|All done -- finally!|
|I painted the curio I got from my cousin's estate --|
I used ASCP --
2 parts Pure White to 1 part Emile.
|The painting process was quite a sight.|
I practically had to crawl in to get to all those little areas inside.
|I accented the hardware with Warm Silver from Modern Masters Metallics which you have seen me use before.|
|I then made a wash of the Warm Silver and used that all over, then went back and dry brushed some of the high spots with it. I lightly outlined some of the curves with a small art brush.|
|The clean up on the glass was easy with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and Windex.|
I waxed the curio lightly with Clear Wax.
|Here the glass is back in place.|
|And here the silver is loaded in.|
|I polished silver all afternoon today --|
then I arranged it in the cabinet.
I was really shocked that the square footage held far less than I thought it would!
|Well, most of it fit.|
And it is VERY HARD to photograph.
I am very happy to have this curio cabinet from my late cousin's estate. Now I have made it mine, and it works very well in my little dining room.
One last look at how it looked before:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I can't leave you without mentioning this elegant man who loved to dress women beautifully -- the late Oscar de la Renta.
A class act.
