hardware tie in perfectly with the silver accents on the legs and wood decals.
Here is the before shot of it …. I sanded down the layers, and layers of paint off the top in order to reveal the beautiful wood top.
The top got a light coat of a custom mixed stain I created out of other stains I already had. The rest was painted and waxed with both clear and antiquing wax. Initially I had not used bonding agent but it did over chip a bit, so I went over those areas with more paint with bonding agent added. The metallic painted areas also got a coat of antiquing wax to tone down the ‘newness’ of the metallic paint.
Yes… that’s one of my wedding photos… :0) …. oh the pre babies body … where are you now? ha ha
I had so much fun trying out different ways to display it and I had so much help from my tiny props girl precious! … always helping ;) making sure every bead is in place!
I picked up these pretty light shades a while back from an antique shop, now I just need to find the right base for them. They remind me of a hat.
This sweet dresser is also going to The Little Deer Market on December 5 ... secretly hoping it doesn’t sell ;)
Making Broken Beautiful goes live tomorrow! I am ‘breaking’ all my rules this week and anything Christmas goes! Make sure you link up and share your Christmas inspirations!!
