So here's the before:
|It's the dark chest at the forefront of this picture, very dark wood and|
a tapestry like cover on the lid.
I am thrilled with it, the green looks lovely and as the chest was so dark and a little varnished the paint has dried to create a real shabby look without any sanding. I was going to give it a second coat but I love the effect! Stage two will be to attach a trim around the edges of the seat and then it will be complete. As with most things that I do, it's a little rough around the edges but therein my friends, lies the character! The paint colour is 'Deep Adam Green' by Craig & Rose...it's a gorgeous colour, really!
Now I am off to write again, I have paint all over my hands too so I feel like a real artist today!!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
