~A Sweet Little Treat for the Home~
A beautiful piece of functional art! I really let my creativity flow on this piece! I had no plan, other than that I wanted it to look like an antique, metallic jewel box that had patina’d over time. I hand painted layers of cream, shades of metallic gold, and green for “patina” to add dimension and shine. Dark wax was applied to add some age. On the cabinet doors, Fleur de lis were stenciled in gold and made to look worn for added interest. Glass faceted pulls were added to the doors, while gold leaf and gold paint were applied to the inside for a sparkly surprise when it’s opened. For an extra glam detail, I applied gold leaf so that it looks like it starts on one leg, spills across the top, and down the other side. I’m calling it Boho Glam. It is a gorgeous, one of a kind, statement piece that would make a luxurious buffet, a glamorous cocktail bar, or an exquisite record cabinet.
