Paint Your Own Masterpiece!

Several new mirrors have arrived at The Whistling Elk – The mirror pictured is one of my favorites and I set it up behind a little cabinet I was planning on painting. Sitting at my desk I can look out and appreciate the mirror – the chandelier reflected in it and now the little cabinet that I just finished painting.  Love this little vignette!

The cabinet started out just a mousy brown and it is actually a new piece (not old) – I bought the piece with the specific intention to paint it.  I painted  a faded blue on the inside glazed it with champagne and stenciled some small  Fleur de Lis  randomly on the back panel.  (sorry didn’t photograph that)

I embossed the stencil so it stands out nicely and the zinc and brilliant white that I used on the piece make the stencil design shimmer.

Silver Star is dabbed on the hinges and on the teardrop door handles.  I took almost all the glaze off the top as I wanted it to look slightly different than the body of the piece.

It’s a lovely little French cabinet now!
