Beautiful in Black and Gold

I haven't been into painting anything black lately, 
but I am loving the look of gold and black!

Almost a before pic, I caught myself before it was too late!

I didn't prime this piece because it 
would have taken a lot more coats of black.

I painted right over the hardware too...

 Two coats of black with the details highlighted in gold Rub 'n' Buff!

What a difference...

This is the newest piece in the shop 
and it has a pretty mirror to match!

Ooh la la...

The details really make this piece fabulous!

It could be yours... $295

Thanks for looking!

Furniture partially made from old crates!

I have been told this is a double wig chest. 
I just thought is was really unique with the two doors on either side, 
but apparently that's where you would keep your wigs!

The most unique part is that it's partially made from old crates!
Look at the drawer bottom!

I don't know why, but I am calling her Gertrude...

Here's how she looked when she came to me... 
Cute, but in need of some love (kinda like me LOL)

I wasn't going to do a whole lot to her. 
First I primed the hardware then 
did a quick coat of pale yellow all over.

I liked the way she was looking distressed... 
but still thought she needed something else.

Another drawer bottom...

Now we're getting somewhere! 
I dry brushed some Chartreuse over the pale yellow.

Then distressed, I am happy with the outcome!

As I was working on this piece I recalled another piece 
of furniture made from old crates that I had done a rehab on,

Super quick and super shabby!

We got this cute Art Deco vanity in and all it needed was some shabby love!

Here is Miss Venessa before her makeover...

I had this soft pink oops paint that I painted a quick coat over the white, 
not caring if it was completely covered.

This project only took about an hour to an hour and a half to complete!

Now for some shabby love!

This vanity already had glass knobs, so they didn't need to be replaced.
