silver leafing.

over the past couple of days, i worked on a piece that will be a nightstand for my client. she couldn't find exactly what she wanted, and had a "vision" for the piece, so she bought this at ballard's for a great deal, and i made it over:

Photobucket
she wasn't in love with the lighter/medium-tone stain on it, and wanted something with a little sparkle. there was a picture frame in her bedroom that was our "inspiration" for the distressed silver leafing, so we did that around the corners, and i used a faux painting product to darken the stain on the rest of it:

Photobucket
(still slightly wet on the top from the polyurethane that was drying when i took the photo!)

Photobucket
as you can see, i did a thicker band of distressed/antiqued silver leafing around the top of it, then thinner lines on the corners of the two side legs, the front panel, and the very bottom panel. she will be replacing the hardware with something that fits the "new" piece better!

Photobucket
(it was kind of dark yesterday outside, so my photos are grainy! :( )

i also did this poker table project for brooke (client), and this antique freezer project for her. you can see a little of her style! i love it...i always get to experiment and have fun when i'm at her house :)

and, a question for my fellow ATL-iens: where can i buy a small amount of grasscloth? it's only going to be used for a furniture project, and i don't want to buy a whole roll...

    I have left-over grass cloth from my kitchen. If you like the color/texture I am sure we can work something out.

  8. I have the same question as Dayna...what type of product did you use to darken the stain on the dresser? It looks fab!

  9. I'll have to ask again about how you darkened the stain color... I'm working on a table top and I just can't get it that rich brown color I want. If I lived in Georgia I would have had you do it, but alas, I live in Michigan. Way too far!

    The color of this buffet is exactly the color I'm trying to achieve but the golden oak is just not cooperating.

    Thanks (and love your work,Kristin. I look at what you post several times a week. Love the most recent baby room, btw)
