Black Gold Credenza

Sometimes, we have to give ourselves a bit of time to find an idea that works with a particular piece. That's not what happened with this one. I knew what I wanted to do with it before picking it up from the Craigslist seller.

Concept: The golden veneers are beautiful. It needed black to enhance the golden color and lots of aging to give it an aged formal sort of feel. I used black paint that was mixed with Plaster of Paris to make homemade chalk paint. The white specs and shades of subtle grays in the finished piece are a result of sanding. The piece was sealed with Minwax Wipe-On Polyurethane.

This piece was given to my sister so when I have a chance I'll take better shots of it. Sorry for the blur in some of these photos!
